On 21st July 2012, SONY TV’s singing reality show Indian Idol 6, all of the contestants are asked to name about who they think is the strongest contestant.
Everyone said that Vipul and Kaushik are considered to be the toughest contestant. Literally every person told that either Vipul or Kaushik is there most feared competitor. The only exception was Devender who said his competition is with himself.
When asked later in the show whether Devender showed signs of over confidence but his defense was that he merely focuses more on his own hard work rather than what the others are doing.
