Indian playback singer Jonita Gandhi was once rejected from a reality show. She revealed that she auditioned for Canadian Idol but was not selected.

She is known for songs such as the Chennai Express title track, The Breakup Song, Dil Ka Telephone, and Sau Tarah Ke.

In an interview with an Indian radio host, Jonita talked about being rejected from Canadian Idol and the toll it took on her. “It definitely hurts your confidence. When I went for the Canadian Idol audition, it was very nerve-wracking because you are putting yourself out there, obviously. On all of these shows, people are really vulnerable. They are just trying their best and when the reaction is not positive obviously you feel a little hurt.”

“Then you feel less bad because you feel like I can work on myself and come back. But if people just say no… Like Simon Cowell on American Idol, how rude he was sometimes… He would just be like, ‘This is not good, don’t quit your day job, don’t try to be a singer.’ Luckily, I have not encountered anyone like that in my life,” she said.
