Singer Neha Kakkar, who is currently seen as one of the judges along with Vishal Dadlani and Anu Malik on the singing reality show Indian Idol 11, was left shocked when one of the contestants on Indian Idol 11 forcibly hugged and kissed her on her cheek. For the unversed, a contestant, during the audition round of the show, entered the stage with several gifts and a teddy bear. He asked Neha Kakkar whether she remembers him. Apparently, the 31-year-old singer had met him earlier too. So, when Neha got on to the stage to acknowledge his sweet gesture and moved towards him to hug him, expressing her gratitude, he forcibly held her and planted a kiss on her cheek. Indian Idol 2019: Who Are the Judges and Host?

This act of the contestant not only made the singer uncomfortable but also left the host of the show Aditya Narayan and other judges - Anu Malik and Vishal Dadlani - baffled. Clearly, this behaviour is not acceptable and so host Aditya Narayan tried to stop the contestant but it was in vain. Also, fans of Neha Kakkar took to social media to criticise the contestant's behaviour towards a woman as he crossed the boundary by doing so. Indian Idol 11 Participant Azmat Hussain’s Mesmerising Singing Performances From Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs 2011 That Will Win Your Heart (Watch Videos)

Meanwhile, Bollywood's singing sensation Neha Kakkar, who has been pretty vocal about her personal life in the past few months, had earlier made headlines after she went public with her breakup with actor Himansh Kohli. However, she later regretted her decision to go public about her private life as she sooner realised that how people can be negative towards someone when they are too transparent.
