To be given an opportunity to give these talented singers a break is an honour in itself” says Udit Narayan on the sets of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa
With a rich legacy of over 25 years, Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has been successful in
discovering some truly invaluable gems of the music fraternity including Shreya Ghoshal, Kunal
Ganjawala, Kamal Khan, Amanat Ali, Raja Hassan, Sanjeevani and Bela Shende amongst
many others. In the wake of the enormous success of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs last year,
Zee TV is back with its most iconic, longest-running singing reality show that has managed to
stay relevant to music lovers across the country – Sa Re Ga Ma Pa.
During the Udit Narayan special episode endearingly known as Udit Narayan ka Tyohaar each
of the contestants put in a great effort to recreate some of the memorable songs of Udit
Narayan, leaving him all nostalgic. One such performance amongst them was West Bengal’s
young Neelanjana Ray who performed with the contestant Vraj, which caught the judges’
attention when she beautifully sang the song ‘Pehla Nasha’ and ‘Ho Gaya Hai Tujhko’.
Impressed by her skills, Udit Narayan also joined in to sing a verse of the latter song. While
Neelanjana and Vraj put up a stunning performance, it was Udit Narayan and Aditya Narayan’s
surprising revelation that left everyone stunned.
Sharing an anecdote about the upcoming song Udit Narayan said, “I was traveling one day
when Aditya sent me a video of Neelanjana’s song and I was so impressed by her voice and
when Aditya said I should sing a song with her, I was elated as our new song brings back a 90’s
nostalgia and I wish everyone enjoys the song as much I did while singing it. We have such
great talent here on this show and to be given an opportunity to give these talented singers a
break is an honour in itself. To showcase such wonderful talent, we decided to work with
Neelanjana, and it fits perfectly with our new composition.”
While complimenting the new song Himesh Reshammiya said, “Udit ji and Neelanja’s voice
are just incredible but I would also like to praise Shreyas for making such an amazing
composition. Their voice is just blending with the music, Neelanja’s so young to be making such
amazing music it is just so impressive.” While Neelanja’s performance of her upcoming song with Udit Narayan was an eyecatcher of this episode, the other contestants were also seen putting up some outstanding performances to the original tracks by Udit Narayan will leave you mesmerized.
