Indian Idol's Kishore Kumar special episode made a lot of headlines. Legendary singer's son Amit who guested on the show later stated that he didn't enjoy the performances and even mentioned that he was asked by the makers of the show to praise the contestants. Amit Kumar's statement created a lot of controversy. Post that, many celebrities came forward and shared their thoughts on the same. Earlier, Abhijeet Sawant criticised the makers of the show for focusing on the contestant's tragic stories rather than their talent.
And now, Meiyang Chang, who participated in Indian Idol's fifth season, addressed the controversy and also revealed he's currently spending time with his good friend Rajat Barmecha. The singer said that he has not been a part of the Indian Idol team for a long time so he has no idea about the controversy. Meiyang added that he was a part of the fifth season and that he is not following the current season.
He added, 'I have heard that this season's singers are very trained. These singers are very powerful. Our season was simple as none of us were from the world of glamour. There was no exposure on social media. At that time, work was done with great innocence.' Adding to that, he said, 'Everyone knows about reality shows, that a little drama goes on. It was very simple in our time because none of us were from the glamour world.'
Earlier, speaking to Aaj Tak, Abhijeet Sawant said, 'These days, the makers are more interested in whether the participant can polish shoes or how poor he is, rather than their talent.'
