Shekhar Ravjiani is overwhelmed by the response to the first edition of singing reality show, Indian Idol Junior. The singer-composer, who judged the show, says he wants to work with the talented youngsters in future.
Ravjiani shared the judges' panel with Vishal Dadlani and Shreya Goshal. The grand finale of the show was aired Sunday, when 10-year-old Anjana Padmanabhan from Bangalore became the winner.
Padmanabhan was among the top 11 contenders on the show. For Ravjiani, all of them are winners. "For me, all the kids on the show are winners - for their talent and also for their courage and determination that's brought them all this far," Ravjiani posted on Twitter.
"It'll be wonderful to create music and collaborate with these kids someday. There can't be a prouder moment than that to look forward to," he added. Ravjiani, who has composed tracks with Dadlani for movies like Ra.One, Student Of The Year, Gippy, and Chennai Express, believes the music industry has a bright future thanks to talented kids.
"Our music industry's got a bright future with the phenomenal talent that this show's unearthed," he wrote. Celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor added glamour to the finale of the show, while the participants by their confidence and singing prowess mesmerised audiences.
