Hemant Brijwasi managed to win Rising Star 2 as he got 83 % votes from the audience and also received the prize of 20 lacs. Interestingly, Hemant was also the winner of Sa Re Ga Ma little champs 9 years ago. He has been competing in singing reality shows for a really long time and has spent half his life auditioning for different channels though still does not have a song in any film whatsoever. As a little champ he was highly celebrated and all the judges were extremely fond of him for his extraordinary talent of singing.
Reality show culture in the country started in the 90’s and has benefited a lot of talented people to have their fair share of limelight for a time being but never really peaked a career to glory. At all times there are at least 5 different singing reality shows only in Hindi language are going on in this country but it does not mean that they will end up having a career in playback singing. Film music market covers up to 90% of music industry in India hence if you have not made it up there than one might end up struggling a whole lot.
Hemant has also participated in India’s got talent but he still had to come on a reality show in order to get some singing work going in his life. Abhijeet Sawant was the first most prevalent singing reality show in India of Indian Idol but today eh is not exactly in the picture considering the fact that he was so incredibly hyped for a reality show contestant. No other reality show winner would be as talked about as him and they are not which is why Hindi film composers who serve as judges on this show don’t exactly end up signing the talent they praise for months on a public platform.
