Amul Star Voice of India Chhote Ustaad has reached its penultimate stage. The last five are in place. The last lap has to be the challenger joining the gang to become Chhote Ustaad SUPER SIX. But in a much unexpected turn of events on Saturday, the kids on Chhote Ustaad - Anvesha Dataa, Vyom Kapoor, Sonia Sharma, Prakriti Giri and Aishwarya Majumdar showed their displeasure with the introduction of a Challenger at this stage of the competition. This came as a big shocker as it was completely unexpected that the little kids will object or have any opinion on the matter.
After the judges calmed them and assured them that a challenger is a must to prove their mettle, only then they would be a notch better; the kids agreed to sing and do their best. And as true performers they put up a smiling face and gave good performances at the Qawwali special on the Saturday episode of Chhote Ustaad.
Soniya impressed the judges with Shubha Mudgal's 'Ali More Angana'; Anwesha sang 'Pal do pal ka saath' ('Burning Train'), Vyom recited the classic Manna Dey song, 'Aye Meri Zohrazabeen' ('Waqt'). Aishwarya performed a flawless 'Nigahen Milane ko Ji Chahta Hai'. Prakriti sang 'Salaam-e-Ishq' next.
Since it was a day for Qawwali, Abhaas asked the judges to sing their own song in Qawwali style. Shreya sang 'Yeh Ishq Hai' and Pritam sang a medley of 'Bhool Bhulaiya' and 'Mauja hi Mauja.' The audience, participants, and the judges were in splits.
Kunal Ganjawal summarized all performances and appreciated the maturity with which the kids handled their grievances or displeasure. "The kids could have walked away not shooting for the episode but handled the situation really well; they conveyed their displeasure sporting a black band around their wrist", said Kunal.
That's what true showmanship is all about!
