Earlier, Sawai told the judges – Neha Kakkar, Vishal Dadlani, and Himesh Reshammiya that he wanted to quit the show as he wants to be with his mother, who has been sick for the past 3-4 months. While talking about his mother, Sawai said that he doesn’t think he could be able to go any further in the show as he is not feeling good since his mother has not been keeping well for the past few weeks.
However, the judges convinced him to stay back and focus on his music. Himesh Reshammiya spoke with the Bombay Times and shared, “I had to convince Sawai to stay back. The channel has assured him that his parents can come to Mumbai and stay with him. This way, he can be with them as well as continue with his singing journey in the show. Sawai has been singing consistently well on the show. He has the potential to be the next Indian Idol. With his raw talent and right songs, he can achieve a lot in his career. Sawai belongs to a small town of Rajasthan and that itself is a great inspiration for talents like him in small towns and villages to come forward and participate in music reality shows.”
