This is related to again Himesh Reshammiya, the composer whom most love to hate. There were many points in the show which is actually putting a question mark – Was the mentor actually present there on the sets during the whole show?

Now let us just go through few very minor details that happened in the show. Himesh was never shown commenting on the awesome performances rest alone others. He did not even make a single comment on the performance of his favorite Aneek Dhar, who wowed everyone with his performance. Neither was he shown ever to interact with the mentors, except during the Josh Gharana performance rounds. Otherwise all shots of Himesh were solo shots.

If you watch the performances by Harpreet, Aneek, Nirupama, Raja and Joy and watch the aerial shots, it’s clearly evident that Himesh is not there on his seat. There are just four mentors sitting there instead of usual five. Also after Yalgaar Gharana contestant Poonam’s performance, Ismail Durbar shakes hands with Shekhar for agreeing to sign the contestant in their band. The hand-shake took place with both of them in their seats - Himesh was not present in between them, as he usually is. In one of the shots Shekhar is also seen sitting on the Rock Gharana mentors chair!! Himesh seems to have taken this opportunity to prove himself as an actor after the huge success of his film Aap ka Suroor by giving in some best solo shots which gave us a wrong notion that he was actually present in the shot.

So what is the real story behind all this? Is it that Himesh came late for shooting and reached only during the shooting of the Josh gharana? And is it Zee who decided to go for some extra editing to make the show look such? This also brings the question as to the actual reality of these reality shows. It’s now very clear - that for all the decisions these shows gets to make, viewers every week make an even more important one. They choose whether to continue to invest themselves in a show that seems more and more random and unfair.
