Priyam Saha , 28 Oct 2015

Remember the good ol’ days when reality shows weren’t the order of the day, but were a whole new exciting genre for Indian television? And remember how famous some of the contestants on the show got? It’s amazing how quickly their super stardom turned to dust – almost as quickly as they became stars in the first place.

Here’s a trip down memory lane…

1. Rahul Vaidya

I was personally affected when Rahul got eliminated from Indian Idol. Weren’t we all?

2. Amit Sana

The man had some moves, man!

3. Qazi Touqeer

7. Rex D’Souza

He was constantly being made to lose weight, right? When he wasn’t being “linked up” to Rooprekha, that is.

8. Rooprekha Bannerjee

She sung Maiiya Maiiya really well. That one time.

10. Rahul Roy

I feel like you can’t really have a reality TV ‘back in the day’ list without the winner of Bigg Boss Season 1.

11 & 12. Anmol & Shambhavi
