“I did a lot of shows after winning the show. I was earning money but still could not make ends meet. Then I thought maybe I should do something again but my voice started to change with age. Then people heard me and said ‘How is he singing? He is singing bad’. They started saying that I was no good anymore. After that, I went into depression and quit singing entirely,” Azmat said.
He also revealed how bad company led him to drug addiction. “I started keeping bad company, even got addicted to drugs. Those wanted to ruin my life, got what they wanted,” he went on to add.
In the year 2011, Azmat was the most popular child artist. He was awarded the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L'il Champs trophy by Shah Rukh Khan, who was mighty impressed with his powerful voice.
