He’s unhappy with the channel’s decision to rope in another judge
BOMBAY TIMES (October 5, 2011)
Music director Anu Malik is angry and he believes he has every right to be so. Malik signed up for Zee TV’s upcoming celebrity singing reality show — Star Ya Rockstar thinking he was the only judge on the show. However, now there’s buzz that the channel has roped in his former friend, Alisha Chinai to be the second judge on it.
From what we hear, the man has been doing everything in his power to remain the only judge on the show and is now furious at the thought of having to share the panel with another; least of all his sparring partner Alisha Chinai against whom he had filed a defamation suit a few years back! An exasperated Anu says, “While signing on the dotted line of my contract, I had told the Zee team that I want to be the one and only judge on the show. I was brought on board for my expertise and superior knowledge in music. I am upset that they have another judge on the show. Chalo thank God it’s Alisha!”
Alisha on the other hand, is said to be pretty relaxed and is taking these developments within her stride. “I am not surprised, Anu loves to hog the limelight”, she quips.
Whether Malik manages to get his way once again is yet to be seen but given the past history between the two judges, this combination is bound to be combustible! Singing on national television for the very first time will be: Chhavi Mittal, Manish Paul, Mansi Parekh, Neha Marda, Ragini Khanna, More >
