“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” wrote Paulo Coelho. Kapil Sharma, who rose from a humble family in Punjab to make a mark as a comedian (well, he’s been winning almost every show for the last few seasons) is a firm believer in this. In Chandigarh on Thursday, garnering support for Star Ya Rockstar (he has made it to the finale), Kapil shares the funny as well as serious side of his life.
“I always wanted to be a singer,” says Kapil, who did theatre, comedy and is now finally living his dream of becoming a singer in Zee TV’s Star Ya
Rockstar. “By God’s grace, I got the audiences’ love as a comedian; when I stepped into this show I had a belief that I will make to the finals as well,” says
Kapil, who is looking for audiences’ votes to win the competition.

Song of tradition
It's that time of the year when winter winds are picking up and we are eagerly awaiting the festival season ahead (read Lodhi and Baisakhi). And what better time than this to release an album titled Rut Teohaaran Dee, where Minu Bakshi and Lakhwinder Wadali have given a voice to the rich folk traditions of Punjab.
Says Minu Bakshi, "This album celebrates the culture and tradition of Punjab, which is losing its identity with each passing day. The folk songs have been recorded in a new style, but the sanctity of traditions has been maintained."
