Amul Star Voice of India directed by Gajendra Singh( the master of Indian Reality Tv shows) is in some kind of trouble. Apparently Alka Yagnik, one among the five judges of Voice of India has decided to call it quits from the music talent hunt show.
Alka Yagnik says that her reason for quitting the show are the constant altercations on the show regarding views about the contestants performances on the stage. Alka feels that having such constant fights with fellow judges is not good for her image and has therefore
decided that she no longer wants to continue her association with Amul Star Voice of India.
Why the fight?
Sources say that, “Aadesh, Jatin and Lalit were of the opinion that singers today do not have the range of yesteryear’s maestros. This also mars music directors’ creativity. Alka and Abhijeet however were of the opinion that the music directors today do not have the talent that the people in the golden era had. This led to an unpleasant debate. Alka felt that the music directors were being unfair.”
Supposedly Aadesh Shrivastava was angry with Gajendra singh for calling Alka Yagnik as the melody queen.As he believed that no one other than Lata Mangeshkar should be referred to by that title.
An exasperated Alka says, “Unfortunate as it may be, I have decided to quit. There is too much heat there, the arguments and the noise only gets uglier. Everybody forever is trying to prove their point.”
“I don’t want to name any particular name but I have really had it. Healthy arguments are welcome but I feel people should not have crossed the line. People have started disrespecting each other. The friendships I have maintained over years are more important than a TV show and some money. Koi majburi nahin hai. I was excited about grooming new talent but this is too distasteful. I’d rather save my relationship with people rather than witnessing so much chillum-chilli,” Alka adds.
How have the makers of the show taken to her decision to quit? She says, “I am quitting gracefully without any hard feelings. The makers are upset about it and have been requesting me not to do it but I must quit. In real life, I have been a fighter but this is something I can’t handle.”
The sweet and dignified Alka Yagnik was surely the jaan of Star Voice Of India and surely her fans are going to miss her absence on the show. “It’s unfortunate as we had some talented contestants, but I cannot judge participants at the cost of my dignity,” Alka says.
