Abhijeet SawantYou join politics! And that’s what India’s first Indian Idol Abhijeet Sawant has done. Sawant has joined Shiv Sena.

Abhijeet Sawant suddenly shot to fame when he won the first season of Sony Tv’s show Indian Idol. We were never too fond of him. He became gaurav of Marathi Manoos. But then everything went wrong. His albums flopped, accused of plagiarism, got bad reviews.

He moved to reality shows. Tried shaking his legs. No more luck there. Someone saw an actor in him and decided to gamble his money with Lottery. Have you even heard of it ? Obviously the film sank without any trace.

With nothing more to do, Abhijeet has joined politics just before the Maharashtra Assembly Elections. Shiv Sena’s Executive President Uddhav Thackeray made the announcement and welcomed Sawant in the party. With Shiv Sena facing tough competition from MNS, Sawant’s singing will surely manage some crowd at the rallies. Votes ? We aren’t sure.

If Pritam is here, can plagiarism be far behind! Or may be, its just his bad luck. Some sound somewhere always sounds similar! Check out this song.

Sounds familiar ? Saudagar. Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Anupam Kher. Tring tring. Deewane tere naam ke!

Now, check out Love Aaj Kal’s Aahun Aahun, the intial hook.

The good news. In the CD, the credit reads  kadi te hass bol ve. Lyrics & melody – traditional.

And after lil youtubing, we discovered this one – one of the traditional punjabi folk version. 

Finally, some sanity in Pritam’s world!
