Aditya Narayan points apology for his ‘Alibaug’ remark


In the recent episode of Indian Idol 12, host and singer Aditya Narayan asked one of the contestants, ‘hum kya Alibaug se aaye hai kya?’, and this stirred up a controversy. MNS Chitrapat Sena chief Ameya Khopkar called him out, the channel and the makers of the reality show and demanded an apology.

In a Facebook live video, Khopkar was heard saying, “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.”

Aditya took to his Facebook page and apologised with a note. He wrote, “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.”
