Apart from the award-winning filmmaker, Indian Idol 12 will see a special guest joining in the celebration. The ‘Bachpan Ka Pyaat’ viral kid Sahdev Dirdo will be welcomed on stage by the team. Aditya posted an Insta reel on the same popular rendition featuring Sahdev and the top six finalists. He captioned it, “#BachpanKaPyaar with the OG cutie Sahadev & #IndianIdol team 🕺🏽.”
