Come Friday and the 2nd Round of the challenge takes off. Friday’s episode is a very special one. Firstly because it is Ismail Darbar's birthday and secondly because today the new “Mahagurus” for this round - Khayyam saab and Rajesh Roshanji make their entry to the sets as judges. The highlight of the day is Ismail Darbar’s astounding performance on the violin! He picks up the violin after 10 years and gives a flawless performance. The crowd is enthralled by his mastery over the instrument. The theme for today is Ismail Darbar’s compositions. Ismailji makes a promise to the participants that he would give away his most prized possession to the participant whose song would touch his heart the most.
The contestants sing compositions of Ismail Darbar one by one. All of them get their due share of praises, as well as criticisms. But nobody manages to touch Ismail Darbar's heart so as to earn his most prized possession.
Apurva and Sumedha get the 'Farman' in this episode. Raja Hasan from the "Eklavya Gharana” gets selected in Vishal Shekhar's Gharana. A big surprise awaits Ismail Darbar at the end of the episode. His family is called up on the stage and his birthday is celebrated with huge pomp and show.
