Even the contestants won’t understand when they have performed well and when they haven’t if we keep praising them.”
“It’s very natural to make mistakes on the stage. You can’t make everything perfect. Thoda flaws hai toh bhi chalega (It’s ok even if there are some flaws). These flaws make the show interesting. Some contestants are born talented; some work hard and learn. A few instantly get success while a few of them shine later,” added Sonu Nigam.
Sonu Nigam additionally reveals why he doesn’t select many actuality exhibits to be part of. He mentioned, “You won’t see me in every other show. There are reasons for which I say yes to only a few shows. This is not because I am old school. But I am in the right school. I have grown up seeing my seniors practising hours after hours, dedicating their lives to music, honing skills. And I learned from them.”
