Indian Idol contestant recounts humiliation and abuse on the show, Mini Mathur reacts

The ex aspirant revealed that even one of the contestants was slapped by a crew member.

Nishant Kaushik, who claims to have reached the third round of the audition process in the 2012 edition of the singing reality show, Indian Idol, wrote a series of tweets in which he described in great detail the ‘abuse’ certain contestants were subjected to.

He wrote, “(Indian Idol) is a perfect platform to destroy your dreams as opposed to its common perception as a breeding ground for talent,”

He went on to describe how contestants were made to stand in queues for hours without access to food, water or toilets. To step out of line to have some water could risk in them losing their spot. He said even one of the contestants was slapped by a crew member. Check out his tweets

Reacting on this, former Indian Idol host Mini Mathur tweeted

“This sucks,” Mini Mathur, who has hosted the show between 2004-07 and once again in 2012, wrote on Twitter. “Thanks for forwarding me this thread. I wasn’t part of the 2012 season but I know most of what he has articulated is known to happen on reality tv. One of the reasons I bowed out. This incessant need to create false emotion. RIP Organic, pure TV.”

Well, now we wonder how the makers of the reality show will react to the allegations.

Never miss a chance to be amazed by the glitz and the glamour of the Entertainment industry.
