Last week saw the grand homecoming of Anwesha Dattagupta at Kolkata.
This week, the Chhote Ustaad team traveled west, to the city of our
Stylebhen Aishwarya Majmudar. Needless to say, both the girls received
an ostentatious welcome from Aishwarya’s hometown. Present at the event
to cheer the girls, was Bollywood beauty Bipasha Basu
who added more
spice to the occasion with her enchanting demeanour and encouraging
words. With her hit number No Entry playing in the background, Bipasha
was given a grand welcome by host, Abhaas Joshi
Maintaining the flavour of Gujarat, Abhaas began the episode with Dhol Baaje
(Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam. Aishwarya followed suit with a rapturous
performance of ‘Hey Rang Lo’
(A Gujarati Folk Song). Anwesha was not
one to lag behind in delivering flawless performances. This time, our
Banglar Gorvo, adorned in a gorgeous Gujarati attire delivered a
flawless rendition of Kem Chhey (Jis Desh mein Ganga Rehta Hai) in true
Gujarati Spirit. Being thick friends, both the girls proved through the
last two weeks that they could perform well in each other’s mother
tongue just as in their own in the true spirit of national integration.
Besides the judges, they had Bipasha Basu
swaying to their tunes.
Shreya and Bipasha were thrilled by Anwesha’s perfect Gujarati
performance and appealed to the audience to support her Choti Behen
from Bengal. The girls and Abhaas encouraged by the warmth she exuded,
sang Beedi Jalai Le
(Omkara) for her and Bipasha definitely couldn’t
resist joining them on stage to shake a leg with them.
The event was entertaining with power-packed performances by Voice of
India contestants Irfan and Mirande. Irfan sang Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai
(Gangster), a song dedicated to Bipasha while Mirande performed Mind
(Cash) for the Chhote Ustad finalists. There was also a
segment in which the girls dedicated songs to their parents. The
parents of both finalists said that they were very proud of their
daughters as now they were called “Aishwarya and Anwesha’s parents”.
Aishwarya and her father, Tushar Majmudar, also sang Ek Chatur Naar
together which reflected the beautiful relationship they shared. A
segment of the show was dedicated to the Gurus. Aishwarya sang
(Saawariya) for her Gurus and Kunal Ganjawala
. Kunal said
that this was the toughest song that he had sung and that Aishwarya had
captured the emotions beautifully. Anwesha sang Dupatta Tera
another song sung by Kunal. Kunal and Shreya both blessed the girls and
wished them luck in their journey ahead. Also, Aishwarya’s Gurus made a
vote appeal for both the girls.
The finalists are now geared up for a Face-off on 5th April, (9pm
onwards on Star Plus)
