A singer might be proficient at Sufi, rock, pop or jazz, but a music director can make him or her sing songs of every genre, feel composer duo Sajid-Wajid, who are set to judge Zee TV's reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar.
"It is up to a composer to bring the best in a singer. But yes, the capability to sing has to be there. No one ever thought Sukhwinder (Singh), who is known for his Sufi or mastana (jolly) kind of songs, could sing a romantic number like Haule haule? But it was the composers who saw him with that eye," Wajid told IANS.
"We had composed a ghazal and we made KK sing it. He doesn't sing ghazals, but we felt he was perfect for it. We practised rigorously and it came out beautifully. Unfortunately, the film wasn't released. That's what we will do on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa - try to bring out the best in each contestant and then groom them," he added.
The duo, who have composed songs for films like Veer and Wanted, is on the lookout for versatile playback singers on the show, but they want to first groom them and point out their strengths and weaknesses.
"We want singers whose basic structure and foundation of singing is right because such talent can be groomed. Once we know their strengths, we can show them the right way. But essentially we are looking for a good and versatile playback singer which is hard to find," said Wajid.
His brother Sajid said: "We are not looking at meeting star singers on the show. We will make them stars during the course of the show. We will give them right feedback and help them recognise their weak points and work towards improving it."
