Dost, dost na raha…is the first song that comes to everyone’s mind whenever we talk about breaking a friend’s trust. As it did come to our minds when we heard this piece of news. Two contestants namely Arvind and Asit met during the auditions of Indian Idol 5. They both shared the same mission and passion — music and to become the singing icon of the year. Everyone who saw them together always addressed them as Jai and Veeru, one of the most popular jodis (couple) on screen in Sholay.
But as Indian Idol moved into its second phase of selection, something happened which no one could ever imagine. During one of the theatre rounds, the jury decided to have a faceoff between Arvind and Asit on the song Dhan te nan from the movie Kaminey, assuming they are thick friends and wouldn’t mind being pitted against each other. But then the jury was proved wrong. To their surprise and dismay, post the performance Arvind made a startling statement – ‘I don’t care about friendship, I have come here to be an Indian Idol and not for friendship.’
This sudden revelation by Arvind not only surprised Asit, who took him as a great friend, but also everyone present on the set.Though the friendhip of Arvind and Asit didn’t succeed, we just hope that their song at least makes it to the hearts of billions.
