Post their performance on this episode, which was appreciated by the studio audiences and the mentors Amrita Singh & Mahesh Manjrekar, the Eastern zone mentor Shabana Azmi was asked to rate the team. Shabanaji who was going strict with the markings said “There is so much rubbish that has happened on this show today. The team standing on stage is the culprit for creating this on such a platform that helps you realize a dream of being a part of a mega film, an opportunity that many would die for. Today I have decided that since I am given the authority and power, I will use it and teach them a lesson. I am going to give them the lowest scores I have ever given any Jodi till date”. Saying this she raised the card and gave the team score of 1 for their performance.
Twinkle Bajpai took it gracefully but asked the mentors why only her Jodi was punished? She pointed fingers at Naman Shaw and stated that he was the one who started the argument. Well, if this was not enough, Twinkle and Puneet who came back to the show after staging a walkout due to public demand were the ones who were eliminated this week… Wonder what happened to the public who made a hue and cry demanding her comeback???
When asked, Twinkle confirmed and said, “Yes this week I am eliminated. I am very happy because it was getting very stressful for me. I was sharing the bottom two with Chetan Hansraj this time, but when casting votes was in the hands of the contestants, they voted me out. If it would have been only in the hand of the public, then definitely the results would have been different”.
When Shabanaji was asked for more clarifications, all she said is that my scores said it all and I don't want to say anything else.
