Indian Idol 12 host Aditya Narayan revealed in a conversation with Bollywood Spy that the love story of the singing reality show contestants Arunita Kanjilal and Pawandeep Rajan is fake. This was cooked up by the creators just for the sake of entertaining and to have the audience glued to the show. In the interview, he also recalled how in the previous season, he was linked to the show’s judge Neha Kakkar and many thought they would be tying the knot after his parents also blessed them on the show.
Speaking about Arunita Kanjilal and Pawandeep Rajan’s love story being just for fun, he said, "Hum masti karte hai (We are just having some fun). People say that we cook up make-believe affairs on reality shows. So what? Did we ever say no? We do it. Ye dhong hai (This is all lie). But you enjoy it no? Because we love to do it." However, he agrees to the point that people get offended by such stories. He also questioned if people have a problem with a love story, then what can be the reason behind the population of 136 crore people in the country.'
However, he doesn’t give up on the possibility that something might happen between the two, he says, “They are young people and if something does happen between them, they have our wishes, and if not, it’s their lives. So we are just enjoying.”
Recalling the time when he was linked to Neha Kakkar, he said, “Last season, with what happened between Neha and me, people got offended as if they are our relatives. 'How can you do this?' I say 'Hello, we are putting on a show.' When you watch a TV show and the lead actor and actress are in a romantic relationship, you are aware that as soon as you say cut, they will go back to their real-life partners. Why don't you get angry at them? So I would like to remind our audience that the 'reality' part of a reality show applies to the contestant. The rest of us are there are to entertain you.” ALSO READ: Indian Idol 12: After Amit Kumar Criticized The Makers; Aditya Narayan Asks Kumar Sanu If The Makers Asked Him To Praise The Contestants
