It"s just three days left for Indian Idol season 5 to hit airwaves
and it seems a furor regarding financial issues has cropped up
amongst the jury. It"s well known that this season of Sony"s
musical reality show has Anu Malik, Sunidhi Chauhan and Salim
Merchant on its jury panel.
Apparently a cold war has transpired between the channel and Anu
regarding the injustice of payment shelled about to him and
Sunidhi. Anu has, in fact, warned the channel to take a call
immediately or else he can also quit the show.
According to a tabloid report, Anu is being paid less than
Sunidhi. The latter is reportedly getting a remuneration of almost
Rs.7.5 lakhs per episode, Anu gets only Rs. 5 lakhs per episode.
This vast difference had annoyed Anu so much that he is not
co-operating with the producer now.
Danish Khan, vice president and marketing head, Sony
Entertainment Television reportedly admitted that they are having
issues with Anu Malik but they are confident of sorting it out.
