The news about Pota being ousted from Bangla Band Cactus has been doing the rounds for quite some time now but when asked about the same, this diplomatic and dynamic young musician very casually brushed off the whole issue saying that people should do what they feel is in their best interest and in this case both he and his ex-band has done just that. With no intentions whatsoever of ever going back to the band, this versatile singer is just about ready with Pota’s Band and quite a few melodious tracks for new Bangla Movies.

Mr. Burman very candidly said that though the game show is good and a very professional platform, its outcome could have been shaped very differently had the creative team responsible for the overall presentation put in some more thought into it. Though on a personal level the reality show has not been able to make any difference to the singer’s life it has definitely earned him some friends for life like Tollywood Actor/Director Rudranil Ghosh.
Time and again Pota has been accused of being too straightforward and brash and when asked about his reaction on such comments, this passionate singer very casually agreed to the fact saying that he only believes in speaking his heart out and doesn’t really care about the impressions people choose to etch out of his straightforwardness. “I have always stood by what is right, just and honest and will continue to do so without giving an ear to what people have to say as eventually it is the truth that people support, Said Pota.
Pota the foodie and sports buff also touched upon his relationship with popular Bengali singer Silajit Majumder (Interview) saying that it is not that their relationships are strained in any way; it is just a difference of opinion but need be, Pota will never hesitate to support and back Silajit.
At the close of the conversation, Pota who is an icon and role model for many a aspiring Bangla bands and singers signed off saying that speaking the truth and supporting what is just and opposing what is wrong is very important and people should follow this very basic law of civilization without really paying any heed to what peer groups and critics have to say.
