have no expectations. I just want to be recognised
as a good singer and make people happy with my
songs. I live to sing," says Benny Dayal, arguably
one of the most happening young singers of Tamil
"Music is one of the greatest sources of
energy. It gives you faith. It has the power to make
people come out of tough times and feel better. It's
the best way to express one's emotions," the singer
says in a recent interview.
Heaping praises on A R Rahman, Dayal says, "I
went to him and hummed a few lines. He seemed pretty
impressed with my style and made me sing the final
take. That was the turning point in life. Rahman
doesn't advise anyone. He is very calm and never
loses his temper. He makes things easier for the
singer and looks at work as fun."
Benny Dayal says he likes Shankar Mahadevan a
lot. "I admire and adore him to a fanatical extent,"
