Himani Kapoor, who recently entered the Champions league in Star Plus’ reality show Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar has been at the receiving end from judge Farah Khan.
The buzz from the sets of the reality show is that Himani, who had been performing flawlessly for the last few weeks, wanted to get into the Champions league according to her own whims and fancies. Two weeks back, when the Champions were to sing for the Comedy round, Himani had clearly told her Champion mates not to vote for her as she thought she was not fit enough to sing a comic song. However, regardless of a mediocre performance last week, Himani convinced the Champions to vote for her, and ultimately made it to the Champions side much to the disappointment of the deserving candidate Amey Date.
Well, Farah Khan, being a tough nut to crack, left no stone unturned and snubbed Himani for influencing her mates to vote for or against her, as per her wish. In her defense, a teary-eyed Himani defended herself and said that all her actions had been misunderstood by Farah.
When Telly Buzz talked to Himani to get to know more about this matter, the singer argues, “There is nothing that I have manipulated. Before the Comedy round, Abhijit Sawant came up to me and asked me whether I was all set to render a comic song and move into the Champions side today, to which I replied I don't think I will perform well, as girls generally do not do well in comedy rounds. I added saying, I do not wish to join Champions league today. In this very episode, the champions chose Amit Sana to enter their league. In the next episode, when they had to choose between Amey Date who had entered just weeks before and me, the Champions thought that I had been giving consistent performances from the beginning and so chose me. So what is wrong with their thought process?” When asked about the flak that she received from Farah, Himani says, “Farah felt that I was playing games with the Champions and misunderstood me. If I had gone on to explain my position, then she might have thought that I am justifying myself. So I did not argue much”.
Talking about her future in the reality show, Himani says, “I am 99% sure that I will get eliminated this week. But I know that I have done nothing wrong and that God is watching my actions. So I will rather concentrate on my singing and not worry about anything else”.
