Filmmaker Omung Kumar is quite impressed with Indian Idol 12 contestant Shanmukhapriya’s performance and has also asked her to sing for his film. Omung, who was a special guest on the latest episode, praised Shanmukhapriya, saying that he liked her style and admired her talent. Following this, he also drew a sketch for her as a gift.

After Shanmukhapriya sang Jimmy Jimmy Aaja Aaja and Super Dancer Aaye Hai, Omung Kumar said, “I like your style and admire your talent which is why I want to collaborate with you for a whole film and not just one song. If the film never sees the light of the day, I will take your songs and make the film because that is how fabulous a singer you are. I am glad to have heard you live and I hope that I can give you a nice and beautiful song to sing in the future.”

He then proceeded to draw a sketch of Shanmukhapriya in less than five minutes and presented it as a gift to her. Thrilled Shanmukhapriya expressed her joy in a statement, “I am overwhelmed and all kinds of happy with Omung Kumar Sir’s compliments. The fact that he wants to collaborate with me in the future is a big deal. ”

Calling him a ‘humble and talented’ personality, she said, “Not only this, I also feel honoured that he drew a sketch for me in less than five minutes. It was really great meeting such a humble yet talented personality on the show. I feel emotional about love and affection I receive for my work and it inspires me to never settle and work even harder towards achieving my goals.”

This weekend, the Top 6 Indian Idol contestants will welcome singer Bappi Lahiri, and see Omung Kumar as a guest. Indian Idol airs on Sony TV at 9:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
