It's always beautiful to see young love blossom!! And as the Grand Finale of Indian Idol 4 takes off tonight, we hear about a similar affair possibly brewing between the finalists, 'The Singing Soldier' Kapil Thapa and 'The Rocker' Sourabhee Debbarma.
Readers will remember an episode on Idol when anchor Meiyang Chang had jokingly asked Sourabhee, why she chose Kapil over him, and she had smartly replied that she did not want a child with small eyes.
However, when we spoke to Sourabhee about her reported link-up with Kapil, she was at her diplomatic best and quipped, "We are good friends, and there are certain things which are to be kept confidential. You will come to know only after Indian Idol is over".
For the uninitiated, the popular Sony singing reality show has been famous for the linkup stories between contestants of earlier seasons too. A lot was written last year about the possible relationship between Meiyang Chang and Deepali Kishore, which actually acted as a catalyst, for they were brought back this year to host auditions together. Going down memory lane, Indian Idol two runner-up, NC. Karunya was also linked to the then contestant Antara.
Coming back to Sourabhee and Kapil, we just hope they come out in the open and speak the truth, once they are done with the nail biting tension of the Idol Finale!!
