Indian Idol 12, Aditya Narayan, Alibag, MNS, Alibaug,

Indian Idol host Aditya Narayan has been grabbing eyeballs for quite some days, but not all for the right reasons. After the Amit Kumar controversy on Indian Idol 12, Aditya Narayan caught attention for his ‘Alibaug’ comment on the show. Apparently, Aditya Naryan spoke about the people of Alibaug in a bad light on the show, and it left MNS irked.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena objected to a line reportedly used by Aditya that depicted Alibaug in a poor light. The political party accused Naryan of making a ‘derogatory remark’ and demanded an apology on the same. MNS Chitrapat Sena chief Ameya Khopkar critisced Narayan’s comment and threatened to stop Indian Idol 12. He said, “They don’t know what we, the people of Alibaug, can do if we get upset. We won’t let the show take place. The comment was very insulting.”

He also reached out to Sony TV, the makers of the Indian Idol 12 and Aditya’s father singer Udit Narayan, and demanded an apology. Now, after receiving backlash, Aditya Narayan has finally issued an apology over the Alibaug row. The singer has apologised to MNS and the people of Alibaug as he did not intend to hurt them.

“With a humble heart and folded hands, I want to apologise to the people of Alibaug and everyone who has been hurt by my sentence on a recent episode of Indian Idol that I’m currently hosting. The intention was never to hurt anyone. I have immense love and respect for Alibaug. My own sentiments are connected with the place, its people and this soil, Aditya wrote in his public apology.

Along with the post he also shared, apologising in Hindi to the janta. “Namaste, I apologise with folded hands to my brothers from Alibaug, whom I have unintentionally hurt with my comments. I hope that you forgive me, and consider this a mistake by your brother,” he expressed in the clip.
