They say talent has no age. You could be a 3 year old toddler and still be astonishingly talented. Just like last season where little Angshuman Nandi proved his talent at the young age of three, this year too we have a child prodigy in Sai Jamshed. 13-year old Sai is a pianist and in his audition, he completely floored the judges with a flawless performance. So impressed were our trio of judges that they decided to award him with a Golden Buzzer! We got in touch with this child genius and asked him about his journey to the IGT stage. Have a look.
Q. When did you begin your training?
A. I always had an interest in singing and my teacher kind of suggested that I should take up schooling in music. This happened in 2011 and I was 10-years old then and that is where my journey in music began.
Q. You come from a school of A R Rehman, does that add pressure on you?
A. Nothing like that. There are 400 other children studying in the same school and it is just like a regular institution. But yes, definitely we’re exposed to more opportunities and that is an advantage.
Q. Achieving fame and glory at such a young age, does it affect you in anyway?
A. Actually it doesn’t bother me. My main focus is solely on my performance be it on stage, in front of a live audience or even in my own personal space like my room.
Q. How was the experience of auditioning in IGT?
A. I totally enjoyed it. In such situations I usually don’t get nervous but rather feel excited. Same thing happened when I was auditioning in IGT in front of the judges.
Q. Did you expect the Golden Buzzer?
A. The Golden Buzzer moment completely took me by surprise. I was elated and naturally my mother was proud to see me being praised.
