Making a tough choice

Vishal Dadlani and Shreya Ghoshal, who are currently judging the reality show ‘Indian Idol Junior’ along with Shekhar Ravjiani, were recently reduced to tears.

Apparently, this was because they had to choose a finalist between a brother and sister. Selecting the top ten young singers of the country is a strenuous task and when they realised they would have to choose between two siblings, they couldn’t control their emotions and eventually, shed a few tears, says a source. Shreya admits that eliminating kids is the toughest part about being on the show.

“I just do not like this part of the show, when we need to say no to the contestants — specially to those cute and little ones. It really feels sad,” she says.
