Neha Bhasin gave a super-sizzling performance on “Deedar De” and “Aisa Jaadu Dala Re.” She got a bit emotional after the performance as she recalled being rejected and judged by her clothes. She was even asked to get off the stage for wearing shorts. But she wanted to be a pop-star since childhood, considered her body as an instrument, denoted her vocals and her body both as Saraswathi. She then thanked IPML and ZEE TV for not stopping her for what she’s wearing and allowed her to give her dream performance. She sang she danced, she performed, all in all, she was amazing.

All the responsibilities felt heavy on his shoulders, he didn’t know what he’ll do and how his life will proceed without his brother.
