Kumar Sanu Junior makes to the semi finals of ‘Rin Mera Star Superstar’

MUMBAI: Looks like there’s another Kumar Sanu in the making as Star Plus show “Rin Mera Star Superstar” gets Jaan Sanu (Kumar Sanu’s son) entering the semi-final rounds of the show on December 8, 2006 at 7:30 pm on Star Plus.

On asking show jury- Sachin Pilgoankar what he has to say about this; he adds, “ Jaan has definitely got ‘sur’ and ‘taal’ as a genetic gift from his father but what I admire about him is that he is using this gift to the best of his advantage and trying to get ahead in life on his own effort.”

But has he reached this far on own merit or are the judges partial to him because of his father’s celebrity status?? Judge Sachin comments “Both Farida Jalal and I are judges on this show and we are not here to create biases and favoritism among contestants.

We have chosen those contestants who we felt have immense talent and Jaan is one amongst them. We have definitely not chosen Jaan in the semi-finals because of his father. On this show, contestants have to create and use their own identity to come ahead and not their parents”

Jaan, whose magical performance moved the judges, feels it is unfair that people believe that he has got selected for the semi-finals because of his father. In his defense, he says, “I have worked hard to come so far in the show and I am struggling just like any other contestants to win this title.

My name is attached with my father Kumar Sanu’s name but I don’t want to get ahead in life using his name, I am here to create an identity of my own and so no where in the show have I used my fathers name. I have given my best performance and that’s why I have got selected.”

Jaan, whose last performance won him accolades from celebrity guest Pooja Bhatt will now be in the semi-finals competing with contestants- Santosh Kapdi (14) and Ashwini Shukla (11) from Mumbai, and 7 other contestants from Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur. ….

Will Jaan manage to beat his competitors and woo the audience and the judges once again by recreating the same magic in the semi-finals? To know watch out for the semi-finals of 'Rin Mera Star Superstar' on Friday, December 8th 7.30 pm only on Star Plus!
