Back in 2002, Sanjay Leela Bhansali introduced a fresh voice — Shreya Ghoshal in Devdas. Now, the master filmmaker is giving an opportunity to introduce Nirmitee, which is one of the groups participating in the music reality show, X Factor on Sony. At the moment, they are among the top four on the show and are mentored by singers Sonu Niigaam, Shreya and filmmaker Bhansali.
Now, Bhansali is set to rope in the Nirmitee group for a special performance in his forthcoming movie, My Friend Pinto, starring Kalki Koechlin, Prateik and Shruti Seth. Music director Shamir Tandon of Traffic Signal (2007) and Page 3 (2005) fame is composing the music.
Sources say Bhansali is happy to have roped them in and feels the group has a lot of potential. So much so that the maverick director gets overwhelmed every time the group performs on X Factor.<
