Aditya Narayan defends Indian Idol against these serious allegations

Just when the reality show 'Indian Idol' got over one controversy, it landed into another one. Initially the show was criticised for its subpar quality and phony theatrics. Several biggies from the music industry weighed their opinions on it. This time around, the show has been criticised for giving fake and scripted judgements. Music composer Salim Merchant shared that he was requested to say positive stuff about the contestants while on the show.

However, show's host Aditya Narayan has refuted these claims. He said, “Everyone who is giving quotes on being persuaded to be positive about Indian Idol contestants are colleagues and friends. Let me assure them, as long as I am hosting Indian Idol, no one here needs to praise anyone for the heck of it. Be yourself, say what you want and just come visit our show and bless us. I speak only for myself. I can’t speak on behalf of other seasons as the team/production was entirely different.”

"Our producers Sony, Fremantle & TCT along with the entire team are thrilled with the love and success of the current season. This is the most-watched reality show in the entire past decade. We want to focus on that. We would rather not think about the negativity, ” he added.
