Music Ka Maha Muqqabla is rapidly heading towards its finale (March 20). This Saturday, two more teams will be sent home, thus leaving only two teams to prove their worth. Over the last few weeks, the show has definitely had it's moments, but none as unexpected as the nasal-voiced Himesh breaking down. In the upcoming episode, Rahul Vaidya, of Shankar's team, performed a qawali rendition of Himesh's song, Aashique Banaya Apne. It struck some chord in Himesh, and he had tears rolling down his cheeks. When he realised this, he ran out of the studio, our source says.
To elaborate, the penultimate episode has a new theme - each team has to perform their own rendition, in a different musical genre, of a song composed or sung by the musician heading another team. Thus, Shankar's team will sing Himesh's somgs, Himesh's team will sing Shaan's songs, Shaan's team will sing Shreya's songs, and Shreya's team will sing Shankar's songs. It was during the shooting of this episode that Himesh broke down.
Watch out for an emotionally packed episode this Saturday.
