The knicker knocked out Mika Singh. Days after he pulled down the pants of fellow contestant, actor Jay Bhanushali on Iss Jungle Se Bachao, the singer was voted out of the show. But he seems to have gained what he aimed at. Easy publicity! On Tuesday, an otherwise quiet Jay lost his cool when Mika pulled down his pants in public. He later apologized.
Controversy often makes up for talent. Mika realised that early. Only he was made to learn that more on national TV now. After Anaida scored the show’s anthem composition round, Wednesday saw him lose a singing contest to actor Chitrashi Rawat! Antics therefore, made more sense to get noticed. And Mika had always banked on those — from kissing Rakhi Sawant to flirting with judges on Jhalak Dikhla Ja. Even in the jungle he missed no opportunity to get even with Rakhi, and then got down to kissing Negar Khan and abusing Chitrashi.
Sources say the celebs misbehave under channel instructions. Sony marketing head Danish Khan refutes that saying the participants are too far away to be ‘influenced’. Evicted participant Fiza seconds that and adds that the channel can still draw a line on what to air. “Hungry, frustrated people would do strange things. But some decency is expected of adults.”
