Singer Neha Kakkar, who is currently judging Indian Idol 11 is known to be exceptionally loving and emotional on the show. In a recent heartwarming gesture, she gave a contestant of her show Rs 1 Lakh so he could celebrate Diwali with his loved ones.
Diwas Kumar, one of the contestants from the show shared that his family and friends from Jharkhand have showed him immense support ever since his audition was successful. While talking to the judges, Diwas broke down, overwhelmed by emotions and spoke about how he hasn’t been home in 6 years. He found himself working at a factory during Diwali and never really celebrated, listening to the crackers bursting outside.
Really touched by the soulful singing & life-stories of these talented youngsters on Indian Idol.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 22, 2019
Rahul, Chelsi, Diwas and Sunny come from different parts of the country but have the same passion & dedication for music despite all odds.
I’m sure they’ll go a long way. pic.twitter.com/dNqNd2iGmk
