Each of the contestants will be giving their best to perform some of Kishore Kumar’s hit tracks. Though the most attention grabbing performance will be of contestant Dipayan Banerjee. His wonderful rendition will leave everyone awestruck. Amit Kumar will also be sharing some special anecdotes.

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, judged by Himesh Reshammiya, Vishal Dadlani and Shankar Mahadevan airs on Zee TV. The show is hosted by Aditya Narayan.

It may be recalled that when Amit Kumar had arrived on Indian Idol 12 last year for a special episode dedicated to his father, he had not liked some of the contestants’ performances but had still praised them during the recording of the show. Later, during an interview, Amit has revealed that he was asked by the makers of Indian Idol to priase every contestant. This had raised many eyebrows on reality show formats and how they ‘manipulate’ the audience. 

Later, Indian Idol host Aditya Narayan had made sly comments on Amit’s interview remarks about the show, which had stirred more controversy.
