Versatility not necessarily important, says singer Palak Muchhal

Muchhal will be seen as a coach on upcoming children singing reality show The Voice India Kids Season 2.


Popular singer Palak Muchhal, who will be seen as a coach on upcoming children singing reality show The Voice India Kids Season 2, says she prefers to celebrate the originality of a voice rather than proving its versatility.

Muchhal has sung songs for films like Sanam Re (2016), Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015), Gabbar Is Back (2015), Rustom (2016), and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017), among others.

"As a coach, I don't want to remove the unique quality of one's voice, rather polish it and nurtures it. I know, we should encourage versatility, but not at the cost of ruining the originality. I think versatility is not necessarily important," Muchhal said on Monday, 30 October, at the launch of the &TV show.

"If a singer is good in a particular genre, it is better to explore and excel in that style of singing to become a master of that style. Right now, in my team, different kids have different elements in voice and as a coach, it is very interesting for me," she added.

Muchhal says The Voice India Kids Season 2 is not putting any pressure on the young contestants.

"Our format of the show is very different and instead of putting pressure of competition I am rather spending time with kids to understand their talent and grooming for their voice betterment. All the kids in my team have come to my house and we have gone out for lunch and all…unless they are comfortable and opening up, they will not be able to induce the knowledge. I am very concern about that," she said.

"I think as long as their study is not hampered, getting expert training from professional would only help them to get familiar with the professional singing. I totally encourage it," she added.

Muchhal feels it's easy to become a singer now.

"When we are talking about changing time in our music industry, it is good that the monopoly has broken; it is not like earlier when only legends like Lata ji(Mangeshkar) and Asha ji (Bhosle) singing. Now, getting into the industry is easier. So, if you have good voice, which stands out, you can stand out here in the music scene," she said.
