Anonymous : He is the best singer in India today and will remain forever. He has a husky voice and also has the ability to change it as per the requirements of the lyrics of the song. We could never compare his voice in raabta(sweet voice) and kalank title track(heavy husky voice for sad songs). He is just an awesome and talented singer.♥️
