Indian Idol 12 host and anchor Aditya Narayan has been in the news for a while because of his earlier response to the statement of Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar. Recently, the music reality show paid a tribute to the legendary singer Kishore Kumar. His son Amit Kumar was the special guest for the episode. Post the episode, Amit Kumar gave a statement that he was forced to praise every contestant by the makers of the show, irrespective of how they perform. Aditya responded to this in his own style in one of the following episodes where he confirms with the guests of the show if their comments were genuine or they were forced by the makers. Although this attracted instant applauds and cheers during the shoot, later some netizens started trolling Aditya for his act.
Now, in a recent interview with TOI, the host further elaborated on the issue, and said, “People only complain about those who are in news and are successful, and by the grace of God, this season of Indian Idol has been hugely successful. We are artists, be it a dance reality show or a singing reality show, it is only full of people who are potential art-makers of the future and art is subjective. It is not like you have scored a hundred so you become the best player. Some may like the singing of one person while others may not like it, and everybody is entitled to their opinion. So, all I would say is that we are always trying our best to honor music and musicians and the good part is that the majority of our audience loves our show.”
