The upcoming weekend episode of Indian Idol 12, which will pay tribute to the legendary Kishore Kumar by holding a special of his 100 greatest songs, will also see the return of Himesh Reshammiya and Neha Kakkar on the judging podium after a prolonged absence. Both Himesh and Neha were missing from the previous couple of episodes after Sony Entertainment Television had shifted base for Indian Idol season 12 to Daman, following the Maharashtra government’s decision to suspend all film and TV shoots in the state, and Anu Mail and lyricist Manoj Muntashir had stepped in to fill to void. While Anu Malik is slated to continue with judging duties, it’s great to see Himesh Reshammiya and Neha Kakkar back, too.
