According to an interview given to Bollywood Hungama, Indian Idol 12 host Aditya Narayan said, “With all due respect to Amitji, it is never easy to honour the legacy of a legend in an hour or two. But we always try our level best to put on a great show especially given the circumstances. Due to the pandemic, we were shooting in Daman with a limited team and crew, limited rehearsals, different set etc. Still week after week, we are putting out fresh episodes where most other channels are playing re-runs of their content.”
“Amitji has graced the show on multiple occasions and has always praised our contestants as well as our team. This time also he was lavish in his praise. In fact, he was kind enough to share so many personal stories on Kishore da, and we enjoyed and cherished each one. If he wasn’t happy with certain aspects of the show, he could have just told us during the shoot, and we would have been more than happy to try and accommodate his inputs,” Aditya Narayan added.
