Amit Kumar, the ’80s and 90’s popular Bollywood singer, will return in an upcoming episode of Indian Idol season 13. The episode will be a tribute to his late father, the music legend Kishore Kumar. In the past, Amit also appeared in the Indian Idol season 12. However, he expressed that he didn’t have a good experience last time and doubted the skills of the contestants.
Indian Idol has been one of the top singing reality shows airing on Sony TV. On Thursday evening, Sony TV uploaded a brand new promo of the upcoming episode on their official Instagram account. In the video, we could see Amit appearing on the show’s sets.
After Bidipta sings one of Kishore da’s legendary songs, Amit comes to the stage and tunes two lines of his song Keh Do Ki Tum from Tezaab along with her.
He also appeared in the last season as a special guest. Later he shared his experience with the media that he was said to praise individual contestants regardless of how they performed. But many fans criticized the performance of the contestants saying they have ruined Kishore da’s songs. In an interview, when asking Amit Kumar about such a reaction from the netizens, he said,
“I did what I was told. I was told sabko praise kamana hai. I was told jo jaisa bhi gaaye usko uplift karna hai because it’s a tribute to Kishore da. I thought it would be a homage to my father. But once there, I just followed what I was asked to do. I had told them to give me portions of the script in advance, but nothing of that sort happened, ”
