Pune: Eminent singer Asha Bhonsle disapproves of the participation of young singers in TV reality shows, saying it does not promote their career prospects.
"There are lots of talented young boys and girls who take part in TV shows to achieve fame. They dress up, wear make-up and dance while singing. This dancing and dressing up is not required for a genuine singer," she said in a media interaction here today.
Asha also asked parents not to encourage their children to participate in TV shows and instead mould them with classical music training.
"The chances of these young people in TV shows getting an opportunity to sing in films are also less as now a days most of the music directors also double as play back singers," she added.
