Earlier, in an interview with indianexress.com, director Neeraj Sharma said that the team is looking forward to creating history with Indian Idol 12 and they had ‘big plans’ for the finale. He had said, “If there was no pandemic, we would have hosted the finale in a big stadium, and we are confident it would have been a sold-out show. This season has been loved so much and given it’s the last episode, we wanted to do something really special, and thus the 12-hour episode came in place.”
