Indian Idol is one of the most popular television reality shows. It gives a platform to the aspiring singers who want to make a career in the music world. Currently, season 12 of the show is on air and it enjoys a large fan following. However, of late, it’s been making headlines for the wrong reasons.
Speaking of which, the show’s Kishore Kumar special episode made tons of headlines. Legendary singer’s son Amit who appeared on the show later stated that he didn’t enjoy the performances and even mentioned that he was asked by the makers of the show to praise the contestants. Amit Kumar’s statement created tons of controversy. Post that, many celebrities came forward and shared their thoughts on the same.
Previously, Abhijeet Sawant criticised the makers of the show for focusing on the contestant’s tragic stories instead of their talent. And now, Meiyang Chang, who participated in Indian Idol’s fifth season, addressed the controversy and also revealed he’s currently spending time together with his good friend Rajat Barmecha. The singer said that he has not been a part of the Indian Idol team for a long time so he has no idea about the controversy.
Meiyang added that he was a part of the fifth season which he’s not following the present season. “I have heard that this season’s singers are very trained. These singers are very powerful. Our season was simple as none of us were from the world of glamour. There was no exposure on social media. At that point, work was done with great innocence.”
He said, “Everyone knows about reality shows, that a touch drama goes on. it had been very simple in our time because none people were from the glamour world.”
Despite all the flak, the show has huge TRPs. Meiyang Chang is one among the most contestants from season one. Some days back, Abhijeet Sawant also slammed the show.
