LV Revanth is the winner of Indian Idol
The grand finale of Indian Idol competition has taken place yesterday and like the reports claimed, it was Lolla Venkata Revanth Kumar who grabbed the title. The fact is that the young singer has faced difficulties with the accent while singing in Hindi. But he worked hard and made it big at the competition. The early polls and the other private news portals have predicted Revanth as the winner of the title in the morning itself but the final confirmation has come later in the evening. Revanth was handed over the trophy by former India's cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar. Besides the title, Revanth won prize money of Rs 25 lakh, Mahindra KUV100 and a music contract with Sony Music. Revanth captured 55 per cent of votes from viewers. The other two finalists Khuda Baksh and PVSN Rohit, secured 34 per cent and 11 per cent votes respectively. Revanth's first film song happened in 2008, Jalak Diklaja for Telugu movie Maha Yagnam. He has sung around 200 songs for Telugu and Kannada films, and has won several awards for his tracks in films like Baahubali: The Beginning, Badrinath and Rajanna. Revanth is the second Telugu singer to win Indian Idol, after Sreeram Chandra, who won the fifth season.
