Singing reality show Rising Star 3 witnessed some high voltage drama in its Saturday episode when two best friends Shikhar Rastogi and Kunal Bojewar came for the audition round and faced judge Neeti Mohan’s wrath. Here’s what happened.
When Neeti Mohan complimented the two for their dosti and said that the they look straight from the movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Kunal said although he doesn’t have a Sweety in his life, Shikhar’s Sweety is right here on the sets. When Neeti asked him where exactly she was, Kunal dropped the bomb saying Shikhar told him backstage that Neeti ma’am is looking kadak and raapchik in her red saree and he would make her his Sweety.
Neeti was appalled by the choice of words and lashed out at them saying they probably did not realise they were on national television and people were watching them. Neeti continued to blast them saying this kind of cheap words were not allowed on the show and said she was walking out.
The other judges Shankar Mahadevan and Diljit Dosanjh came to Neeti’s support and informed the two that they were disqualified. When the duo got really worried, Neeti revealed it was just a prank and Kunal had planned it.
Many in the Twitter didn’t find the prank in good taste and lashed out at Neeti Mohan and the makers for joking about eve-teasing and #MeToo movement.
