First of all, please understand that this is not a criticism post but just meant for some good discussion.
So, sajid yesterday asked Jasim after his performance, "tell me honestly, how many points you deserve?". Shankar even objected to this. I strongly felt that was like putting a contestant on the spot. Giving himself points is not jasim's job. It's sajid's job. If he didn't like the singing, he is more than free to take off points and even give his feedback and comments. But, what's with asking a contestant an uncomfortable question like that?
In fact, sajid did the exact same thing last week also with parul. Of course, we all know parul was a weak contestant in terms of singing compared to the others. She would have been eliminated anyways last week. So, sajid asked her "do you think you sang well?" When she was about to answer, he interuppted her and said "just say yes or no". What's with that? Of course, her singing was flawed. But, asking a CATEGORICAL ANSWER like GOOD or BAD is just not done. She had her weaknesses but she wasn't horrible. It would have been much better if he had given her some advise. The poor girl ended responding "No".
As much as I appreciate sajid for his talent, I wish he is more careful in the future.
Again, please understand that this is not meant to bash anyone.
