Ramayan: Kavita Krishnamurthy and Suresh Wadkar Took a Pay Cut To Sing For The Show (Deets Inside).
Talking about the incident, Kavita Krishnamurthy revealed on Indian Idol, “As it is, when I sing in front of people I start getting nervous, I am not a stage person. At that point, I really felt like telling Hemant Da (Hemanto Mukherjee) that its better I leave as I wouldn’t be able to do it. After some time door opened and, ‘Devi Ji’ Lata ji entered in a white saree and I swear, I can’t tell you, but my heart skipped a beat. During the final rehearsals, I completely forgot my lines because I was lost looking at Lata ji and how she sings on the mic.” Anjali Gaikwad, Former Indian Idol Contestant, Accused of Scamming on Instagram by Popular Influencer.
