'Indian Idol' Punjabi boy wants to sing for Sunny Deol
Vipul Mehta sang his way to the top during the final episode of Indian Idol Season 6. With this win, he is looking forward to some playback singing and composing.

AFTER MANY eliminations, many heartbreaks of friends leaving the show and secret triumphs of making it through, on September 1, Vipul Mehta was finally crowned the Indian Idol. Along with the title, he was awarded 50 lakh rupees from Sony channel, a Nissan Micra car, a Suzuki Hayate bike, Rs. 3 lakh from Max Life Insurance and a contract to record his own music album.

It was a dream come true for 22-year-old youth from Amritsar, Punjab. But for judges, it wasn't an easy decision for judges to make as there were other strong contenders like Amit Kumar and Devendra Pal who were equally loved ny the audience. Though they had their own genre but what stood out most in Mehta was his ability to carry on with any song with perfect ease and versatility.

Coming from a business background, family is Mehta's biggest support and he was never forced to join the business and therefore, could concentrate on his singing. He said, “My family saw my love and dedication towards music. They encouraged me and never forced me to join the family business. That is how I have reached till here. Support of your family is very important to achieve your goal.”

The mass communication graduate started learning classical singing from the age of eight and like other people who know what they want to be when they grow up, Mehta also knew that singing would be an integral part of his life. He participated in the Voice Of India in 2008 but was not able to make it to the top 3. However, his perseverance paid off this time.

For his future, he sees himself singing for his favourite star Sunny Deol and also composing. As for the prize money, he would like to donate some to charity and buy a car. Punjab Revenue and Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia felicitated Mehta for winning the title and said that in a country where many budding talents were contesting for the same, it was not easy to win.
