Indian Idol 12 contestant Ashish Kulkarni, who's landed in the top 7, got a chance along with his co-participants to visit his family after a gap of six months on account of the entire Indian Idol team being a part of a bio-bubble due to stringent COVID-19 measures. Now that they're home, a few of the Indian Idol contestants have also begun speaking to the media. During a recent interview with ETimes, Ashish Kulkarni opened up on allegations of the entire program being scripted and how “real” exactly is the reality singing show?
Opening up on the controversies Indian Idol season 12 has found itself embroiled in, Ashish Kulkarni said that as artists, they all (him and his fellow contestants) are very emotions both for and because of the audience as they exist because of the audience and are also wholly committed toward the audience. So, whatever negative feedback comes their way after a performance, they all take it genuinely and work toward it in a positive manner. He also doesn't mind the trolling as according to Ashish, it's only a means for their audience to express their opinion, finding nothign wrong with it and in fact, speaks for every participant on the show by reiterating that they take such feedback in a positive light and work on it, adding that those who don't like then will end up getting so much love for them that their dislike will eventually change.
Addressing allegations that the current season of Indian Idol is scripted, Ashish Kulkarni added in the same interview that none of their performances are scripted, they're all natural, organic and what is shown on television is exactly how they perform on stage, in a totally unscripted manner. As per him, whoever singes well gets praised and those who don't faces the wrath of the contestants and esteemed guests. He further stated that the journey shows of the contestants are also all true, absolutely nothing is scripted.
Well, we'll have to take Ashish's word for the time being, right?
