Tips Industries Ltd has signed three young heartthrobs of the nation viz. SHAMIT TYAGI, MONA BHATT and ARIJIT SINGH of ?Fame Gurukul? - the popular reality show on Sony TV.
The company has entered into an "EXCLUSIVE ARTISTE MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT" with them, under which the artists shall undertake assignments like singing, acting in Music Videos Albums, Films, Serials, Stage Shows, Modeling on Stage, Modeling in Advertisements, Personal Appearances, Endorsements of Products or any other assignments for the company.
The above step is yet another achievement to the mission of TIPS, i.e. "TO INTRODUCE PROMISING STARS" to the country by giving them a strong foundation of expert knowledge, incredible experience, great breakthroughs and compassionate fellow beings.
Kumar Taurani of Tips refused to reveal the duration of the contracts, saying, "It is something that cannot be disclosed. I can't tell you the number of years for which we have signed them." But it has surely opened new doors for these upcoming singers who couldn't win the Jodi No.1 title that went to Qazi Touqeer and Ruprekha Banerjee.
When asked about the contract, Arijit, an 18-year-old boy from Murshidabad in West Bengal, sounded upbeat and said, "I am very happy with this contract. They have promised us five albums in the next five years. But it doesn't mean that we cannot work outside the company. "We just have to inform TIPS. For example, if I get an offer and decide to sing, I will have to inform the company about it. See, I am doing shows organized by other companies." Shamit, who is 26 and finished his graduation from Kirori Mal College, Delhi, was more discreet and said, "According to the contract, I can't have a personal album; otherwise I am allowed to do playback singing for films and take up other assignments - but, of course, with the consent of TIPS."
"I can tell you it's like a dream come true and I would like to be associated with TIPS forever. I want the company to do well through me because if the company does well, it will trust me and give me more opportunities."
The three have been busy with stage shows because according to their initial contract with TIPS, they were not supposed to take up any new assignments for three months after the ?Fame Gurukul finale?.
