Himesh and Atif at loggerheads
Superstars Himesh Reshammiya and Atif Aslam who had been in loggerheads throughout the season of COLORS' singing reality show Sur Kshetra took their rivalry into the Grand Finale to epic heights. Their battles created the atmosphere of a live Indo-Pak cricket match.
Himesh kept on reinforcing his belief that Diljaan was the ideal contender to win the show, according to him, "Agar Sur ki baat ki jaye toh Diljaan ka koi muqabla nahi". Adding further he said, "I know that I have been labelled aggressive in the show but the intent for my aggression was only for the betterment of the participants. I believe anything done for a good cause is justified."
When asked if his aggression put a lot of pressure on the participants Himesh replied, "At such a large stage there is bound to be pressure, but I believe that there is a lot more pressure on the jury than on the contestants as now it is upto the jury to decide who is the most deserving winner. I wish the jury as well as the contestants all the best"
Atif on the other hand strongly objected to this and has his own favourite in Nabeel saying he was more versatile. Atif said, "It makes me very happy when I hear that I am as aggressive as Himesh is, I take it as a compliment. After being a part of the show I now realize the reason behind Himesh's aggression; I understand that it is his sincerity and the effort that he takes for the show which makes him aggressive. Although I have had a lot of fights in the show I still believe I am the laadla on the sets."
It seems that the singers are as emotional about their motherlands as they are attached to their passion of music. Well all we can say is all is fair in love and war and in Sur Kshetra there is both, love for music and war for the coveted trophy.
