Mumbai, April 13 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who promoted his forthcoming film “Fan” on singing reality show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa”, was astonished by the singing talent of a visually impaired contestant from Canada, named Jagpreet.
Shah Rukh made a grand entry by performing on the song “Jabra fan”.
When Jagpreet came on stage to perform on the song “Kal ho na ho”, Shah Rukh got impressed by his talent and joined him on stage to perform with him.
“Jagpreet is an inspiration to millions. Far from being visually impaired, I believe he has a vision that he is going after. I salute the grit and determination with which he’s surpassed the obstacles and challenges in his path and come this far,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.
Jagpreet said that it his long-standing dream to do playback for the “Chennai Express” star and asked if his dream can become a reality. Shah Rukh immediately went on to the stage and lip synced and spread his arms in his iconic pose to the beautiful track while Jagpreet sang for him.
Talking about the other contestants, Shah Rukh said: “It’s hard for me to believe that the contestants are so flawless in front of a live audience. I remember how the song ‘Apun bola’ from ‘Josh’ was broken down into a thousand pieces for me to be able to sing.”
“Sa Re Ga Ma Pa”, aired on Zee TV, features Sajid Ali, Wajid Ali, Pritam Chakraborty and Mika Singh, as mentors.
The episode featuring Shah Rukh will be aired on Sunday.
