Speaking about the top 10 contestants and his visit to Delhi, popular singer Abhijeet Sawant said, “I am proud of all the kids who have made it this far, considering the pressures, challenges and sheer competitiveness that they had to deal with it. Owing to the format of the show, while it feels sad to eliminate contestants, I hope to provide all the support and confidence to the current contestants, who have a tough battle waiting ahead of them. Love Me India stage has set the bar tremendously high and I can’t wait to see where the competition will go from here. Delhi has always been one of my favorite cities and the positive energy and vibes that this city gives is always encouraging. Hence, I see why it is aptly known as ‘Dilwalon ki Dilli’. This city has always showered me with immense amount of love and I hope they keep doing so for our young contestants as well.”
Adding to his thoughts and sharing her experience as a captain, the melodious singer Bhoomi Trivedi said, “Stepping aboard as a captain is one of the most exciting firsts that I have had and undoubtedly the journey till now in Love Me India has been nothing short of exciting and challenging as well. I have had a rollercoaster of emotions, where on one hand I rejoiced in the celebration of a few of my zonal contestants making it to the Top 10, while on the other, I had to bid goodbye to a few exceptionally talented singers. Nevertheless, I am extremely proud of these 10 contestants who despite facing a number of challenges, never let their confidence down. I am glad I got a chance to visit Delhi with our fellow contestants who were as excited as I was to visit the Capital city. Like always, we were greeted with great warmth and the aroma of Dilli’s delicious food.”
