The new season of Indian Idol is back on Sony television and so is Neha Kakkar, the constant judge on the show for the past few seasons. Interestingly, more than her comments on the show, it is her crying or controversy that has always grabbed the headlines.
Here are a few such most discussed controversies of Neha Kakkar with some having a direct connection to Indian Idol:
The latest controversy- Feud with Falguni Pathak
Falguni Pathak, known as the Garba queen for her hit songs like “Maine Payal Hai Chankayi” and “Meri Chunar Ud Ud Jaye” from the 90s triggered controversy when she shared a few Instagram comments which slammed Neha Kakkar.
As Navratri season was near, the T-series which had the rights to Falguni’s song remixed it in the voice of Neha Kakkar much to the dislike of the netizens who called out the Indian Idol judge for ruining their childhood memories.
From Neha hitting back indirectly at Falguni and the social media users to the latter joining Neha for a stint on Indian Idol this season, it was one of the most discussed controversies in recent times.
Neha reportedly indulged in a PR gimmick with Aditya Narayan during Indian Idol 11
Indian TV shows are such trash that Neha Kakkar and Aditya Narayan announced they were getting married and later admitted, directly in our faces, that its a publicity stunt to 'boost ratings'. Like who says that lmao https://t.co/1JBhd8WypW— spandana (@spandanaonbvd) October 25, 2020
All through Indian Idol 11, Aditya Narayan openly and daringly flirted with Neha Kakkar, and even Aditya’s father Udit Narayan said that he would love to have a daughter-in-law like Neha who is one of the highest-paid singers of today’s times.
Eventually, Neha ended up marrying Rohan Preet Singh while Adi married to his longtime girlfriend and actor Swetha Agarwal confirming that all the acts and blushing from Neha were just a PR stunt.
