Sonu Nigam has always been one to speak his mind on social media and even otherwise. The actor had recently opened up about the controversy regarding Kishore Kumar's son, Amit Kumar's comment on Indian Idol 12 and how it was blown out of proportion. And now, the singer has spoken up once again.

The actor, while talking to ETimes, spoke about the marketing thing that sob stories are when it comes to reality shows. He said, “If they weren’t working (sob stories), it would not be happening so often on reality shows. In the deepest corner of my heart, I feel sob stories are working. It is a marketing thing, and people are not fools. Their hearts are in the right place.” 

In addition, he went on to call out the talent behind some hosts of reality shows and also said that they are talented contestants. Nigam has been a judge on reality shows earlier, however, he mentioned that he is no one to comment on them. Nonetheless, he did mention that they are doing well and getting good viewership while the singers are phenomenal.

As for getting back to reality shows, he says, “If I feel I can contribute to a show and they come with an offer, why not? If I feel I am a misfit, I won’t do it.”  

Earlier, Nigam had urged everyone to put an end to the controversy around Amit's appearance and comment on Indian Idol 12, while also mentioning that it is true that no one can do justice to Kishore Kumar's songs.

Faraz300000 11 months ago I strongly believe all of these controversies are created purposely in order to improve the ratings...and its working.. This week the show managed to get into the Top 5.
They are following the "big boss " mantra. And i wont be surprised at all if we see indian idol become a Big boss like crap where contestants will be shown living together in an isolated place...arguing, fighting with one another... Non stop unrealistic drama like tv serials
Indian idol is slowly becoming more drama oriented.. As this is their only way to boost ratings.
Because people have perfectly realized how worthless and meaningless the show since the start the show failed to give bollywood quality singers...Abhijeet Sawant,Sreeram,Prashant Tamang and many more failed miserably..
Neha kakkar is the only execption because she may be a horrible singer..but she is damn attractive and can do some sexy moves and this is the reason of her success. She is even more popular outside india, not for singing but for her looks
