Anu Malik, Farah Khan and Sonu Nigam to Return as Judges of Indian Idol Season 9


Video: Indian Idol 9 press conference

Indian Idol season 9 was announced at a press conference held recently at a hotel in Kolkata. Present at the meet was Anu Malik, Farah Khan. Sonu Nigam was unwell and hence could not attend the conference. The show which began in 2004 with Anu Malik, Farah Khan and Sonu Nigam will again see the trio back in the judges’ seat.


Speaking at the event, Anu Malik said “The show has been responsible for bringing forth many talented singers. Monali Thakur who could not make it far in Indian Idol season 2 caught my eyes during the piano round. And look now how she has gone on to become such a popular singer. Not only the participants but the judges also receive great amount of love from the people. When I got down at the airport, people asked me who will be the judges this time. When they heard about the three of us, they said that they were looking forward to the show. This is what is so special about the show”.

Farah Khan who joked about herself for judging the maximum reality shows on small screen said “Indian Idol will always remain. It was one of the earliest reality shows. Now many shows have come up but this has an important place in people’s hearts”.


Auditions will begin from Kolkata and then will continue to Delhi and Mumbai. Get ready for another dose of great singing and loads of entertainment on the small screen again!!
