Indian Idol 12 has been making headlines quite often but unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. Host Aditya Narayan has apologised for hurting the sentiments of people after he allegedly made a disparaging remark showing Alibaug in Maharastra in a bad light on the show.

Aditya took to social media and posted a note and also share a video apologising for the remark he made on the show. “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, it’s people and this soil,” he wrote in the apology.

Aditya's apology comes after MNS Chitrapat Sena chief Ameya Khopkar demanded a retraction. In a Facebook live session, Khopkar spoke in Marathi and said, “A Hindi channel has a singing reality show, I am not going to name it, but Aditya Narayan hosts the show, where he has made a derogatory comment about our Maharashtra’s Alibaug. I have not seen the show, but I got complaints from many people from Maharashtra. People on these Hindi channels so easily say, ‘Hum Kya Alibaug se aaye hai kya?’, and I think they are not aware of the rich cultural heritage that comes from Alibaug. If we, people of Alibaug, get upset, they don’t know.
