Indian Idol host Aditya Narayan has been receiving a lot of flak for taking a dig at singer Amit Kumar for criticizing the contestants on the show.
Aditya says “To all those who are trolling and lashing out at me I say, Shashtaang Pranaam to all and God bless you. I feel like that cheetah who wouldn’t move to prove he’s the fastest in a dog race. Sometimes trying to prove your point is an insult to your own intelligence and experience .This is how I feel while defending arguably the best collection of contestants on a reality show. Indian Idol is the no.1 reality show for 26 weeks running. Do I need to defend it?”
However Aditya is glad the contestants are learning to deal with flak at such a young age. “Accha hai. They are getting to know the harsh reality of the world outside the reality show. As their fans grow, so will the critics. It is inevitable.”
