Shaan Bhattacharya is hopeful winning the Tarana Idol competition will lead to bigger things for him as far as singing is concerned.
The Auckland chief strategist beat 11 other contestants to clinch the 2019 title in the intense live on-air competition which drew audiences from all over the world.
Bhattacharya, who has been living in Auckland with wife Ipshita for just over two years, attributes his win to his elder sister, Swatilekha, who has been coach and mentor.
“My sister has been a great influence on my singing,” Bhattacharya told Radio Tarana this week.
Following the exposure from the Tarana Idol competition, he hopes to get more singing gigs oin stage in Auckland, alongside other greats.
“It has been a phenomenal experience, and also a great learning experience,” said Bhattacharya, who won $1000 for his efforts.
The Tarana Idol, organised by Radio Tarana, has been running for the past 10 years, giving exposure to local talent.
