The social media was abuzz with this issue yesterday.

This artist, who has given birth to discussion-criticism and controversy, told Kal Kantha yesterday, ‘What is happening on social media is excessive. I didn’t go into the competition with any problems. For a long time, my hobby was to go on any reality show and sing my songs to everyone. Many people sing my songs in wrong tunes on various occasions, due to which I sang my own songs as a competitor. In the future, the youth can sing my songs properly. ‘

About Chishti Baul’s participation in ‘Magic Bauliana’ Rumman Rashid Khan, scriptwriter of the reality show and co-manager (programme and creative in-charge) of Machranga, said, ‘I heard from her that she had entered the competition in a previous season as well. But did not appear in the audition. He is a very popular and talented artist. We were shocked to see him among the 20,000 contestants of Dhaka Zone in the initial audition. There is no one to judge his songs. But he is a non-player, he will compete. Later in the studio round, the main judges were in great danger, saying, ‘How can we play your song, we are your fans. ‘ Chishti Baul then said, ‘My hobby for a long time…. Finally, other judges including Shafi Mondal said, “Since the rules of the competition do not say that no popular artist can participate, there is no age limit, so we do not have the authority to exclude him.” Chishti Baul then said that he will accept the way the judges judge.

Many have complained on Facebook that the channel authorities may have used Chishti Baul’s name to promote the reality show. In this context, Rumman said, ‘Machranga authorities never want any publicity by selling his name or his honor. We do not support such activities. ‘
