Amit Kumar Reveals He Didn’t Enjoy Indian Idol 12’s Kishor Kumar Special Episode, Says, “I Was Told To Praise The Contestants”
In the last week’s episode of Indian Idol 12, the contestants and judges paid tribute to the legendary singer and actor Kishore Kumar. The contestants along with the judges sang almost 100 songs of the legendary singer. But the audience didn’t seem to like the episode. The contestants and the judges were hilariously trolled for the poor quality of the episode. Ashok Kumar (son of legendary singer Kishore Kumar) who was invited as the chief guest of the show has also revealed that he didn’t enjoy the episode at all and he even went on to say that he wanted to stop the episode.
In a recent interview with Times Of India, Amit Kumar had revealed that he completely disliked the episode, “Frankly, I wanted to stop the episode,” adding that he was asked to laud every contestant irrespective of their performance. “I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise kamana hai. I was told jo jaisa bhi gaaye usko uplift karna hai because it’s a tribute to Kishore da. I thought it will be a homage to my father. But once there, I just followed what I was asked to do. I had told them to give me portions of the script in advance, but nothing of that sort happened.”

On Monday a Twitter user shared that how he feels that Neha Kakkar, Anu Malik, and Himesh Reshammiya ruined Kishore Kumar’s songs awfully and wrote, “#IndianIdol2021 #indianidol #SonyLIV please spare Kishore Kumar’s songs.. this is a worst singing I’ve ever witnessed of Kishore’s songs.. all my favorite songs are screwed by @iAmNehaKakkar @The_AnuMalik and all participants”. While another remarked, “Neha Kakkar do whatever you want to do with your songs. please don’t even think to spoil Kishore Kumar Sir’s songs #IndianIdol #100SongsOfKishoreKumar.”
Have a look at some of the hilarious tweet:

Sorry to say, but Himesh is murdering the legendary Kishor Kumar songs on #indianidol. The contestants are so much better.
