MUMBAI: Composer Anu Malik is co-judging Sony TV’s Indian Idol with singer Neha Kakkar and singer-composer Vishal Dadlani for the first time, but he says that when he is with them, it feels like he has known them for long and that they are one big family now.
Singing-based reality show Indian Idol is in its 10th season.
During one of the auditions, Malik cracked a joke that caused Dadlani to fall off his chair and hurt his elbows.
Talking about the incident, Malik said, ‘There was an incident when a singer was auditioning. At one point, when I said something, Vishal broke into laughter and fell off the chair. He fell down and hurt himself.’
Dadlani said, ‘I couldn’t take what Anu had just said’ and laughed his heart out. ‘It is amazing to share such moments with them. We make eye contact and he instantly understands what I am thinking and trying to say.’
Asked about his co-judges, Malik said, ‘When I am with Vishal and Neha, it feels like I know them from 100 years. It feels as if we have done all the Indian Idol seasons together.’
