How has your journey of India’s Raw Star (IRS) been so far?
It has been a fabulous journey. Not even in my dreams I had thought that I will reach till top four. India’s Raw Star has given me things that I could have never achieved otherwise. It was an amazing phase of my life. The first time when I met Honey Singh when he had come to Jaipur back then to announce that I was the lucky one who got selected for India’s Raw Star. From that time till today, I have cherished each moment spent here. People wait just to get a glimpse of Honey Singh and here with me, I shared a relation just like a brother. This is something that I will never forget. We share a very deep relation and actually connect heart-to-heart. When I sit back and think, I wonder where was I an ordinary man and where destiny has brought me today. I am so thankful to God and IRS. It is just a dream come true.
How has this show help you flourish your singing skills?
I never accept myself as a singer. I loved being called a performer because I love performing. Be it performing for a college program or in any of the bands. And the mentors here that I came across in India’s Raw Star like Akash sir, Nagen sir, Aditya sir et al have helped me so much to improve my singing skills. All of them have trained me so well that, that can be seen through my performance.
How has India’s Raw Star helped you change your identity?
I would say India’s Raw Star has been the best phase of my life. Earlier I used to deliberately go out and find a stage to perform and now this is the time when people have started noticing me, getting inspired by me. Today, people call me to come and perform for their function. That feeling is just different. I feel God has been so graceful to me. It is no less than an achievement in my life. Through IRS, I have got a chance to connect with people.
Any certain incident that you will cherish forever
During the second episode, Priyanka Chopra had come on the sets for some promotion. Back then, she asked me to sing a song for her and she wanted to hear it like just another person from the audience. Honey Singh and Priyanka Chopra actually stepped down and stood amid the audience while I was singing. Priyanka is my all time favorite actress and standing and singing in front of her was just like a dream to me. I will never forget that moment.
We wishes Mohit all the good luck for his future!
