Singer Geet Sagar, who was mentored by noted playback singer Shreya Goshal, has become the winner of the first season of singing reality show X-Factor India. The 27-year-old Gwalior boy pocket the coveted title beating Seema Jha from Sonu Nigam's team and Sajda sisters from filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's team.
Talking to the PTI, Geet Sagar said, "I am blank. I am still pinching myself...as I can't believe I have won. I feel hard work and luck both play equal role in your life. The journey has been adventurous and learning. I believe the reality show provided me a platform to show and enhance my singing besides giving me an identity."
Geet Sagar wants to perform live on stage and interact with the audience. "In India there is the bad thing that if you sing in films then only you are considered as a good singer. I want to be a good singer and I believe this is not the only criteria. I feel even doing live shows performing on stage interacting with the audience is important," Geet told the PTI.
However, Shreya Goshal, Sonu Nigam and Sanjay Leela Bhansali were the judges for the first season of the Indian version of the reality show X-Factor. Geet Sagar bagged the title by securing maximum public votes. He pocketed Rs 50 lakh and a Tata Manza car as a part of his award.
