"I am not a brand-conscious person. I am not into
designing, but the designer who makes clothes for me, Joe
Noorani, will do the wedding trousseau as well. Also, I
have left everything to my mom. Whatever she buys for me,
I am ok with that. She has already bought about 18 dresses,"
She is excited about her wedding and at the same time the
singer is looking forward to judging the sixth season of
"Indian Idol" and is currently busy taking auditions
across India, including cities like Delhi, Lucknow, Ahmedabad,
Rajkot, Aurangabad and Mumbai.
Asked what kind of singers Bollywood needs, she said "versatility"
is all that filmmakers and music directors look for.
"Bollywood always needs versatile singers, a person
who can sing anything under the sun. It's very important
because if a music director likes a certain voice, he wants
the singer to sing every kind of song - from soft ones to
peppy numbers," she said.
"And this is what I am trying to do even after spending
17 years in the music industry. I am just trying to break
the notion that Sunidhi is made for fast numbers. I had
to actually think beyond and slow down," she said.
She is the winner of the singing reality show "Meri
Aawaz Suno". She won it in 1996, but feels the definition
of reality show has changed now.
"'Meri Aawaz Suno' was a musical show that was pure.
There was neither a voting system nor an elimination round.
It was the panel of judges who used to decide who is a better
singer. So, I would say it was a rather tough and proper
"Now a lot depends on voting. As a result, at times,
good singers get eliminated while average singers win the
show," said Sunidhi, who will be next heard in movies
like "Joker" and "Vicky Donor"
