NEHLE PE Kalpana DEHLA
In a country with over a billion people, countless languages and multitude of musical influences, it takes special talent to stand out from the crowd as an entertainer. Luckily talent is what Bhojpuri singer Kalpana has sacks full of.
One of the most popular Bhojpuri singers in India right now, Kalpana came to attention in 2002 with her breakout hit album, Gawan wa leja Rajaji. Since then she has become a household name having performed on over 150 Bhojpuri film soundtracks, 100 Hindi film songs sung ,recorded more than 400 radio and television jingles and presented Sur Sangram’s season 1 & 2 and other TV shows.
Kalpana has been finalized as the judge for the upcoming show NEHLE PE DEHLA– “ Nanhe Suron Ka Maha Sangraam”.‘Let’s get innocent hearts closer’ the show will bring together raw talented kids from all over UP & Bihar. The participants will be in the 8-13 years age group. NEHLE PE DEHLA is a musical forum and opportunity for budding talent for children from UP & Bihar. Says Kalpana, Mahua channel came up with this unique concept, something different – a show that will have kids from all over UP & Bihar teaming up in a singing reality show where boys competing with girls. The girl’s team is boosted by Kalpana whereas the boy’s team is goofed by Pawan Singh.
Kalpana says, of course all the children are same for me, whoever sings well, performs well, will win. But as for me on a personal note, I support the girls for being participants, because when I entered the Bhojpuri industry, girl singers were not seen with very good eyes. Achhe Ghar Ki Ladkiya Nahi Gati Hai –the so called society believed it. I entered the industry with bhajans, modern songs and even hot item numbers – but proved that it is only professional matter. Singing can also be a career for girls. The scenario has changed and I am the lucky one to set a trend.
Kalpana is an amazing mentors and she has personally handpicked every contestants by indoor and outdoor selection rounds in Patna, Lucknow, Banaras and other places.
At present she is busy with her world music project on The Shakespeare of Bhojpuri Literature "The Legacy of Bhikhari Thakur" trying to relive the country’s long-forgotten treasure of Bhojpuri folk music.
