Sahiba, a model who hails from Orissa, has been interested in singing since childhood.
She is currently pursuing nutrition and health education from IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University) but hopes to be a professional singer someday.
This is her second attempt at Indian Idol.
“I was very young when I had come to audition for Indian Idol. I wasn’t taken because of my age.
“Anu (Malik) sir, Sunidhi (Chauhan) ma’am and Salim (Merchant of Salim-Sulaiman fame) sir had told me then to come back when I grew up. So here I am!” she smiles.
