After that, Shanmukha Priya rocked the stage while Nihal Tauro and other contestants also received compliments from the judges and the special guest of tonight. Now, how can an episode get completed without the guest not sharing an unheard story from old times? Well, Javed Akhtar also shared an interesting story from the blockbuster movie Sholay where Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra were in main roles. The poet narrated that Sambha’s character was not included at the time of the screenplay but was added later since it wouldn’t have looked nice if Gabbar himself had said that the government has placed a 50,000 Rs reward on him.
Javed Akhtar continued that while writing dialogues, it hit him that there should be a character that only states this particular dialogue when asked so Samba’s character got included. Besides, Javed Akhtar would be seen challenging Arunita Kanjilal as he will compose a song for her and would test her if she succeeds in it or not. Judge Anu Malik will also join the Akhtar’s test and quickly compose a song. However, Arunita will not disappoint and ace her challenge given by Javed Akhtar. Currently, Sonu Kakkar, Anu Malik and Himesh Reshammiya are judging the show while Sawai Bhatt was the last elimination in Indian Idol 12.
