Rising Star is the first ever live singing reality show where the contestants woo the audiences with their singing and get immediate feedback in form of votes from them (audience) through an app designed especially for the show.Actor Anil Kapoor was the special guest for the grand finale. He launched the DVD for his blockbuster espionage drama 24: Season 2.
Singer Bannet Dosanjh has emerged as the winner of India’s first live singing reality show Rising Star by defeating other finalist, Maithili Thakur by just two votes.
“Rising Star winner Bannet Dosanjh counts Diljit Dosanjh as his mentor and wants to sing for Shah Rukh Khan; And he fervently hopes his songs are picturised on Shraddha Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez”
Besides the winning trophy, the singer has earned a contract with Mahesh Bhatt’s Vishesh Films that will give him a chance to playback in their next movie. Working for Vishesh Films is a golden opportunity for young Bannet. “All I am thinking about this is that I will have to work a lot on my singing. There are people who have expectations of me. I wish I can uphold the honour of this win and through my singing, I can express myself to a larger audience,” he said.
