Singing reality show ‘Indian Idol 12’ host Aditya Narayan has been in the news. And now, he took to his Instagram and apologized for his comment on Alibaug made on the Indian Idol 12 show.
As per the reports, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had asked the makers to apologize. They had also warned the show and channel that action will be taken against them if they don’t apologize.
Aditya Narayan took to his Instagram and penned down a apology note, besides also shared a video apologizing for his statements, “With a humble heart and folded hands I want to apologise to the people of Alibaug and everyone who has been hurt by my sentence on a recent episode of Indian Idol that I’m currently hosting. The intention was never to hurt anyone. I have immense love and respect for Alibaug. My own sentiments are connected with the place, it’s people and this soil.”
He said”A Hindi channel has a singing reality show, I am not going to name it, but Aditya Narayan hosts the show, where he has made a derogatory comment about our Maharashtra’s Alibaug. I have not seen the show, but I got complaints from many people from Maharashtra. People on these Hindi channels so easily say, ‘Hum Kya Alibaug se aaye hai kya?’, and I think they are not aware of the rich cultural heritage that comes from Alibaug. If we, people of Alibaug, get upset, they don’t know what we can do, we won’t let the show take place. With this comment they have insulted us.”
Ameya Khopkar further reveal that he had informed Sony channel, the makers of the show and Aditya’s father, legendary singer Udit Narayan about this matter and asked for an apology on behalf of the people of Alibaug’.
