The competition is heating up in Indian Idol 12. The singing reality show will be seeing eliminations from this weekend as judges continue to score the contestants and audience votes for their favourite singers to keep them in.
In the recent episode, producer Ekta Kapoor and Jeetendra arrived on the sets. Ekta’s new show The Married Woman has launched on OTT and she spoke about it in detail. Jeetendra too joined her as they encouraged the contestants by praising them for their performances.
However, contestant Sawai Bhatt was stopped midway as he performed to Haal Kya Hai Dilon Ka song, which was originally picturised on Jeetendra. The reason why Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani interrupted while he performed was that he kept forgetting the lyrics of the song. The two judges gave Sawai an opportunity to start again from the top but he forgot lyrics during his second run as well. When it came to commenting on Sawai’s performance, Himesh and Vishal said that if it were to them then Sawai would be facing the danger of elimination. They insisted the audience vote for him so that he continues to remain in the show.
After his performance ended, Ekta said that the song is a favourite of hers and her father’s and encouraged Sawai by saying that mistakes happen all the time and he should learn from them instead of beating himself over it.
