We know that ex-Idol contestants Prajakta Shukre and Abhijeet Sawant will be the hosts of the audition phase for the fifth season of Sony’s Indian Idol that starts from April 26th.However, the buzz was that the two were to be put on a scanner, and the decision on whether they would continue to host the show beyond the audition phase would be taken based on their performance.As of now, it is confirmed that Prajakta Shukre will not be seen hosting Idol beyond the audition phase.Prajakta tells us, “I had been contracted only till the audition phase of Indian Idol. If they want me to host certain episodes of Idol in future, I will be happy to do it”.
A little birdie tells us, “Hussain Kuwajerwala who is very popular as host, will now be brought in to host Indian Idol from the studio rounds, along with Abhijeet Sawant. He will be starting shoot from tomorrow”.
For the uninitiated, even in the previous season, Meiyang Chang and Deepali Kishore hosted the audition phase, but it was Hussain who took over from Deepali from the Studio round onwards.
We tried calling Hussain Kuwajerwala, but he remained unavailable.
Namit Sharma, Business Head, Wizcraft said, “Nothing has been decided as of now. You have to call me tomorrow for a confirmation”.
It’s time to be happy for the loyal Hussain fans, we guess!!
