‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ singers to get chance to shoot with Urvashi Rautela
Mika will be seen mentoring aspiring singers on the Zee TV show. The 38-year-old “Aaj ki Party” hitmaker recently shot with the “Sanam Re” actress for the video of his upcoming album.
While Mika did not give any detail on their video, on being asked about Urvashi, he quipped, “We have decided in ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ that we will bring Urvashi and whoever is a good singer, we will make a video with them and her…”
The singer has been quite open in expressing his admiration for Urvashi by posting about her and sharing pictures with her on Twitter.
Reports of their relationship and marriage have been making rounds. Actor Kamal Rashid Khan aka KRK claimed the duo were tying the knot soon.
Urvashi, 22, denied the reports saying she would sue KRK for spreading false news.
When asked about his reaction, Mika said, “Kamaal is like my son… He is the only guy who the entire industry runs from but he runs from me because he loves me. He is my neighbour, so I have told him if he says anything I’ll directly come to his place.”
Mika will be seen sharing the judging panel with Bollywood composers Pritam and Sajid-Wajid.
Heaping praise on the music directors, Mika, who has lent vocals for many hit numbers for them, said, “When ‘Mauja Mauja’ had come, many friends of mine thought it was my composition, or ‘Gandi Baat’ was my idea or ‘Aaj ki Party’…
But all the songs have been composed by Pritam da. I recorded songs for Sajid-Wajid, ‘Chinta ta ta’ and ‘Boom Boom’, so the credit goes to them.”
Talking about the show, the popular singer said it will give a platform to young artists to meet bigwigs from the music industry and Bollywood.
“Whenever singers like me come from Punjab, they have only one aim, to meet talented musicians like Pritam and Sajid-Wajid…Through ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ they will get to meet and sing with prominent people. If tomorrow Shah Rukh Khan comes on the show to promote a film, the kids will get to meet him,” Mika said.
Wajid, meanwhile, said for the first time on the show, the judges will train contestants on new compositions.
“This time we will compose new songs because we have seen whenever singers come they find difficulty in playback singing. To avoid that, we have taken a step that we will compose new songs and then train them. This criteria is very important this season,” he said.
The fresh season of the show, which returns after a hiatus of three years, will be hosted by the singer-actor Aditya Narayan. The show premieres on March 26 on Zee TV.
