Singer Navraj Hans, son of iconic singer Hans Raj Hans, says coming from an influential family background makes it easy to get the first opportunity, but without consistency in performance and hard work, nobody can survive in competitive times. Navraj has grown up listening to and learning from his father, and has rubbed shoulders with many celebrated musicians.Asked if nepotism has worked in his favour, Navraj told IANS: “It is a wrong perception that people have about us on getting an easy ride in our respected fields. One cannot survive without maintaining consistency. There are many star kids who got their first opportunity easily for the obvious reason, but could not survive in the long run because at the end of the day, hard work pays off. And since we come from an influential family, my father is a highly regarded person, people have huge expectations from me. “We star kids are always under high expectation… Matching up to that is a responsibility that we carry,” he said.Does he feel the pressure of carrying forward his father’s legacy?
“Look, there are two ways to deal with it — either feel the pressure or get inspiration. I choose the latter. I never think about how to impress the world to prove my greatness as a singer and as the son of Hans Raj Hans. I idolise my father because I knew that if I follow this great man, I might become a good human being in future.“When I started singing, I just wanted to impress my guru, my father – the great artist that the world knows. I learnt from him, I idolised him and have tried to bring my own style. And this process will continue in my journey,” added the singer. His latest song is Mundiyan from Baaghi 2. It is a recreated version of the original song Mundian to bach ke, originally sung by ung by Labh Janjua.
