Nikhita Gandhi– the female voice in “Raabta, Qaafirana, Burj Khalifa” and other Bollywood hits. Nikhita Gandhi is the new all-rounder to Team Bengal Tigers. She melodiously sang “Qaafirana” from the movie “Kedarnath” followed by “Sham Savere Teri Yaadein Aati Hai – O Sanam” and began the Karwaan of singing for the episode.
Aditi Singh Sharma– “a Mirchi ka tadka in Gujarat’s mithaas,” the all-rounder for Team Gujarat Rockers who got her break from the film “Dev-D,” 12 years in Bollywood with 50 plus different kind of songs. Aditi Singh Sharma is definitely a tough competition to newbie Nikhita Gandhi. She took the round to another level by beautifully singing the evergreen track of modern love- “Raabta” from “Agent Vinod.” Aditi called Nikhita on the stage after the performance because Nikhita is the one who sang the same song for another movie. They created a magical moment when they both sang a couple of lines from “Raabta.”
Captain Shaan and Mismi (new voice) from the Team Bengal Tigers depicted the 4 stages of love through their songs. The first stage was Friendship and King of romantic voice Shaan began the performance with “Wo Ladki Hai Kahan” from “Dil Chahta Hai.” Second, ’s the most beautiful stage according to Shaan- Attraction and the song they chose was “Kuch To Hua Hai” from “Kal Ho Na Ho.”
Next stage’s Disappointment which was depicted by the song “Ladki Kyon Ladko Si Nahi Hoti.” The final stage is the most important one- Survival of true love even in hardships, Captain Shaan was performing solo for this one and then his wife walked in from behind, which couldn’t be a better ending for the performance on Love. Then came captain Javed Ali from Gujarat Rockers to give an incredible performance- “Kun Faya Kun” from the movie “Rockstar.” He even shared a small ‘A.R. Rahman’ incident that took place during the making of the song.
Round-3 began with the depiction of the supreme form of love i.e., worshipping god. Captain Shaan, Rawstar Rituraj, New Voice Mismi and Allrounder Nikhita from Bengal Tigers earned a lot of praises after the soothing fusion of “Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram” and “Tu Aashiqui Hai.” Followed by a power-packed performance from Gujarat Rockers. Captain Javed and Rising Star Hemant Brijwasi sang “Nagada Nagada Baja” from “Jab We Met” and “Patakha Guddi” from the movie “Highway.”
All three divas from Gujarat Rockers- Bhoomi Trivedi, all-rounder Aditi Singh Sharma and New voice Laaj performed the song “O Meri Jaan.” The performance came out to be very bold, Nikhita Gandhi loved the texture of their voices. To compete with Divas came a Diva from Team Bengal Tigers- Akriti Kakar gave a phenomenal performance on Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s “Nit Khair Manga.” She said that Sufi is very close to her heart.
Bhoomi Trivedi from Gujarat Rockers and Akriti Kakar from Bengal Tigers faced-off on the song “Zabaan Pe Laga Laga Re Namak Ishq Ka.” Both the teams came on the stage dancing and Javed Ali wrapped up the show by praising Bhoomi and Akriti for a historical face-off.
