Indian Idol 12 finale is just around the corner, as they recently got their top 7 contestants of which one will take home the sparkling trophy. As per interaction with ETimes, former judge of the show, singer Javed Ali opened up on many topics that has kept the show in the news. The judge answered all the questions with a pinch of salt as most of the questions were targeted around the show’s controversies. To begin with, he was quizzed about Amit Kumar’s claims of the makers asking him to only praise the contestants when he graced an episode dedicated to his father Kishore Kumar.
He replied, “Well, I was quite surprised when I heard that. Kyunki mere saath to aisa nahin hua tha. I used to give my genuine opinion based on what I felt. I was told to not fake it because people come to know if you aren't honest.” This was followed by being asked that singer Sunidhi Chauhan who also revealed when she was one of the judges of Indian Idol 6, makers wanted the show to go according to their terms and hence, she quit the show. Responding to this Javed Ali said, “Phir woh thoda sochne wali baat hai. Mujhe nahin pata ki hua hoga ya nahi, lekin mere saath nahi his (Then it is a thought-provoking thing, though I have no idea what had happened, nothing like this happened with me).”
On being quizzed who will take home the trophy for Indian Idol 12, he stated it is a difficult one to pick, but went on to pick three names. He said, “Difficult to say. It's between Pawandeep Rajan, Arunita Kanjilal, Mohd. Danish and a few others.”
As per reports makers are planning to air the finale episode on Independence day i.e. on August 15, 2021.
