Armaan Ma­lik (be­low) has a high re­gard for awards that cel­e­brate ta­lent in the film in­dus­try. He says the ac­co­lades en­cour­age him to be­come a bet­ter singer.

“Awards mean a lot to me. I feel re­warded when I get an award, or even get nom­i­nated, as it’s like an ac­cep­tance from the fra­ter­nity... These are rare, trea­sur­able mo­ments... I don’t get at­tached to win­ning awards, but they en­cour­age me to be­come bet­ter at what I do,” says Armaan, who was de­clared the best play­back singer at a re­cently-held awards do, for his hit track, Besabriyan, from the film MS Dhoni: The Un­told Story (2016).

He be­lieves that the song won be­cause “peo­ple who want to achieve their dreams” could re­late to it. “In the film, it plays in the back­ground, as [ac­tor] Sushant Singh Ra­jput (who es­says Dhoni) runs from work to catch a train to go for cricket prac­tice. I’ve also done that. I’d fin­ish my school, and run to [mu­sic-com­posers] Vishal-Shekhar’s stu­dio to record a song for Bhoot­nath (2008),” shares Armaan, who re­cently turned 22.
