On August 15, Indian Idol 12 will telecast a 12-hour grand finale. This week’s semi-finale episode will feature Karan Johar, who will be gracing the show ahead of the season’s conclusion. Contestants will perform songs from his great flicks, which will surprise the filmmaker.
The semi-final programme, titled ‘Karan Johar Special,’ would also have presenter Aditya Narayan engaging in a lighthearted conversation with the guests. With chart-topping songs in all of his films, KJo, as he is affectionately known, will go on to tell more about how he selects music for his movies. Karan will be joined by judges Anu Malik, Sonu Kakkar, and Himesh Reshammiya for a lively discussion.
Aside from the award-winning director, Indian Idol 12 will have a special visitor in attendance. The crew will greet Sahdev Dirdo, the viral youngster from ‘Bachpan Ka Pyaat.’ Aditya shared an Insta reel of Sahdev and the top six finalists doing the same popular rendition. He captioned it, “#BachpanKaPyaar with the OG cutie Sahadev & #IndianIdol team ??.”
For the uninformed, Sahdev is from Chhattisgarh’s Sukma area. Recently, an old video of him singing “Jaane meri jaaneman bachpan ka pyaar” went viral on social media, with celebrities repurposing the tune to make hilarious movies. The song was originally used on reels by Bharti Singh, Kapil Sharma, Badshah, and Aastha Gill, among others. Sahdev was recently honoured by the state’s chief minister, Bhupesh Baghel, for his popularity. Badshah, a rapper, has expressed interest in working with him.
Pawandeep Rajan, Shanmukhapriya, Mohd Danish, Arunita Kanjilal, Nihal Turao, and Sayli Kamble are in a sprint to the final.
