After Himani Kapoor’s debut album, now its turn of another success story of saregamapa. Aishwarya and Ujjaini, winners of Challenge 2006 Ek Main Ek Tu Contest launched their first album in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa this week. Like the contest, the name of the album is also titled Ek Main Ek Tu.
“The album has variety of songs – some have a Sufi touch, a few folk and rest are with an Indo-Western flavour. Overall, you can say that the theme of the album is romantic. I have sang a solo madhosh hua, which also a romantic number.” says an enthusiastic Aishwarya, “Satish-Ajay have composed three songs and Harpreet too. Further, Shibu –Pinto worked on the unplugged version of chu kar mere mann ko.”
Why such a delay in launching the album? “Actually HMV asked us to perform on a number of songs and then finalized seven. In the meantime, we have featured in many live performances with Uditji, Sunidhi and Shaan bhaiyya. Ujjaini and I used to get nervous at times but most of the times, the performance ended us a rocking one.”
And how was it performing on the Sa Re… stage after a long gap? “Well to be honest I was scared before going on stage this time. But when we performed le le meri jaan from our album the audience was so impressed that they started screaming once more and we did not disappoint them.”
The video of the album will go on air soon while the album launch episode will be telecast on Friday.

Laloo Prasad Yadav is the next guest on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 (1st September Episode). When it comes to entertainment, our Union Minister for Railways, Laloo Prasad Yadav does not like anything other than the desi stuff. So, before he accepted the offer of being a special guest on Zee’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, he made sure that all the participants would only wear Indian attire. Even the show’s theme, which was earlier a western one, had to be changed to an Indian theme on Laloo’s insistence.
The creative team of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa were quite apprehensive before approaching Laloo. They were wondering if he’d accept their offer. But, they were pleasantly surprised when the Laloo agreed to be a guest on the show. But, he had just one pre-condition. His public relation officer told the creative team that Laloo wants none of the female participants to wear western clothes.
As the team did not want to take any chances, they changed the show’s theme from western to Indian. All the participants, including anchor Aaditya Narayan and the judges, will wear traditional costumes.
Payaol Patel, creative director of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, confirms the news and says, “It was easy to approach Lalooji’s as his PRO is an avid watcher of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. As the episode’s theme is UP-Bihar, all the female participants will be wearing ghagra-cholis while the male participants, judges and anchor will be wearing dhoti and kurta. Getting the Union Minister for Railways as a guest on our show is a big achievement for us, so we are also transforming the set into a village.”
The security measures on the show have been made tighter for Laloo’s arrival. The security arrangements were already very high after Himesh Reshmamiya, who is a judge on the show, got threats from the underworld.
The creative team of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa was really surprised when they realised Laloo Prasad Yadav’s popularity. “Everyone from the Pakistani participants, Amanat, Junaid, and Musarrat and Mouli from the US is a big fan of Lalooji. I guess he is one political personality who is popular across all age groups,” adds Payaol

Pakistan’s Junaid Sheikh may have been eliminated from Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa but is confident that his singing career is all ready to take off. He is already working on his own album with Vishal-Shekhar, where he is composing and singing his own songs….
Speaking about his plans, Junaid says, “Right now I am in Mumbai and will start work on my album immediately. I will compose music as well as write the lyrics. That’s all I can say as of now.”
Junaid, who was a big hit with girls on the show, has already finished recoding the title song for the film Love.com, the music for which has been composed by Bappi Lahiri. “I have also finished recording for the film Bal Ganesha and for an album with Ashaji and Shankar,” adds Junaid.
Even at home, Junaid likes to experiment with his music. “I have installed a software which helps in music composing. Then once a friend was having some difficulty and asked me to sing for him. Doing such stuff only inspired me to get better.”
The singer reveals that he had to face stiff opposition from his family. “My father wanted me to join his business. That time even the circumstances were such that I thought I would not be able to make it as a singer. But thankfully Sa Re… happened.”
In Friday’s episode of Sa Re…, Junaid performed on the song woh pehli baar jab hum mile. Reliving his last few moments on the show, Junaid says, “After my elimination, everyone started crying and I had to tell them not to do so. The entire situation was totally opposite.”
And how many calls did he receive from girls? “So many that finally I had to switch off my phone,” he smiles.

Aditya says, last week you were just 500 votes behind Raja – but this week you are the topper.. He becomes the titan style of the week and he gets a titan watch..
Himesh says – I was worrying if there would be any difference in votes as I told about love, romance etc and didnt want Aneek’s votes to get effected.. But that did not happen.. I am happy with this result.. He says – you all might be thinking, why I bring all these issues – but certain bondings have to be brought and only music talks – I cannot do.. I will keep talking about all this..
He sings In dino from metro..
Himesh – you sang very well.. Aneek asks Himesh – will I get her? Himesh asks, before you were saying that you are not in love, so do you confess that you are in love? Aneek says – yes I am in love.. Ismailji goes on stage and Aneek gets blessings from him.. Himesh says – I dont want to break your heart, but I feel you will not get it.. Amanat also loves her..

His mother is there among the audience.. She thanks Zee TV, mentors and public and everyone who have brought harpreet here..
Harpreet sings dil ne tumko chunliya hai from jhankaar beats..
Junaid is called on stage by Aditya and Vishal calls Raja too on stage.. He says, its very sad that one among you will be eliminated today and it is the format of the contest too.. So, cannot do anything for that.. Shekhar says – Junaid is having throat infection and when you have throat infection, I know how much it troubles and you will not be able to perform well.. But you are doing a great job.. He adds that Harpreet is improving a lot and giving brilliant performance..
Vishal says to Raja – Aneek is number 1, and being number 2 is more beneficial because you get the inspiration and you both have to maintain the standard of the stage by performing better than the other.. When there is competition, one tries to prove better than the other and this way the standard will rise and this way who ever sings well will become the winner..
Ismail interrupts and says – I can talk about the winner too.. Its not that only these two can be winners.. There are also others who can be winners.. why only these two.. I wish Raja, Aneek, Amanat and every contestant become the winner..
Vishal then says, he was talking about only the competition between Raja and Aneek because there is tough competition between them for votes.. Ismailji says, why only these two?? How come the competition can be between these two??
Bappida then tries to cool them down by saying Let the winner be decided public.. Ismailji says Only this public has made us (the mentors) a winner too..
Shekhar then gets up and thanks all the mentors for supporting all the contestants…
