Bollywood break

"Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs" winner Sanchita Bhattacharya makes her Bollywood debut



STEPPING AHEAD Sanchita Bhattacharya

Sanchita Bhattacharya, winner the reality show, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs'06, has got her first break in Bollywood. She is currently recording a song for the film Mithya produced by Planman Motion Pictures.

The film to be released early next year is being directed by Rajat Kapoor. Chicago-based hip hop composer Sagar Desai has composed the film's music.

On the decision to let Sanchita sing a number, Rajat Kapoor says, "I am very excited about it. When I first heard her at the studio, I was convinced that she is the voice we were looking for." Sagar too is gaga about Sanchita's voice quality. "I am amazed by the pace at which Sanchita picked up the song. It took us barely 15 minutes to do a scratch, which by itself was as good as the final recording." He feels she sings quite like a seasoned playback singer already.

As Sanchita has won the talent hunt recently based on viewer votes, Planman is hopeful that her popularity will take the song to millions of households.
