Neha Kakkar


Indian Idol 11 judge Neha Kakkar was recently mocked for her height and talent by popular comedians Gaurav Gera and Kiku Sharda on the TV show, Dr. Pran Lele. Neha then took to social media to slam the TV show for body-shamming her. Kiku Sharda and Gaurav Gera were seen in the characters of their show and address a short girl as Neha Kankar. Kiku tells the short girl that she earns money by singing ‘Kuch Bhi’. It’s not just her face but also her music that’s made fun of. Neha and her brother, Tony Kakkar, expressed being hurt by these comments on Neha from their Instagram accounts. Gaurav Gera has now come out and apologised to Neha Kakkar in an interview with TOI.

Anu Malik had withdrawn his name as the judge of the show after growing outcry against him over allegations of sexual harassment, levelled by singer Sona Mohapatra. Singers Neha Bhasin and Shweta Pandit, too, had accused him of sexual misconduct in the past. Now, singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya has replaced composer Anu Malik as the judge on Indian Idol 11.

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein


Yeh Hai Mohabbatein is one of the most-watched shows on television. Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel had impressed fans as Ishita and Raman in the show. The show will now bid adieu to its viewers.
