Palak Muchhal reveals how Salman Khan helped her in Bollywood
Newest addition to The Voice India Kids, singer Palak Muchhal on how Khan helped her pave her way in B-Town
What about the show, The Voice India Kids attracted you the most?
It's a strong brand with a unique concept. The coaching panel comprises legendary musicians. Sharing the platform with them is an honour.
Was it difficult for you to break into B-Town?
I didn't have any connections in Bollywood. The first person I met in Mumbai was Salman [Khan] sir. He assured me that I'd be singing for his films. When the song Laapata (Ek Tha Tiger, 2012) released, multiple offers started coming my way.
So, do you consider Salman Khan your godfather?
He is my guiding angel and godfather. He gave me a chance to sing for his films and guided me along the way. After my parents, I go to him for advice.
Your voice is often confused with that of Shreya Ghoshal. How do you react to that?
It's a compliment. But, I find it unfair for Shreyaji. She has been in the industry for almost 10 years. It's unfair to compare a junior like me to her.
Tell us about your upcoming projects.
I've recorded 218 songs for films. They are lined up for release. I'm also working on a single.
