Says a source, 'Audiences are shocked seeing the new side of Bhansali who was always perceived as a recluse however the show is introducing audiences to a more accessible, warm and encouraging Sanjay Leela Bhansali. X-Factor is one of the most popular shows on television today and is doing extremely well. His presence on the panel is doing a lot of good for the show.'
Says Sanjay Leela Bhansali, 'I'm having a blast judging the show and I'm thrilled it's doing extremely well. It's a fabulously mounted show. I loved the way it's being presented. I was taken aback by seeing the mounting, because I haven't seen this kind of scale, commitment, planning and preparation in television.'
