The singing reality show Indian Idol 12 is making quite a lot of buzz. More than singing, the show is grabbing headlines for several reasons such as love affairs among contestants, controversies and more. Singer Abhijeet Sawant, who won the first season of the reality show in 2005, recently spoke about the changes that have been brought in the format of the show, Amit Kumar controversy and much more.
In an interview with us, Abhijeet Sawant spoke about the 'extra elements' that get added to the show and how the focus has shifted from singing. "Duration of extra elements used to be short at our time. But more relevance is being given to these elements today. They must give challenging work to the contestants. When you work more on other elements, the level of singing goes down. This is my biggest issue or concern. We must spend more time on singing," Abhijeet Sawant said.
Talking about the love affairs in the show, Abhijeet Sawant said, "Every such element was fake in season 11, I have no clue about this season". He was talking about the wedding angle between host Aditya Narayan and Neha Kakkar that was added to the show. He further added, "We need to balance such creative ideas with singing. We must be famous because of our singing and not because of these stories."
Further, Abhijeet also touched upon the controversy that followed after Kishore Kumar's son Amit Kumar made shocking statements. Indian Idol 12 had a special episode dedicated to Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar was called as the chief guest. Later, Amit Kumar stated that the makers of the show had asked him to praise the contestants even though he did not like their singing. Over this, Abhijeet Sawant stated that Amit Kumar should have raised his concern then and there only. Or rather Amit Kumar should have asked the makers to let me see the performance of the contestants before the show and given his advice.
