As Zee TV celebrates Zee Nite in Hong Kong, the audience gets to see
television's most loved couple, Sharad Malhotra and Divyanka Tripathi, performing
together on stage.
We caught up with Sharad, who was on a one-day break from shooting to spend time
with his mother, to know more about his performance. Recollecting his
experience he says, "I had a fabulous time at the Zee Nite event. My energy
level always doubles up when I get up on the stage for a performance. My entry
was the most amazing part of the entire act. The lights were turned off and the
modified Shahenshah dialogue, 'Rishtey mein toh hum Star lagte hain. Naam hai
Sharad Malhotra' was played. The audience was completely taken by surprise as I was
present in the same crowd. They identified me only when the spotlight hit."
Sharad danced a solo to Bachna Ae haseeno. He also performed a duet with Divyanka
to the numbers 'Pehla nasha', 'Pehli nazar mein', 'Teri aur' and Sharad's favorite
Although Divyanka was suffering from a severe back pain, she too rehearsed a
lot and sounded very exhilarated about her performance as she says, "I could
not dance much as I was suffering from a severe back problem. I still managed
to put in my best, though. I performed on the solo Pankudiyan ye gulab ki. On public
demand, I also sang the song and this was my first live performance. The
audience response was amazing and encouraging."
Apart from the couple, also seen on stage were Harpreet and some of the
SRGMP contestants. The Zee Nite will air sometime next month in South East
