Emraan shocked, Pritam horrified!
Emraan Hashmi was the celebrity guest for the reality show â€˜Voice Of Indiaâ€™ on Monday, 25 February. While recording, in the middle of the shooting a female member of the audience ran to stage to kiss the serial-kisser on his lips. Whether it was a planned publicity stunt or not is unclear, but the entire turn of events left the judge composer Pritam Chakraborty so upset that he walked out of the show in disgust.
“If the whole thing was planned then all I can say is, the show is digging its own grave,” says the appalled music director Pritam Chakraborty about the bizarre event.
Recalling the embarrassing episode Pritam says, “It was all so sudden and disgusting. Voice Of India is a show about children, and encouraging children’s talent. We can’t have such cheesy behaviour on this show. Also, the Bhatts and Emraan Hashmi were my special guests. I had to make my displeasure very clear. So I did walk out.”
Pritam also added, “Voice Of India has the potential to give us deserving winners. I don’t want it to end up being just another TRP-hungry music show.”
