The Voice India is turning out to be one of the most loved music reality shows on Indian Television. After three months of rigorous competition, trials and heartbreak the show found its winner in Farhan Sabir . The show is judged by Neeti Mohan, Shaan, Salim Merchant and Benny Dayal and welcomes talent from all over India. Four contestants made it to the finale, Parakhjeet Singh, Niyam Kanungo, Farhan Sabir and Rasika Borkar. The finale was graced by celebrities like Anushka Sharma who came to promote her upcoming film, Phillauri. Krystle Dsouza, Mika Singh, Kumar Sanu and Asha Bhosale added more jazz to the proceedings. The Voice India's USP is the fact that original voices get the maximum encouragement from judges.
An overjoyed Farhan said, “I am honestly speechless right now and the feeling of winning the show is still sinking in. I will most certainly cherish this moment and work harder to find myself a place in the music industry. &TV and The Voice India has not only given me an opportunity to showcase my talent but given me a platform to learn from the best in the industry. I would like to thank Shaan sir who has been more than a mentor to me in this journey. Also, I would very humbly like to thank the audience for believing in me and my talent. Without their support I don’t think I would have come this far and celebrating this victory.”
A resident of Laxmi Nagar, New Delhi, Farhan is influenced by classical singing and plays Tabla. Since his father suffered from brain tumor, he left his studies post 10th standard and works in a café to support his family financially. His journey in The Voice India – Season 2 has been commendable. There is no stopping Farhan, a disciplined and dedicated contestant, from making it big in the music industry.
Coach Shaan added, “Farhan’s journey on The Voice has been phenomenal. It feels so good to be a part of such a platform on &TV that encourages talent of such caliber. The Voice India has been a learning ground for me as well and I am going back with a lot of memories which will be treasured. Having said that, my role as a coach is not over yet. I am more than happy to welcome each and every participant who wants to learn and jam with like-minded musicians.”
An over joyous Farhan Sabir received a cheque of Rs. 25,00,000/- from &TV and was awarded with a sparkling Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 with Automatic Gear Shift. The Top 4 finalists Niyam Kanungo, Parakhjeet Singh, Rasika Borkar and Farhan Sabir received a gift hamper from Alto and handsets from Vivo Camera and Music as well. Mohd. Danish won the title of ‘Yamaha Fascino Most Stylish Singer Award’ along with a super stylish Yamaha Fascino bike.
In the finale, Prakharjeet sang the number Kala Chashma from Baar Baar Dekho. His peppy act had the judges impressed. Niyam Kanungo who had tried for the show earlier too sang Alvida. The singer's soulful rendition left Asha Bhosale impressed. Farhan Sabir, who has been impressive all through the season sang Jugni in his robust and earthy voice. And Rasika sang Hungama Ho Gaya and sent the crowd in raptures. The voting lines opened and everything rested in the viewer's hands.
