Indian Idol 12: Amit Kumar breaks silence on Judges & Contestants Receiving Flak

Speaking about the truth in the episode, Amit Kumar told ET, “The truth is that nobody can sing like Kishore Kumar, he was a mountain of a personality and man of many faces. The youngsters of today have no idea about him, they just know ‘Roop Tera Mastana’ from ‘Aradhna’. I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise karna hai.”

He added, “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.”

Revealing the reason behind going in the tribute episode, Amit Kumar added, “Look, everyone needs money. My father was also particular about money. They gave me the price I demanded and I went, why would I have left it? But it’s okay. I have full respect for the show and its judges and participants. It’s just one of those things that happen sometimes. There are so many good films and so many bad films. There are so many good songs and bad songs.” When said that Himesh, Neha and other contestants have garnered criticism for singing Kishore Kumar’s song badly, Amit responded, “Haan, mujhe malum hai. I didn’t enjoy the episode at all.”
