The episode started with quite a bang! While all the contestants packed in scintillating performances one after the other, it was Li’l Champ Riya Biswas from Kolkata who left the DABANGG superstar speechless with her vocal abilities. The tiny singing prodigy brought the house down as she sang the famous number ‘Dil Deewana’ from Salman Khan’s debut movie MAINE PYAAR KIYA. Not only was the superstar floored by Riya’s marvelous performance but felt pangs of nostalgia and gave her the most cherished compliment of her life.
BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, was left awe-struck, and went on to compare Li’l Champ Riya with the living legend Lata Mangeshkar.
Salman said, “Riya, your style of singing reminds me of Lata di. Had she been here, she would have been so proud to hear you sing this song so effortlessly”.
Taking a stroll down memory lane, Salman Khan said, “Wherever I’ve reached today is only because of this song and the movie.”
Brother Sohail khan who was equally impressed with Riya’s singing commented, “This song has brought back such fond memories as it is from Salman’s debut film. I still remember going to Rajshree studio to see the movie. It’s only because of this movie that our entire family was launched in the industry and made us what we are today.”
We are aware Bhaijaan loves kids and always appreciates their talent be it on film, in real life and now in reality show, he simply adored kid, this gesture of Bhai is unforgettable and truly humble of him.
