In a recent Indian Idol season 12 episode Singer Amit Kumar Ganguly son of Kishore Kumar was invited as a guest. The episode was a tribute to the legendary singer and actor Kishore Kumar aka ‘Kishore da’. Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and Anu Malik along with contests of the show were seen carolling melodies of Kishore Kumar.

Amit Kumar shared memories and moments with his father with the participants. After the show was aired the entire Indian Idol team was criticised and faced outrage on the internet for quavering songs of ‘Kishore Kumar’ and not providing justice to them.

Amit Kumar finally decides to open up about the episode. “The truth is that nobody can sing like Kishore Kumar, he was a mountain of a personality and man of many faces. The youngsters of today have no idea about him, they just know ‘Roop Tera Mastana’ from ‘Aradhna’. I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise karna 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.” Amit kumar said in an interview with E-times.

Amit was asked about his experience about to show and why he was called as a guest to which he replied, “Look, everyone needs money. My father was also particular about money. They gave me the price I demanded and I went, why would I have left it? But it’s okay. I have full respect for the show and its judges and participants. It’s just one of those things that happen sometimes. There are so many good films and so many bad films. There are so many good songs and bad songs.”. Amit was asked about the criticism the episode got on the internet and what’s his opinion about it, he replied as  “Haan, mujhe malum hai. I didn’t enjoy the episode at all.”

When the episode was aired, internet was filled with trolls and hates, Neha Kakkar one of the judge of the show was primarily seen targeted by netizens.
