Akshay Kumar plays real life hero! - Bollywood superstar launches new child singing discovery, Tejaswani

Bollywood golden boy, Akshay Kumar, played real life hero on Saturday 23rd February, when he introduced singing child prodigy, Tejaswani, to the industry and world alike, on Zee TV’s popular show, Little Champs. The Bollywood superstar discovered the young singer’s talent on a recent trip to Chandigargh and, proving that Singh is King, Akshay presented her on stage in the most emotional episode of the ratings-winnning show to date.

An outstanding singer and lifelong fan of music legend, Lata Mangeshkar, Tejaswani is aged 21, but has the mind of a three-year-old. Akshay Kumar’s fascination with the child increased even further when he realised she could barely communicate in sentences, but had the ability to sing like an angel. Although she has severe speech difficulties, Tejaswani can recite over 200 Lata Mangeshkar songs by heart.
On meeting the extraordinary and gifted child, Akshay Kumar was deeply moved, propelling him to use his position as one of Bollywood’s most respected stars to give a voice to Tejaswani’s unsung talents. He comments, “These children need a hand to give them direction and not our sympathy to weaken them. We should respect what we have, and the power to help another should be our sole purpose. Tejaswani gives me the strength to believe all of us can make a difference.
“Parents of these special children should not be ashamed as these children are as normal as my own child. I would like all parents to learn from Tejaswini’s mother who has supported and encouraged her daughter to be the singer that she is today. She has given her the ability to dream of a career in music. I am sure that with her mother’s blessing and our support Tejaswini will be a big singer some day.”

Akshay Kumar has brought Tejaswani to the forefront of public awareness to influence other parents to encourage their own children, who may suffer from various disorders. He believes that every child is unique, possessing a gift which, when nurtured, will always stand out. In the case of Tejaswani, the Bollywood star recognised it to be her outstanding singing ability, and he has full faith that she will make it big someday.
