`India`s Got Talent 3` winners` F1 dreams
New Delhi: They hail from the suburbs of Mumbai and they dream big. The Suresh & Vernon Group, a team of 30 youngsters who won reality show `India`s Got Talent 3` -- thanks to their mesmerising stunts mixed with dance moves -- hope to perform at the upcoming India Grand Prix in Greater Noida later this month.
"The Formula One racing is the biggest upcoming event in the country, and we would love to perform there if we get a call. It will be a great platform," Suresh Mukund, a group member, told reporters from Mumbai.
Colors` "India`s Got Talent" winners have had an impressive past record.
The Prince Dance Group, winners of the show`s first season, performed at the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in the national capital in 2010, while the second season`s winner -- Shillong Chamber Choir -- sang before US President Barack Obama during his India visit last year.
So chances that Suresh & Vernon Group get to stage their action-packed act at the racing event seems bright.
The group has participants from Mumbai suburbs like Vasai, Virar and Nala Sopara, tells Suresh.
"Most of them belong to small towns and come from lower-middle class backgrounds. They used to travel four to five km by taking lifts to reach the practice session, and we rehearsed for around one-and-a-half months for at least 10 hours a day. That has reaped benefits," he said.
The Suresh & Vernon Group came out of the Fictitious Group, which participated in the past two seasons of "India`s Got Talent", but lost. But determination kept them going.
"We couldn`t win that time... but then for the third season, some of us we made this new group and returned with a lot of practice," said Suresh, whose group took home a cash prize of Rs.50 lakh, as well as a plasma TV.
The winners were announced Saturday night.
"We feel we have set an example that nothing is impossible if one is determined to achieve his or her dreams. We believed that we should keep trying...and in the end, we won."
He feels the financially-backward members of the group will now be able to find some stability. The group already has some offers coming its way.
"We got a call from some London filmmakers 15 days back, and they want to make a film on us -- with us. We are hoping for the best. We have also received a call from Tollywood for a promotional video where they want us to show our skills."
And what about Bollywood? "It is a tough industry to get into, but we wish within 10 years we are able to make a mark in the industry," he added.
