Here is an interview with Harshdeep Kaur who won the show Lux Junoon Kuch Kar Dikhane Ka:

Your song Lut jau from Karzzz is doing very well..
Yeah it is. The music is catching up. Himesh Reshammiya was looking for a different voice for the song, and he thought my rustic voice would be right for it. 

You won Lux Junoon Kuch Kar Dikhane Ka.. you were called the audience ki ladli on the show..
(Laughs) In a way it was tough to beat established singers like Abhas Joshi and Malini Awasthi. My genre of music was sufi. The show had Pakistani singers rendering songs in rich Punjabi but I simplified my songs.. and made them more appealing for the young listeners. I think that worked. 

Would you consider Ek Omkar from Rang De Basanti your breakthrough? 
(Gushes) Yes, yes, yes. I might even do a Punjabi musical.. titled Ek Omkar. 

At 21 you have worked with nearly all the music directors.. A R Rahman, Vishal-Shekhar, Pritam, Anand Raj Anand, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Pritam.. 
More the merrier.. Id want to sing more for them, especially for A R Rahman sir

So you thank reality television for it?
I do. Initially the audience only related to the voice. Now they know me by face.. Its a big deal. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, my mentor, has extracted the best out of me. 

Whats in store? 
Quite a few projects. Kajra re and Idiot Box and my private sufi album. I play the piano, I am a pure musician. Whatever I do in the future acting or TV has to be related to music

How was the experience of singing with Mr. A.R. Rehman? 
I have always admired Mr. Rehman's music. Singing with him was like appearing for the board exams. I was excited as well as nervous. But to my astonishment, the moment I entered into the recording studio and began to sing, everything went by as smooth as an ice cream. 

Tell us about the song in Rang De Basanti. 
It is not a song. It is an extract from Japji Saahib, the Sikh's Morning Prayer. I consider it an honor to sing Ik Onkaar. Since childhood I have been singing it. We recorded the song at 4 in the morning. It is believed that early morning is the time of God and I actually felt God standing next to me and making me sing. 
Tell us about your first break as a playback singer. 
My first film as a playback singer was with Music Director duo Nikhil Vinay for the film Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. The best part was that for the first time my name was featured along with music maestros like Jagjit Singh, Asha Bhosle, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Alisha Chinoy and many more. 
How was the feeling of hearing your voice on the silver screen? 
It is a moment that I will never forget. For the first time I was hearing my voice in a cinema theatre. Not only me, but also hundreds of people sitting next to me were listening to my voice. Up till now my only audience used to be my family, but now there were people outside my family who were listening to my voice. My parents were almost crying with happiness. I felt even more responsible. 
You started as a pop singer with your album Romantica. When can we expect more albums from you? 
I am working on my album. I am also composing the tunes. It will be released this year. 
That is wonderful. How did you get into composing? 
I enjoy composing music. I don't want people to know me just as a singer. I want the world to know me as a complete Musician. I love each and every aspect of Music and don't want to stay untouched from any one of it. 
How did you come into the field of music? 
I didn't come into this field. I was born in the house that was full of music. My father, Mr. Savinder Singh, owns a factory of Musical Instruments in Delhi known as House of Music. We had almost all the musical instruments at home. So getting attracted towards music was inevitable. 
From where did you get your formal training in Music? 
Initially, my father used to teach me. But later he sent me to Shri Tejpal Singh Ji (popularly known as Singh Bandhus). I learnt Indian Classical Music from him and Western Classical Music from Mr. George Pulinkala. I also joined the Delhi School of Music to learn the Piano. 
You started your career at an early age. Did it disturb your studies in any way? 
Not at all. My parents have always given a lot of importance to studies. They never allowed me to take unnecessary leaves from school. I have always enjoyed studying as it broadens one's perspective. I did my schooling from Delhi and then my family shifted to Mumbai. The first thing that my father made me do after shifting to Mumbai was to fill the forms of all the colleges and look for the best course. I then joined S.N.D.T. Women's University. I am pursuing a Graduate course in Audio Production. 
What is it, besides music, that you like spending your time on? 
Studies. At college we get a lot of projects and assignments. At home I am always busy completing them. 
Everyone has a role model. Who has been your source of inspiration both in and outside the field of music? 
My father acquainted me to music. He taught me the basic Sa Re Ga MA. So he is my role model
