Indian Idol is one of the popular reality shows of small screen and always grabs one of the top 20 positions in BARC India's viewership list. But the show is currently making headlines for all the wrong reasons. And this is because of a tweet by a former participant, which went viral.
Nishant Kaushik, who had reached the third round in 2012 edition of this popular show, took to Twitter to express his grudge. He elaborated in detail about the abuse some contestants face during all these by the sheer lack of organisation on the part of the producers and organizers. He wrote, "Brief, nonchalant thread about my auditioning experience at Indian Idol 2012 and why I think it is a perfect platform to destroy your dreams as opposed to its common perception as a breeding ground for talent."[sic] He went on elaborating about all the tortures contestants go through in a number of threads. These instantly went viral and people couldn't stop flooding their opinions in it. Amongst the many, former host Mini Mathur also responded to this Tweet. She wrote, "This sucks. Thanks for forwarding me this thread. I wasn’t part of the 2012 season but I know most of what he has articulated is known to happen on reality tv. One of the reasons I bowed out. This incessant need to create false emotion. RIP Organic, pure TV."[sic] She hosted the show between 2004-2007 and then again on 2012.
Currently, Indian Idol season 10 is being judged by Anu Malik, Neha Kakkar and Vishal Dadlani. The show is hosted by Maniesh Paul.
