Indian Idol Ex Contestants Abhijeet Sawant, Amit Sana & Others Break Silence On Sob Stories Controversy: “Isko Bigg Boss Nahi Banana Chahiye”
Although Indian Idol 12 was a big success, the reasons were not very favorable. This singing reality show was criticized for its overdramatic content and sob stories. The show was also exposed by Sunidhi Chauhan, Salim Merchant, and others. Abhijeet and Amit Sawant are now speaking out.
It is essential to show the background of contestants. This helps you to understand their struggles and journey. Many celebrities have shared their stories of being rejected from reality TV shows for not having a “sob story.”
Abhijeet Sawant, Indian Idol Season 1 winner, had previously criticized the show’s sob stories. He’s now open about romantic aspects like Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal. TOI he said, “This love element is too common, but it’s also very popular.” This is intentional. What is the commoner or actors doing on social media? To grab attention, posting pictures of their families and other activities. However, I believe that credible judges and guests should voice their opinions and not follow this nok-junk. It’s certainly not the best way to present a show.
Amit Sana, Indian Idol Season 1 Finalist, also reacted to the controversy. According to him, the entire format is like an outline. Ek chhoti si cheez bhi chhodni nahi hai. Isko ‘Bigg Boss’ nahi banana chahiye. It doesn’t look very nice. “So much drama for the sake of entertainment?”
Prajakta Shukre, a former contestant on Indian Idol, criticized the show for romantic angles like Aditya Narayan and Neha Kakkar. She said, “I recall a reality program harping about Neha Kakkar and Aditya Narayan’s affair. Then people started asking when they were getting married.” Reality shows are simply feeding social media, as people on Instagram and Twitter are keen to learn more about participants’ personal lives.
