From being acontestant herself to judging them, Shreya Ghoshal has come along way

VIVEK KAR S hreya Ghoshal entered the world of Bollywood through the singing reality show alt145 Sa Re Ga Ma Paalt146. After the fame and s

uccess that she received, there was no looking back for Shreya as now she is a part of the top rung singers.

Continuing her tryst with the singing reality shows, once again Shreya has entered the world of music as a judge post her stint with alt145 Star Voice of India – Chhote Ustaadalt146. This time the award winning singer is seen judging alt145 X Factoralt146. According to Shreya, singing reality shows are not only a platform for contestants but also for people like her who get due recognition as a singer.

alt147 Reality shows have become very important for those who belong to the music industry as we singers and musicians get an identity through such a platform. The music composers donalt146t get half the credit that they deserve. We are known as playback singers because we never come in front of the camera.

The only way our fans can know more about our personality and behaviour is through these reality shows. After I started judging these reality shows people have come to know more about me. It really helps to bring you under the limelight,alt148 says Shreya.

Been in a contestantalt146s shoes before, Shreya recalls her past memories. alt147 While I was taking the auditions for alt145 X factoralt146, I became extremely emotional because I remembered the day when I had come to give auditions as a participant. I was very nervous and was holding my dadalt146s hand. I remember once I even cried on the show because my throat was not well. Seeing me, my dad had also cried and it was a very heart breaking moment for me.

Even after so many years I have stage fear but when I see the audience my fear disappears,alt148 she says.

Much water has passed under the bridge since then and Shreya is now co- judging the reality show with biggies like Sonu Niigaam and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, both of whom have had some past connection with the crooner. alt147 Sonu Niigaam was then a host on the reality show through which I had come and Bhansali sir is the one who gave me a break in the industry. I became very emotional when I came to know that they will be sitting on the judgealt146s chair with me. I know Sanjay sir very well… it is music that inspires him to make such great movies,alt148 says the singer.

Recently rumours had it that being contemporaries in the industry Shreya and Sunidhi Chauhan donalt146t share a comfortable relationship. Clearing the air Shreya says, alt147 This is not true. Sunidhi and I are very good friends. Every time we meet, we hug and enjoy each otheralt146s company. In fact you will never see me fighting with anyone. I am a very quiet girl.alt148 With many musicians experimenting with acting, we asked Shreya about her interest in facing the camera. But the girl turned it down outright. alt147 I have no intentions of getting into acting. I just want to stay a good singer,alt148 she concludes.
