Mumbai: Recently, Singer Amit Kumar revealed that he was pressured into praising the contestants during an Indian Idol special episode. Now singer Sunidhi Chauhan has come forward with her own criticism and revelations regarding Indian Idol.

Sunidhi Chauhan revealed that she parted ways with the show as she was asked to praise the contestants. She said, “Not exactly this ki sabko karna hai but yes, we all were told to praise. That was the basic thing. And so, I couldn’t go on. I couldn’t do what they wanted and I had to part ways. Hence, today, I am not judging any reality show.”

She further said, “I think it is done to seek attention. I think it is required to be done to hold your audience. Guess it works. Some of them still do work hard but the instant fame affects them psychologically. It’s a simple case of acquiring too much too soon. Not the contestants’ fault, it’s simply because the name of the game is TRPs.”

Sunidhi Chauhan used to be a judge on Indian Idol Season 5 and 6.

Earlier, Amit Kumar who appeared on the show as a special guest on Indian Idol  Kishore Kumar special, said, “Frankly, I wanted to stop the episode. I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise kamana hai. I was told jo jaisa bhi gaaye usko uplift karna hai because it’s a tribute to Kishore da. I thought it will be a homage to my father. But once there, I just followed what I was asked to do. I had told them to give me portions of the script in advance, but nothing of that sort happened”
