Atlanta’s Supriya Shridharan Advances To Mumbai Audition On Sa Re Ga Ma Pa

On May 28, 2010, Supriya Shridharan, an Atlanta singer with dreams of hitting the big time, will get her big break, advancing to the next round of auditions for Zee TV’s hit singing competition, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, and moving one step closer to Bollywood. The 20-year-old singer says she has devoted countless hours training and preparing for this moment and plans on wowing the judges with the best performance of her life.

“Supriya epitomizes the budding talent of our South Asian youth in the United States,” says Subroto Bhattacharya, Zee TV’s Territory Head for the Americas. “By bringing Supriya to India’s entertainment capital, we hope to cultivate a deeper appreciation, respect and understanding for music, cinema, arts and theater among the South Asian community in the United States.” 

The budding star sang the title song from “Hum Dil De Chukhe Sanam”, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s song “Sanware” and other popular Bollywood songs for her video audition and impressed Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’s producers, who all voted to send her to Mumbai for the next round of auditions. “I’ve been singing from the moment I learned to speak…in the shower, in musical choirs, in school, and wherever I could…now I’m ready to punch my ticket to Bollywood and make my dreams come true,” gushes the aspiring singer.

Zee TV’s Subroto Bhattacharya continues, “We have seen many auditions from U.S. contestants, and this, by far, was the best vocals yet. Supriya has that ‘it’ quality that defines a star in the making…she’s the real deal.”
Known for skyrocketing singers like Shreya Goshal to chart-topping success and fame, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa first aired in May 1995 and was hosted by Sonu Nigam, one of Bollywood’s most sought-after playback singers.
