Judge Remo then performed his version of Teen Ka Tadka along side Lauren Gottlieb and choreographer Salman Khan. Their act was based on a particular scene from Hindi mythology ‘Ramayan’ where judge Remo played the role of Raavan who was trying to kidnap Sitaji (played by Lauren) and the old vulture Jatayu who tried to save Sitaji was played by Salman. Their song reflected the religious theme of their act. It truly was a spell binding performance and it gave the audience a clear reflection as to what todays acts would be like.
It was then time to welcome the special guests on stage who would form the Teen Ka Tadka. Sana Saeed, Faisal, Dadi from Comedy Nights with Kapil, Krystle D’Souza, Mukti Mohan and Ellie Avram were all welcomed on stage.
Next it was time to decide this weeks face-off. Akshat and Sophie were the bottom two contestants this week and would be performing their face-off act later in the show.
The first Teen Ka Tadka to perform today were Ashish, Shampa and Sana. Their chosen dance style was tango and their chosen song was ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ from Beta. At the end of the act host Manish wished Ashish a very Happy Birthday. The judges said it was a fantastic sensual performance. Judge Madhuri said that if Anil Kapoor had seen this act, he would have wanted two heroines with him instead of just Madhuri in the original song! Judge Karan then said it takes two dancers to compete with one Madhuri Dixit! Judge Karan was once again surprised that Ashish’s wife was present in the audience. Ashish was awarded 29 marks for his performance.
Next to perform on stage were Teen Ka Tadka of Shakti, her sister Mukti and Tusshar. This was the first time on stage that the two sisters Shakti and Mukti would be performing together.
