Indian Idol 12 garnered a lot of negativity for the show after the Amit Kumar episode. Amit Kumar‘s harsh criticism on Kishore Kumar special episode about being asked to praise the contestants opened a can of worms that went on to question the show’s authenticity. And singer Sunidhi Chauhan also has revealed that she quit Indian Idol as a judge because the makers had asked her to praise contestants on the show. “Not exactly this ki sabko karna hai (that praise all of them) but yes, we all were told (to praise). That was the basic thing. And so, I couldn’t go on. I couldn’t do what they wanted and I had to part ways. Hence, today, I am not judging any reality show,” Sunidhi, who was a part of the judges panel of the 5th and 6th season of Indian Idol, told TOI in an interview.
Now, Aditya Narayan was asked if the guest judges are asked to make only favourable comments about the contestants. He said, “No, they are not.” Earlier, Manoj Muntashir lashed out at Amit saying that he took the money and then went on to criticised the show. “If Amit Kumar came out and lashed out at the show, he shouldn’t have agreed to be a part of it in the first place. He took money for being a part of the show and then criticised it. I wouldn’t have done what Amit Kumar did. If I was in his place and not comfortable with the proceedings, I would have told the makers that I don’t want to be a part of the show,” Manoj Muntashir told TOI.
Manoj also defended Neha and Himesh against Amit’s harsh criticism saying that ‘whatever Neha and Himesh sang, they did to celebrate Kishore Kumar and it should have been taken in the right spirit.’ He also said that it is wrong for the guest judges to constantly criticise the contestants as it will demotivate them.
