Singer Benny Dayal has decided to take action in connection with the controversy over the Super Singer show.
Super Singer is the most popular show on Vijay TV. Season 7 is over, and season 8 is currently airing. Many of those who participated in Super Singer as contestants are now singers in movies in Tamil and other languages. Some have even sung for music composers like AR Rahman, Yuvan Shankar Raja, and Anirudh.
Anuradha Sriram, SPB Charan, and Benny Dayal are the judges for the currently airing Super Singer 8 season. Sridhar Sena, a contestant, had been eliminated from the show last week. This has become a major controversy.
Many have criticized the Judges in this regard and are trolling them on social media. They have targetted Benny Dayal, one of the Judges, calling him a Malayalee and stating he has been partial towards the contestants. Hence, Sridhar Sena, a Tamil contestant, has been eliminated.
Now Benny Dayal has reacted to this and posted this on his Instagram page:
“I will not no more be posting anything associated with Super Singer 8. I can’t take all the hate messages. Thank you for all the love you have shown me. I’m human, after all. Thank you. Won’t see you next season.”
Even as the biggest fan of Sridhar from day 1, I do understand Benny’s POV. Calling them Mallus who are cheating Tamilians, etc is quite insulting (and I’m not Mallu myself). Music has no language and such people are taking out their frustrations in the wrong ways. #SuperSinger8

Why are the scores not being shown immediately after the performances? 🤨 Oho..coz we pointed out the truth with the scores as proof. Now they're keeping it hidden, so that they can conveniently change it to keep their favs inside. Right-u!#SuperSinger8 #SuperSinger pic.twitter.com/bvL2k4PqnV
