Pradeep and Surendra Friends in melody

mainpicPradeep Rangana Abeysinghe, the medico musician emerged as the ‘Super Star’ at the ‘Sirasa” sponsored contest. Surendra Perera became the runner-up.

In the true Sri Lankan style, the supporters of either side spread stories to drive a wedge between the two rising stars in the music scene.

The first assignment of the winner Pradeep on the day after his victory was to drive to meet his best friend in music, the runner-up, Surendra. Pradeep and Surendra are the best of friends and have plans to appear together often on the same stage.

  4. What is pradeep’s voice? We still find it . Surendrea’s voice is with much clarity. No one can argue about it. It became quite evident that surendra is the peoples star. Pradeep definitly can’t outsmart surendra on the stage.

    Photo of the day: Surendra and Pradeep
    Posted by Ranjith Wijewardene under Sri Lanka | Tags: , Pradeep Rangana, Sirasa Super Star, South Asia, Sri Lanka, Surendra Perera, World News |

    Wow! Wow! Wow! What do you do when you’ve got two of Sri Lanka’s best left on “Sirasa Super Star” and only the very best could be the winner at today’s grand finale at the Sugathadasa Stadium?

    You start to look each of their strengths, and find out more information to make your decision.

    Let’s look at how one goes about doing this, shall we?

    If you google Surendra Perera’s name, 17,700 items come up; Pradeep Rangana produces 828, a good 16,872 less. So, Surendra should win, right?

    Surendra and Pradeep both will do very well; we at Lanka Page wish them both the very best.

    Surendra Perera says via friday:
    “The Sirasa Super Star is the best program today. Its competitiveness provides experience and training to the rising stars. This was the best experience in my life. The program is a national program in my view.”

    Pradeep Rangana says via friday:
    “There are no words to praise this program because its so good. We know the value of it. The public have been given the opportunity to evaluate our talents. Sirasa TV is the best channel with commitment and dedication. I wish more competitions of this nature will emerge in the future to benefit talent of our youth.”

    Dear Pradeep,

    Like others i connot say Pradeep Aiya as i am 1 1/2 years elder to you. If not i will definitely marry you. As your voice has made me to love u…………..

    Whatever, i wanted to see you y’day when u were traveling to your hometown, but i am living out of that route.

    Hey wanted to know whether you have any crush on Maheshika. As i felt like that.

    I have your number but didn’t want to disturb u.

    Anyway, i want to wish u all the very best and just keep ur sweet smile forever. Don’t ever change your attitude. No matter how far you fly.

    With lots of love,

    (hope to see a reply)

    Well done the rest of Super Stars (Amila/Budhhika/Suren/Maheshika/Gamini/…all..)

    Finally, Pradeep u were awesome!
    Keep it up boy.

    A bit sorry for Buddhika, as i was waiting to see him at the final. Whatever, hope to see your CV out soon. I like you eyes too.

    Dear Pradeep fans,

    Where were you in the first 10 final rounds, when Surendra always came on top and Pradeep just managed to hang on till the end? How is it that suddenly Pradeep emerged as the superstar in the 11th round beating the hot favourite?
    Match fixing?
    In my mind, there is only one real superstar,SURENDRA.
    Pradeep is the second best.

    Kelum Says:
    November 8, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    K. sen u r absolutely correct. the man who had been dominating for 10 weeks all of a sudden had lost to some1 who managed 2 just hang in there by a thin thread.
    I believe it’s not SMS that chose SSS but Sirasa itself. Every thing of round of 12 had gone in to a script already designed by them even b4 round of 12 began.

    Imagine had Surendra, the overwhelming favourite won, nobody wouldn’t have had anything 2 speak about, no controversies. But Pradeep’s amazing victory made all of us 2 talk about this final & so many debates, arguments,comments are made about this, so many controversies. that’s what Sirasa wanted. U guyz fooled ur selves by sending down loads of SMS.
    Any way Surendra was the real shining star.
    Pradeep a hard worker not naturally gifted as Surendra

    Whatever happened in the final, I have no doubt about Surendra’s talent. He is a gifted singer and knows how to capture everyone’s heart. He has given new lives to those songs he sang in the competition. No doubt he was the BEST.
    I wish him all the best.

    What is pradeep’s voice ? we are still trying to find out what is his real voice. He is such a immitator. Surendra’s voice is with much clarity. Truth cannot be hide for ever. Pradeep will be a failier.
