Indian Idol controversy- What Abhijeet Bhattacharya did?
A controversy happens with Abhijeet Bhattacharya after performing in Indian Idol with Amit Kumar.
Bollywood's popular 90s singers Abhijeet Bhattacharya and Udit Narayan were featured on a recent episode of Indian Idol 12; after that, controversy erupted around the comments of another guest.
Amit Kumar, the son of legendary singer Kishore Kumar, had alleged that he'd been told to praise the contestants regardless of his actual thoughts about their performances. Abhijeet, in an interview, said that he prefers to give Amit the benefit of the doubt and implied that his comments had been misrepresented.
He told Peeping Moon, "There is no controversy. I spoke to Amit Kumar Ji after the incident. Firstly, he didn't say the statement on camera. It was neither a video nor audio. People trusted what print media told them. It was blown out of proportion unnecessarily."
In an interview with a leading daily, Amit had said, "I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise karnahai. I was told jo KaisaBhi Gaye usko uplift Karna hai (I was told to praise everyone and to uplift everyone, no matter how they sang) because it's a tribute to Kishore da."
His comments led to controversy and attracted conflicted reactions from the industry.
Abhijeet has sung a large number of Hindi songs. Work from the film Baaghi, composed by Anand-Milind, is among his songs. This film featured the songs Ek Chanchal Shokh Hasina, Chandni Raat Hai, and Har Kasam Se Badi Hai. Following it, other chartbusters from films like Khiladi and Shola Aur Shabnam, both of which were box office successes.
