Competition and rivalry seems to have set in from the first episode itself with trouble brewing between the contestants of Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar. There is an evident underlining friction and tussle between Toshi and Vineet with both of them wanting to perform on the same song i.e. Lagan Lagan Lag Gayi Re from Tere Naam. Toshi believes his voice is best suited to songs sung by Sukhwinder and hence is persistent on choosing the song for himself, while Vineet is confident of giving an ace performance on the song and hence insists on performing on it.
Champions (Debojit, Abhijeet and Rooprekha) are feeling the pressure and are bearing the brunt of the format of Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar since they are only given one opportunity to perform while the Challengers get two attempts. The pressure to give their best performance in a single performance is leading the Champions to believe that the opportunities are skewed towards the Challengers.
Although Vineet Singh and Rahul Vaidya appear to be the best buddies on the show, there is a competitive undercurrent between them with each one of them waiting to score over the other and jumping at every opportunity of pulling the other down.
After Rooprekha's comment on Sumitra's performance, the hostility between the two of them has grown stronger and it looks like they have agreed to disagree on every issue and are constantly found bickering on the sets!
Being a Bengali, Rooprekha has a huge language barrier since she finds it extremely difficult to converse in Hindi. Whenever, she tries to make a point, she is often misunderstood and misinterpreted on the show because of the communication gap. But her flawless singing has everyone stumped.
