Talking about the incident, Malik said: "There was an incident when a singer was auditioning. At a point, when I said something, Vishal broke into a laughter falling off the chair. He fell down completely and hurt himself.
"He said 'I couldn't take what Anu just said' and laughed his heart out. It is amazing to share such moments with them. We connect through eyes and he instantly catches me of what I am thinking and trying to say."
Asked about his co-judges, Malik said: "When I am with Vishal and Neha, it feels like I know them from 100 years. We all are a big family now. It feels as if we have done all the 'Indian Idol' seasons together."
