Singer Sonu Nigam, who has been a part of the singing reality show Indian Idol in the past, took to social media to talk about the unending controversy related to Indian Idol 12 and Amit Kumar Ganguly. Taking a neutral stand to it, Sonu shared a video and asked all not to heighten the matter further.
Sonu says, that Amit Kumar is a very senior and veteran member of the industry and he should be respected adding that ‘people are taking advantage of a quiet man’. Asking everyone to stop talking about it and presenting facts in an intricate manner, he requested all to respect Amit Kumar’s ‘dignified silence’ over the matter.
“A message to everyone regarding Indian Idol and Amit Kumar ji. Also, No one knows Kishore Kumar ji more than Amit Kumar ji,” he captioned the video.
He further sides the makers of the reality show, saying he find nothing odd if they asked the guest to embolden the contestants. He also spoke that singers who are at their best also commit mistakes. He also mentioned Aditya Narayan, the host of Indian Idol 12 and Manoj Muntashir, who’s presently judging the reality show to drop things and move forward. Singers Abhijeet Bhattacharya and Kumar Sanu seconded Sonu and appreciate his effort to voice the problem.
For the unversed, it all started when Amit Kumar appeared on Indian Idol 12 as a special guest for a Kishore Kumar special episode. Post the episode, speaking to a publication, he claimed that the producers of Indian Idol had asked him to praise all the contestants, regardless of his judgment.
