Salman Ali: Proud to turn a coach for Superstar Singer contestants


What’s happening on the work front for you? Children are too pure to be worried about competition. I can never be strict with kids (laughs). There’s always criticism around kids’ reality shows that it takes away the innocence of children. And now I am really looking forward to this exciting new stint. Reality series also helps one gain fans worldwide which in return gets you numerous live shows. Through these shows, we get a chance to interact with them. The Haryana lad recently spoke exclusively to indianexpress.com about life after winning the championship, his role as the captain and more. It has definitely changed, and only for the better. They have such purity in their hearts and are passionate about their craft. There is so much love out there. Now you have a team’s responsibility on your shoulders. As for these kids, I always believe that children are God’s biggest gifts. Popular Photos

I really don’t feel that it happens. So I have already sung for the film Sui Dhaaga and Sony TV’s shows Chandragupta Maurya and Vignaharta Ganesh. They know only the language of love. Advertising

During Indian Idol, all that you had to be worried about was your performance. Training becomes easier when you have students who want to learn. It’s their love towards the craft that gets them on these shows. So I am just guiding rather than teaching them. On the contrary, I feel that the child and their family gain respect through these platforms. It’s a proud moment to turn a coach for these talents. A lot also depends on their mood. So live shows are more of a source of happiness for me. My aim in Indian Idol was to win hearts, I never worried about competition. They get recognition and more love. I met the media as a contestant and now I am giving interviews as the captain of Superstar Singer. Has that become a good source of income for artistes? As artistes, that emotion of meeting fans and seeing their happiness is so much better than just earning money. Also, monetarily, I finally feel settled as we have managed to pay off all the loans. Does that add pressure? Here are excerpts from the conversation:
How has life changed after winning Indian Idol? What kind of a coach are you? Advertising

Salman Ali, as readers would know had won the last season of Indian Idol. What more could I ask for? Also, I feel children learn better when you become one of them. And I am proud of the bunch that we have found for the show. What’s your take on the same? I believe one should just go on and sing from their heart on the stage. There is definitely a responsibility but there’s no added pressure for sure. I believe a lot also depends on luck. Honestly, even when I was a contestant, I never took any pressure. The amount of love and blessings that I have received in the past few months have been overwhelming. So we can never push them for anything. A show runs for about four-six months; it’s too short a time to take away the innocence of a child. As you mentioned we do have fans all across and it’s never possible to meet them. Wherever I go, people gather to meet me. 0
