Indian Idol 12 has been under the scanner ever since the beginning. Viewers have been accusing the makers of showing fake love angle between Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal and lying about Sawai Bhatt and Sayli Kamble's poor backgrounds. And while the audience continue to express their disappointment with the show, Abhijeet Sawant, the winner of Indian Idol season 1, has now lashed out at the makers for focusing more on unrealistic dramas instead of the country's singing talent.
"If you look at the regional reality shows, then the audience will hardly know about the background of the contestants. Their focus is only on singing, but in Hindi reality shows, the tragic and sad stories of contestants are redeemed. The focus is only on that," Abhijeet told Aaj Tak in an interview.
Abhijeet also recalled the time when he had forgotten the lyrics of the song that he was performing on the stage. The judges had then decided to give him another chance to showcase his talent. He said that had this incident happened in today's times, it would have been turned into a shocking dramatic sequence with background effects to back it up.
A couple of days ago, host Aditya Narayan had admitted that Pawandeep and Arunita's love story is fake and it is just their attempt to entertain their viewers because he is an entertainer. Recently, Sawai Bhatt was also heard sharing his ordeal about his ailing mother and expressing his wish to leave the show midway. However, judge Himesh Reshammiya and others somehow managed to convince him to continue with his journey on the show.
Abhijeet also talked about Amit Kumar slamming the Indian Idol 12 makers and the judges Neha Kakkar and Himesh Reshammiya for ruining Kishore Kumar's iconic songs during the special episode. However, Abhijeet is of the opinion that it is unfair to compare any singer with Kishore Kumar and expect him or her to sing and adapt to his unique style. He said that singers have their own individualities and they can pay their tribute to the legendary singer in their own way.
While talking about the show, Abhijeet also revealed that he is currently jobless and many people are suggesting him to quit singing and venture into business.
