A contestant's story about how his wife left him due to his drinking habit left the judges on India's Got Talent emotional.
A new promo for an upcoming episode of the reality TV show India's Got Talent shows the judges being amazed by a singer's performance and then getting emotional over his tragic life story.
In the promo clip shared by Sony Entertainment Television on their official Instagram channel, contestant Rajeev Chamba comes in front of the judges--Shilpa Shetty, Badshah, Manoj Muntashir, and Kirron Kher--to perform.
As Rajeev reveals that his wife left him because of some of his 'bad habits', the video montage shows him drinking alcohol, implying that his wife left him due to his drinking habit. He then goes on to perform the famous song Laayi Bhi Na Gayi and the judges are seen getting emotional at his performance.
As his performance ends, Shilpa applauds him and says, "Jab koi toote hue dil se gaata hai, usme itni taaqat hoti hai ki woh dilon ko jod sake (When someone sings with a broken heart, it has the power to mend hearts too)." The four judges are then seen giving Rajeev a standing ovation after his performance.
