Current heart throb rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh after the success of recent hits like 'Chaar Botal Vodka…', 'Sunny Sunny…', 'Party All Night…', 'Lungi Dance…' and others has been roped in by Star Plus's to mentor young budding singers for their new singing reality show 'India's Raw Star'.
Elated at the astounding success, a humble Honey Singh credited his success to the blessing of his mother and everyone who has helped me. Candidly confessing in interview he said, “I think it is the blessings of my mother that has paved path for success.” He added, “Further I owe my success to Bollywood superstars like Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar who showed faith in my talent and gave me break in their movies.”
Honey Singh who has studied music at the Trinity School in the United Kingdom, speaking about the new singing reality show 'India's Raw Star' said, “The show is different from the run of the mill singing reality shows because the show gives platform to those budding young singers who are raw and self learner. They are not imitators of Bollywood legendary singers but have their own imitable style.”
The 31-year-old singer-composer, who is putting his heart and soul in the TV show said, “I am highly excited about the show because when I began my career in singing I used to be a self-learner hence I always motivate such singers. I remember when I won recognition as a music composer and singer in Punjab; I had lunched many budding singers and never used to fiddle with their originality.”
He continues, “Since at India's Raw Star, we are practicing the similar trend hence I would like to be an inspirational mentor, guide and a friend for contestants.”
Another novelty of the show is that there will be no jury to judge the contestants. Instead, the audience and Singh will decide who wins. The show will be hosted by Gauhar Khan.
