Bigg Boss 14 fame Rahul Vaidya shares his views on the controversies and drama that goes around on Indian Idol 12.
Indian Idol has been in the news ever since Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar lashed out at the show. The singer picked at the show and called it fake. After him, Indian Idol 1 winner Abhijeet Sawant too criticised the show.
Now, Indian Idol season 1 contestant Rahul Vaidya has also shared his views on what he thinks of the makers asking the judges to only give positive comments. He told ETimes, “I really don’t know what really happens now on the show. I had read somewhere that one of the guests had commented that he was asked to praise the contestants. I feel all the singers on the show are good singers. There’s no denying their talent.”
“Eventually, what happens at the end of the day the show is made from an entertainment point of view. The show is made to make people hear the singers but it also has an entertainment quotient attached to it” He Added.

The 33 years singer said, “If any guest judge was asked to praise a contestant and not criticise what is the big deal in that. I don’t know why people are making such a big fuss about it. I also heard there was some romantic angle going on in the show, it was done for fun. He was not told to marry the contestant at a gun point. Why such a big deal, the show has been running for the last 6-7 months, and this is done just for entertainment.”
Rahul Vaidya added that things were simpler in the first season. “I would like to add here during our time, during the first season that show was too pure. Neha Kakkar, who is the judge of the show, earlier was there as a contestant on the second season. Even she would agree that we would get just 2 minutes 30 seconds for our performance. We would go on stage, perform, comeback and sit. It was very pure and simple. Now things have changed as everything goes through evolution. That’s how the world functions. Today, it is also about packaging. Uss time ka alag charm tha.., aaj ki kahani alag hai (The charm was different at that time, now the story is different),” he said.
