MUMBAI: Urmila Dhangar, the singer from Badlapur who impressed judges and audiences alike with her voice, walked away with top honours at Zee Marathi's

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa season seven that culminated in Mumbai on Sunday evening. Dhangar whose husky voice and rendition of lavanis and other folk songs made her extremely popular among the contestants during the current season, was crowned the winner after an exhaustive finale, by renowned veteran folk singer Vitthal Umap.

Both were non Maharashtrians.... One can understand their vernacular ascent while singing. How can they be Zeemarathi top singers ? In India anything can happen... Even in politics , an Italian bar waitress can become President of Indian Political party.. but do it happen in Italy ? Can Indian person become Prime Minister of Italy ???

I liked urmila when she sang Kalidaar Kapuri*** but after that none of her songs impressed me so much. Abhilasha has very heart heart to heart touching voice.

Urmila Dhangar is the Verstile snger.Her voice is suitable for "Lavani" but other than that she can sing it.After her Rahul Saxena will be the good singer.He can sing in Marathi very well eventhough he is non maharashtrian. So I think Urnila & Rahul both are Winners.

Urmila was not at all a deserving candidate for this. Rahul and Abhilasha are the versatlile singers whereas Urmila's voice is suitable only for folk songs - especially lawani.

Rahul and Abhilasha were much more talented than Urmila. I was looking forward to Rahul winning the title. Urmila seems to be less versatile.

Abhilasha was much more talented than Urmila Dhangar who could sing only the folk songs better
