In a groundbreaking collaboration, the contestants of the singing reality show, ‘Indian Idol 14’ were offered an opportunity to lend their unique voices to the iconic song, ‘Vande Mataram’ (The Fighter Anthem) from the film ‘Fighter’.

These talented individuals have not only showcased their vocal prowess on the stage but have now stepped into the realm of playback singing for a blockbuster movie like ‘Fighter’.”

“We (Vishal – Shekhar) believe that their passion, dedication, and raw talent were evident throughout the competition, and now, they have what it takes to captivate audiences on the big screen. This opportunity not only validates their hard work but also signifies a remarkable milestone in their musical journey,” he further shared.

Speaking about this opportunity, contestant Vaibhav said, “I am hugely grateful to receive such an opportunity from Vishal – Shekhar sir, for having faith in us and allowing us to be a part of Vande Mataram, The Fighter Anthem. It all started when we performed ‘Sujalam Sufalam’ for the grand entry of Hrithik Roshan Sir, who graced our show to promote the film.”

“He liked the performance and expressed his wish as a request to Vishal Sir to get us to perform in the film. This is how we landed our biggest project to sing for Vishal – Shekhar Sir, who called us to the studio to record the most anticipated song of 2024,” he added.
