He said, “I and Ashish da have planned to come together to compose music. We are working on songs and after I return from my hometown we will start working on our music and start pitching it to some good banners. Also, we plan to bring out a single and also compose for films.”

when asked about an actor that he would like to give playback for, he said, “We have such wonderful actors in our industry and I will be honoured to sing for them. But if you ask one particular artiste it will be Salman Khan. Because working for him is like a dream and he such a wonderful person.”

Pawandeep who is known for his smile, shared, “I do smile and I feel that I am smiling but logo ko pata nahin chalta hai. Main khush hi rehta hoon hamesha.”

Talking about the havoc caused in Uttarakhand because of the rain, the singer said, “After the finale, I will be going back home and see what is going on and will try and understand what can be done. I will meet the people and discuss what is happening. The people of my state have supported me so main definitely unka saath dunga.”

Pawandeep also revealed about the contracts being offered to the promising contestants. He said “Of course, the promises have been kept and all that was promised is happening. It is like a dream as we come from a village and Indian Idol is one platform where promises made are kept. We have already worked with Himesh Reshammiya, Dharma Productions has told us and will be calling for song recording soon. I am so happy that such super movement is happening in my life. I had only dreamed about it and sometimes I doubt whether it is really happening to me.”

Giving advice to aspiring talent on reality shows Pawandeep said, “Just don’t be scared. We all have the right to dream. But to fulfill that dream a lot of hard work is needed. You have to enjoy the entire process and not crib. I am an example of that. In the olden days, there used to be a struggle which is not there. We have a short cut and there are platforms like Indian Idol which has given us a platform to showcase our talent and give us a chance to meet legends in person and get spotted by them and so many offers that have come to me so quickly is because of Indian Idol.”

Talking about the gap of five years between his earlier reality show and Indian Idol Pawandeep said, “I have always been a learner and will continue to be one. I was just 18 years old. It takes time to learn. Especially when you’re an 18 year old kid that too from a village. That phase only gave me time to learn how to sing and learn music and also how to behave and deal with people. And after that I decided I have to go to Indian Idol. But when I came for the audition, I was really scared as such fantastic singers were there and Sawai sang just before I went up on stage. I was worried and thought to myself that I don’t think I will get selected but bhagwan ki duwa se mera bhi theek thak ho gaya.”

When asked about the time he contracted Covid and was he scared at that time, he said, “I was not scared at all. The whole world is facing the same problem and therefore one need not get scared. If you get scared the disease affects you even more. I was prepared it can happen to me. It was tough but I had my music and did rest a lot.”
