Indian Idol 12 Controversy: The singing Reality show is facing major flak since last week when Amit Kumar claimed that he was asked to paise the contestants by the makers which he didn’t like it. Now Host Aditya Narayan says he feels no need to defend the ‘No.1 Reality Show’.
After a recent episode, Idol Shanmukhpriya was trolled on social media with angry fans demanding her elimination. Talking about the same in an interview with SpotBoye, Aditya Narayan said that Indian Idol 12 contestants are the best collection and that it’s good that the Idols are learning about the harsh reality of the world outside the reality show.
Aditya says he’s unfazed by the criticism. “To all those who are trolling and lashing out at me I say, Shashtaang Pranaam to all and God bless you. I feel like that cheetah who wouldn’t move to prove he’s the fastest in a dog race. Sometimes trying to prove your point is an insult to your own intelligence and experience. this can be how I feel while defending arguably the best collection of contestants on a reality show. Indian Idol is that the no.1 reality show for 26 weeks running. Do i need to defend it?” Also Read-Oops! When Neha Kakkar fell on stage while dancing with Aditya Narayan; Watch video
