My usual riaz will not suffice anymore. I am in the galas and IÃÂve to do much more. IÃÂm also very nervous because, besides singing, IÃÂve got to improve my performance, too.
My toughest competition
Definitely Prasenjit. He is not only a good singer, but he is also a good stage performer. I want to sing and perform like him.
But I know I can give him some stiff opposition now. Earlier, I was not a confident singer because I only sang in the Army orchestra. But after rising in the ranks in Indian idol, my confidence has grown with me. Now that IÃÂm in the galas, there is a new and different confidence in me.
I would like to bring back...
Roshan. I don`t want him back just because he is a very good friend of mine. I want him back because he is a good singer and he took risks. He sang a different song in the piano round. And he had practiced a great song for the wild card, too. But he never got a chance to perform.
