Earlier, the director of Indian Idol 12, Neeraj Sharma spoke to Indian Express about the finale and said, “If there was no pandemic, we would have hosted the finale in a big stadium, and we are confident it would have been a sold-out show. This season has been loved so much and given it’s the last episode, we wanted to do something really special, and thus the 12-hour episode came in place.”
Adding further, he said, “The high ratings also prove that the audience is still hooked on to the show. This is going to be the last time they see their favourites perform, and we hope they really like the finale episode.”
Congratulations, Pawandeep Rajan. Very well deserved!
