Vishwajeet Borwankar

VISHWAJEET is from a very supportive musical background. Vishwajeet was introduced to the intricacies in talim under guru-shishya parampara by Dr. Ram Deshpande, who is one of the leading Vocalists of today’s generation and a torch bearer of Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet. Vishwajeet received rigourous talim of Gwalior Gharana during this period. His main motive to participate in Hero Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2012 is to showcase his talent in front of a global audience and compete with singers across thecountry.

Presently, he is under the able guidance of Pt. Babanrao Haldankar who is one of the most respected stalwarts of Agra and Jaipur Gharana. Babanraoji received his talim from great legendary maestros like Ustad Khadim Hussain Khan Sahib and Smt. Mogubai Kurdikar. Hence Vishwajeet has been fortunate to be blessed under his guidance and teachings.

Vishwajeet has been blissfully married since the past one and half years. Love blossomed between the two at his father's music classes and the rest as they say is history. Vishwajeet has been musically inclined since childhood. Since his father was a music teacher, his upbringing was in a musical milieu. He has been most influenced by his music Guru of 7 years, Dr. Ram Deshpande. Vishwajeet is the winner of Zee Marathi's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and is currently doing very well in the Marathi music industry.

Given an opportunity, he would like to meet Lata Mangeshkar and Shah Rukh Khan in the show. Music is his passion and he wants to carve a niche for himself in the same industry.
