“Aap Mumbai Jaa Rahe Hain,” these five words are used to make someone’s dream come true while breaking some hearts. These five words became the identity of the first singing reality show in India – Indian Idol. The show has recently finished season 14, which has been won by Vaibhav Gupta. A boy from Kanpur won a prize money of 25 lakh and a luxurious car.

However, while Vaibhav won Indian Idol 14, there have been many success stories from the singing reality show where the contestants did not win but are doing great in life. The frontrunner of this group is Neha Kakkar, who has judged the show and is one of the most popular singers who enjoys a net worth of crores. Neha was eliminated from the show in the initial episodes of her season. However, she later even judged Indian Idol!

Another contestant who did not win the show but the National Award was Monali Thakur. He won the prestigious award for her song Moh Moh Ke Dhaage from Dum Laga Ke Haisha. There are more names like Rahul Vaidya, who ruled the stage shows and concerts.

However, while the above names at least had a chance to participate, there were some who were rejected in the auditions. However, they now have built an empire for themselves, and while some of them enjoy a net worth of 300 crore, others charge millions for their performances, sometimes as high as 10 crore! Check out this list.

5. Asees Kaur – 3 – 5 crore

Asees shot to fame with her song Madhanya, which became a hot pick of the wedding season. Later, her songs Bolna from Kapoor & Sons, Bandeya from Simmba, Raataan Lambiyan from Shershah & Ve Kamleya from Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani were rage. The singer has earned a fortune worth 3 – 5 crore and charges 20 – 35 lakh for a stage show.

4. Vishal Mishra – 5 – 6 crore

The singer and music composer went to the show not once but twice. For the first time, he was rejected by Anu Malik, who told him to riyaaz more; the second time, he cleared the audition round but was later eliminated from the next round. The performer enjoys a net worth of around 5 – 6 crore.

You can watch his audition video here, which was shared by Sony TV’s official YouTube channel.

3. Raghu Ram – 35 crore

Yes, the internet broke down the day this revelation was made. Roadies creator Raghu Ram auditioned for the show once upon a time. However, as soon as his clip went viral, he clarified that he was planted by the production guys to pick up a fight with the judges. However, this revealed the most asked question about Indian Idol as well – Is the show scripted? Indeed, it was since Raghu’s audition aired as a normal contestant. The actor, producer, and host enjoys a net worth of around 35 crore, according to many sources.

Here is a video of the incident shared by the YouTube channel TheAvvvrilFan.

2. Ayushmann Khurrana – 82 crore

Probably one of the most successful rejected contestants from Indian Idol. The Pani Da Rang singer and actor Ayushmann Khurrana also auditioned for Indian Idol once but was obviously rejected. However, he later went to Roadies and even won the second season! The actor enjoys a net worth of 82 crore and charges around 10 crore per film, almost 3900% higher than the winning prize of Indian Idol 14. While he got rejected on this show, he got selected along with his brother Aparshakti Khurrana for a singing show on V. Check out their audition video!

1. Kapil Sharma – 290 crore

Yes, we know this is shocking, but we also know how much Kapil loves singing. The comedian, in an interview, revealed that he wanted to be a part of any reality show, but he got rejected by Indian Idol. However, he made a mark for himself after he appeared in the Great Indian Laughter Challenge. The comedian enjoys a net worth of 290 crore and charges as much as 5 crore for a live show! Also, today, he performs for his group of friends, including Aamir Khan. Have a look at this viral video from a Diwali party!
