| Published on October 29, 2019

Anand Mahindra is all praises about an Indian Idol contestant and his Diwali is already made!

Indian Idol 11 contestant Sunny who hails from Bathinda recently left Anand Mahindra awestruck with his talent so much that the business tycoon tweeted a clip of him with all praises. 

Sunny works as a shoeshiner while his mother sells balloons to earn a living. Life wasn’t easy for this supremely talented singer who faced a lot of hardships after the demise of his father before making it to the stage of Indian Idol 11.

Besides winning the hearts of the judges – Neha Kakkar, Vishal Dadlani and Anu Malik, Sunny’s journey touched the hearts of many including Mahindra chairman Anand Mahindra.

Mahindra sharing a clip of Sunny from Indian Idol 11 tweeted, “Diwali is the perfect day to learn about people who Rise. A friend sent me this saying he was in tears watching it. Find the whole clip on YouTube & I challenge you to remain dry-eyed. TV & social media have done us a great service: Discovering talent in the humblest locations.”


Vishal Dadlani who is one of the judges of the singing reality show instantly took notice of the tweet and thanked Mahindra for acknowledging Sunny’s talent and also invited him to a guest on the show.

Vishal Dadlani tweeted, “So glad you noticed Sunny, @anandmahindra Sir. Do watch the upcoming episodes. All our singers on #IndianIdol11 have the potential to inspire kids in every corner and every economic level in India. We’d be honoured if you visit our set & chat with the kids, whenever you like! (sic)”

Sunny’s performance was indeed a show stealer as he sang Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Afreen Afreen.
