Amidst all the outstanding folk performances, on popular demand, the contestants requested Ila Arun if she could perform on her famous track – ‘Delhi Shahar Mein Maro Ghaghro Jo Ghumio’. Subhranil took the moment and said, “You are an inspiration to all of us. Back in the day when Indie Pop was a huge trend, when people were composing raps which were influenced by Western culture, you, on the other hand, established the folk form (as part of the pop culture). You popularised the Indian costumes, jewellery and culture especially with the Vote for Ghaghra song.”

To which, she responded, “The idea was to always reach the younger generation of audience and popularise our folk culture. Even the song 'Bichooda' was released in Hong Kong because it was a good mix of folk fusion as we wanted to reach the younger generation and Vote for Ghaghra also has modern beats but it basically means Ghaghra aurat ka vastra hi nahi, aurat ka shashtra hai….and has a deeper meaning with Marwari rap. It means women are not weak, women are powerful.”

Later, Subhranil requested the veteran singer to dance on stage with all the contestants. And, Ila further requested Terence to join her on stage. Illa Arun performed gracefully alongside Terence and the contestants on the song “Delhi Sheher Main”, her presence and energy overshadowed everyone on the stage.

After the performance, Malaika Arora said, “You are simply brilliant.”

Looking at Ila Arun’s energy, Terence Lewis was keen to know her age, but the singer shared an interesting story. Illa Arun said, “You can figure out my age by looking at my energy. Whenever people ask me about my age, I never tell them. The reason is that I don’t know myself! My mother doesn't remember my birth date. I celebrate four birthdays according to what my relatives have told me. But for real, I celebrate it on March 15th, as that is what my father wrote on the birth certificate.”

Moreover, the audience will witness a lot of fun moments, banter, and entertainment throughout the episodes. The contestants paid a special tribute to the super-talented Ila Arun, who reminisced about precious moments and took to the stage and raised the bar a few notches higher. Guru Randhawa and Dhvani Bhanushali will be seen singing their popular songs raising the energy levels for the evening and enjoying the performances of the contestants! While Dhvani Bhanushali mesmerized everyone with her beautiful voice and sang the song – ‘Vaaste’, Guru Randhawa sang his chartbuster songs, ‘Ban Ja Tu Meri Rani’ and ‘Lagdi Lahore Di’ for judge Malaika Arora who is back on the judges' panel. Malaika even joined Guru on stage and the two shook a leg on his popular track.
