Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs aired its final episode on October 12. Kerela girl Aryananda Babu was crowned as the winner of the season. The talented Li’l Champ took home the coveted trophy and a cash prize of Rs 5 lakh as the winning amount. Post her victory the little singer joined us for an interview and here's what all she had to say about her victory;
What will you do with the winning amount (5 lakhs)?
We are currently staying in a rented house. So I am planning to buy our own house with the price money.
Despite not being well-versed with Hindi, you won. How does it feel?
I never thought that I would be winning this show. Because I was the only contestant from South India and I didn't know the language. But now I am extremely happy because Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs has proved that music is universal and there are no limitations to it.
Will you be taking up music as your career now?
I consider this award as a promising encouragement to push me to music as my career. Now I want to sing as much as I can in all languages possible. I wish to grow up and become one of the best singers in the world.
Who will you miss the most from the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa team?
It was an amazing journey. I miss all my friends, judges and Manish Paul bhaiya. Each of them has been very supportive and helpful to me.
How are your parents feeling with this victory? Any special preparation to welcome you with a trophy?
My family is celebrating this victory more than me. The celebration would have been on a different level if this coronavirus would have not been there. My parents are very happy and proud of me.
What next now?
I connect myself more with music than anything else. So music has been and will be my life ahead.
Your journey has been long to reach here. Share some details...
I have been singing songs from a very young age and as long as I got an opportunity to sing I kept going on every platform. In my house, small gatherings and big stages like Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs.
If not you, then who could have won this trophy?
Honestly, all the finalists were winners for me. As we all won millions of hearts as people watched us around the world.
