Shilpa Shetty Kundra applauds Farhan Sabir’s remarkable act on ‘India’s Got Talent,’ Drawing comparisons to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
As a judge on ‘India’s Got Talent,’ Shilpa Shetty Kundra showered effusive praise upon the performance by Farhan Sabir Live, who delivered a mesmerizing rendition of ‘Piya Re Piya Re.’ In her commendation, she drew striking parallels to the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab.
In a recent Sunday episode, the talent reality show celebrated the auspicious festival of Janmashtami, graced by the presence of devotional singer Anup Jalota.
The ‘Top 14’ contestants showcased their extraordinary talents, aiming to leave not only special guest Anup Jalota but also the judges—Shilpa, Badshah, and Kirron Kher—thoroughly impressed.
Among the exceptional performances, Farhan Sabir Live, hailing from Delhi, left the audience spellbound with their divine interpretation of ‘Piya Re Piya Re’ by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Their rendition not only touched hearts but also garnered a standing ovation from the esteemed panel of judges.
Adding a personal touch to his vocal prowess, Farhan shared that his family holds a profound admiration for Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the renowned Qawwali maestro.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra expressed her admiration by saying, “This is one of your finest performances. Today, you reminded me of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab. If you close your eyes and listen to this rendition once again, it’s reminiscent of that kind of magical experience that Nusrat Sahab created.”
Equally impressed, Badshah remarked, “Your voice is truly a gift, and I can see the dedication you’ve invested in nurturing it. You stand among the finest singers in the country today. When I say ‘one of the finest,’ I dare to compare you to the likes of Sukhwinder Singh, Salim Merchant, and Shankar Sir, in that league.”
