The weekend episode of Indian Idol 12 featured director / singer Amit Kumar as a special guest and was dedicated to legendary singer Kishore Kumar. The episode paid tribute to the legendary singer’s 100 greatest songs. While it was a great episode, contestants and judges showed Himesh Reshammiya and Neha Kakkar most popular songs by Kishore Kumar.
Internet users didn’t fully enjoy the episode and took to social media to share their experiences. Internet users took it seriously that Judges Himesh and Neha were singing the golden melodies of Kishore and the songs did not do it justice.
One user wrote: “Neha Kakkar does whatever you want with her songs, please don’t even think about spoiling Kishore Kumar Sir’s songs.”
