In the upcoming episode of Indian Idol 12, playback singers Udit Narayan and Abhijeet Bhattacharya will show off a new avatar. The popular singers will be sporting the rapper look, complete with sweatshirts, caps and sunglasses, in support of Indian Idol 12 contestant Danish. On seeing his father in this new look, host Aditya Narayan will be left in crevices.
On Friday, Sony TV’s official person shared a video of Aditya welcoming Udit Narayan and Abhijeet Bhattacharya on stage. Dancing to “Hum dono hai alag alag”, they make a grand entrance in flashy clothes. The duo also indulges in some millennial gestures. Looking at them, Aditya says, “I swear, Papa ko aise kabhi nahi dekha hai maine (I didn’t see my father like that).” To which Udit Narayan replies, “Yo yo”.
The channel’s page captioned the video: “#UditNarayan aur #AbhijeetBhattacharya ki ye epic jodi aur #IdolSawai ki behatareen performance bana degi iss weekend ko awesome! Dekhiye #UditAndAbhijeetSpecial #IndianIdol2020 kal raat 9:30 baje, sirf Sony par!.”
While the contestants will be dedicating their acts to Udit Narayan and Abhijeet Bhattacharya, the acclaimed singers will also join them on stage for a special performance.
The Sony TV reality show has made headlines after Kishore Kumar’s son, Amit Kumar, criticized the talent and even mentioned how to praise the contestants. While Aditya Narayan defended his show, father Udit Narayan also supported him in the media. He said that Aditya was the only one talking about the case because he was “childish”.
Udit also shared that when he saw the episode, he could feel that Amit Kumar was enjoying the performances. “When you agreed to be on the show, you shouldn’t have said such things after you came out. Now I’ve said this and I’ll be dragged into it like Aditya too,” the singer told Aaj Tak He also added that if they mentor young people, they should not be intimidated by the criticism. “We are often invited to watch and polish up new talent. We are also paid for this. This process of learning and teaching continues throughout life. Often we are not too strict on talent for fear that they will be overrun with negativity.”
Indian Idol 12, starring Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani as judges, will air on Sony TV.
