The heartthrob of many in India and also in Nepal, Prashant Tamang, who succeeded in becoming Indian Idol III on September 24, has flown in to Kathmandu this Friday afternoon, from the Indian capital of New Delhi.
Prashant is now all set to enthrall his fans in Kathmandu and Pokhara, revealed a press conference held at Hotel Soaltee Crowne Plaza on September 28.
Organized by Springwood, a new outfit for men introduced by Surya Nepal, Prashant will be performing live at the St Xavier’s Ground at Jawalakhel on Saturday afternoon and at the Exhibition Ground in Pokhara on Sunday. Accompanying him at the concert are our very own pop icon Nima Rumba, the drummer-cum-vocalist of 1974 AD Adrian Pradhan and Prashant’s two fellow contenders of the reality show, Deepali and Ankita.
Along with the royal treatment offered by the organizers, even the journalists present at the conference were no less yearning to get a quick glimpse of him and to share few words with this boy from the hills of Darjeeling. Some even put forward their highly elaborated question putting him in dismay. Despite the organizers continuously requesting the media persons to take their seats, they were so enthralled to see Prashant that none of them bothered to listen to the appeal.
Prashant shared a few words, “I’m so thrilled to see so much of love and support. Becoming an Indian Idol is still like a dream come true. At times, I still find it hard to believe that I eventually prevailed. It’s all because of you and your prayers. I don’t have any words to express how happy I am.”
At the same time, Adrian Pradhan quickly beamed, “To be very honest, it’s good to see young talents emerging into the field of music. Nonetheless, I wish if people in Nepal would also do something to promote Nepali artiste. I understand that our market is very small, but it wouldn’t expand until and unless someone dares to take the initiative.”
Now there is more to see than to read. Catch the new Indian Idol performing live with Nima Rumba, Adrian Pradhan, Deepali and Ankita at the St Xavier’s Ground today.
