Indian Idol 11 is one of the most popular singing reality shows of television. Not only the contestants, but the host and judges too add to the fun on the show and keep the audience entertained.
The trio of Neha Kakkar, Vishal Dadlani and Anu Malik was brought back this year as the judging panel -- the latter despite #MeToo allegations against him.
From what we know, Neha Kakkar had to face an awkward situation recently during the shoot of the episodes. A viral promo shows a contestant grabbing Kakkar and forcibly kissing her on the cheek.
The video shows one of the contestants getting a few gifts for Neha. As she comes to the stage to receive them, and gives him a side hug, he plants a kiss on her cheek.
Anu Malik looks visibly shocked even as Aditya tries to stop the contestant.
Neha then walks away soonafter -- as if she isn’t too pleased with the gesture.
Neha Kakkar fans are quite angry with the incident and have been slamming the contestant.
A person wrote, “Kissing anyone without their prior consent is sexual assault."
Another said, "Badtamij insaan you are doggy.”
