Jolly Das, who was ousted out of the contest last year due to chicken pox, will be one of the top 13 finalists in Indian Idol this time.
But this year she will see a difference. The judges now will be Anu Malik, Alisha Chinai and Udit Narayan. Javed Akhtar will be a special judge. Last year, Anu Malik, Sonu Nigam and Farah Khan had judged the competition.
Akhtar claimed that the jury was complete this time, as it has a male and female singer, a lyricist and a composer.
