Aman wins hearts


Bhubaneswar: Aman wins the heart of people, when His soul-stirring performance garnered the votes of the country, including that of the judges, and catapulted his score to a whopping 91%.

Odisha’s Aman Biswal stormed into Top 13 of popular reality show Rising Star India aired on Colors TV, last night, by polling in highest percentage of votes. Despite choking in the middle of his performance, the 12-year-old from Bhubaneswar beat the meek 53% score of Hoshiyar Brijwasi, to secure a spot for himself in the next level of the competition. The episode, which was a tribute to the first female superstar of Bollywood, Sridevi, had singer Alka Yagnik as a guest judge. Every contestant sang a song remembering the exemplary actor of Bollywood.


Aman crooned to ‘Surmayee Akhiyon Mein’, the Yesudas lullaby from Sridevi’s iconic movie Sadma. As was the case in his previous performances, Aman last night choked during his performance after surpassing the 53% cut-off. He had been doing breathing exercises and drinking sufficient water to overcome it. However, it did not deter the entire nation from voting for him.
