Singing reality shows, especially the ongoing Indian Idol 12, have been receiving enough flak. The audience, who would once religiously watch Indian Idol 12, are complaining of excessive melodrama, fake love stories and unfair evictions. Around 8 months since premiere, people are now finding it boring. In the middle of this, Amit Kumar's statement added fuel. Now, Kumar Sanu, a renowned singer, spoke to a leading daily about reality shows. A frequent guest on Indian Idol 12, he said the more the gossip, the better will be the TRP.
"Jitna gossip hoga, utna TRP badhega, samjha karo. Badi baat nahi hai. Talent finds a way and these shows bring the talent to the fore, but what next? Not just Indian Idol, every show brings such talent to public platform. Maybe they do not get a chance in the industry, they may get a chance to get some work and money," Kumar Sanu told.
He further added, "It is the responsibility of producers, music directors to offer work to them. Many singers are there, they are talented but someone needs to give them work. These shows work to bring the talent to the limelight, and industry people need to offer them work."
