A new singing reality show has boarded with judges Karan Johar, Badshah, Shalmalee and Shekhar Ravjani. At the press launch event of show titled Dil Hai Hindustani, one of the judged Shekhar quipped, “It’s a proud moment for us as the world will sing our (Bollywood) songs.”
Shekhar said, “Music has a universal language and we will have contestants participating from across the globe. It is a great means to connect and also bring forward some of the best talents. When we had foreigners singing Hindi songs, it brought in a warm vibe and I was so proud of our culture, music and film industry. It has touched so many and will continue to do so.”
“The talent is phenomenal in the country and such projects are really important to give them a platform. I had a wonderful time being a part of all of them. Ranjeet Thakur (Producer-Frames) is an old friend and when he asked me to come on-board for Dil Hai... I had no reason to say no. He has been producing reality series for a while now and Star Plus has a great reach. I am sure my stint with this series will be amazing,” the music composer said.
On the new trend of internet, he thinks, “I think the internet gives a good push to singles and new artists. The industry has massive opportunities and it’s a great phase to be at. Be it launching their own songs to getting opportunities through reality shows, the new age singers get a great outlook.”
A very good luck for Shekhar and team for Dil Hai Hindustani.
