"I had to convince Sawai to stay back. The channel has assured him that his parents can come to Mumbai and stay with him. This way, he can be with them as well as continue with his singing journey in the show," Himesh Reshammiya told TOI.

Sawai has been singing consistently well on the show. He has the potential to be the next Indian Idol. With his raw talent and the right songs, he can achieve a lot in his career. Sawai belongs to a small town of Rajasthan and that itself is a great inspiration for talents like him in small towns and villages to come forward and participate in music reality shows," he added.

Himesh also said that he plans to record a song with Sawai soon adding that he has already recorded songs with Pawandeep Rajan, Nihal Tauro, and Mohammad Danish.
