Abhijeet Sawant said, ‘The time of extra elements was less in our time, but today these elements are being given more relevance. They should give challenging work to the contestants. When you work more on other elements, the singing level goes down.

Mumbai. After the popular singing reality show ‘Indian Idol 12’ Amit Kumar Controversy has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. ‘Indian Idol 12’ organized a special episode dedicated to Kishore Kumar which was based on 100 songs of the legendary singer. Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar was made a special judge to grace this special episode. After the episode, Amit Kumar said that he was forced to praise the contestants even if they didn’t like their performance.

Singer Abhijeet Sawant, the winner of the first Indian Idol in 2005, has come forward and talked about the change in the format of the show and the Amit Kumar controversy. Abhijit Sawant said that Amit Kumar could have expressed his concern in the show then and there and he did not need to wait for the show to air.

Abhijeet Sawant told ‘The Times of India’, ‘I think if Amit Kumar ji had mentioned even once that he didn’t like the content, singing or the show could have been done in a better way, I am sure. That the creative team would definitely listen to him. He is such a famous singer of our country and he is in a position to tell the makers what he is feeling. I don’t think it is right to speak after the episode has aired. In an interview to Bollywood Life, Abhijeet Sawant talks about the ‘extra element’ added to the show and how the focus has been diverted from singing.

Abhijit Sawant said, ‘The time of extra elements used to be less in our time, but today these elements are being given more relevance. They should give challenging work to the contestants. When you work more on other elements, the singing level goes down. This is my biggest issue. We should spend more time on singing.
