In a recent episode of Indian Idol season 12, the contestants and judges came together to pay a musical tribute to music legend Kishor Kumar. His son Amit Kumar was also invited as a special guest to the show. As soon as the show aired, people on the internet started calling out the Indian Idol team for spoiling Kishor Kumar’s song. Most of the viewers felt that the judges – Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya, Anu Malik, and the contestants did not do justice to the iconic songs.
Amit Kumar also said that he wasn’t happy with the episode and felt like it should be stopped halfway. The show’s host Aditya Narayan has, recently, opened about the criticism they faced. Aditya said that is never easy to honor the legacy of a legend in an hour or two. He clarified that the team was shooting the episode at a new venue under limited resources and fewer rehearsals amid the pandemic.
Aditya said that if Amit wasn’t happy with certain aspects of the show he would have told the team during the shoot and he assured that they would have done the needful to accommodate his inputs.
