Growing younger: Singing sensation was 11 years last year, and now she is 10!

Submitted by alvin on Sat, 2016-10-29 16:20 Bengaluru: Nishta Sharma is by now a house-hold name for her exceptional singing talent. After having won the recently concluded The Voice India Kids contest, this UP-based girl is being seen as the next singing sensation. Coaches Shaan, Neeti Mohan and Shekhar Ravjiani have been raining praises on this little wonder.  Nistha Sharma is only 10 years old and mellifluous voice, absolutely belies her age. But what the regular viewers of this singing reality show have observed was the “incorrect” mention of her age.  “Last year, she participated in the Indian Idol singing contest and there her age was mentioned as 11 years. However, the recently concluded The Voice India Kids show said Nishta was only 10 years,” says Rachitha Rao, resident of Indiranagar, who is an ardent fan of such reality shows.  She expressed her shock when she said that even Nishta says she is ten-year-old!  “Either the organisers of Indian Idol or The Voice India Kids are lying about her age for their own benefit,” Rachitha says.  Reality shows are known to “mislead” viewers for their popularity. However, such tricks turn out to be unjust for other talented youngsters in that age group, she reasons.​
