Zee TV recently returned with its long-running singing reality show that has stayed relevant to music lovers across the country, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2021. The show started off with a bang and the talented contestants of this season have already managed to impress the audience. Viewers are in for a treat this weekend as the gorgeous Raveena Tandon Thadani will appear as the special guest during the ‘Top 8 Contestants Special’ episode.

While each contestant impressed Raveena through their performances, it was contestant Sharad’s rendition of Ello ji sanam hum aa gaye (Andaz Apna Apna) and Kitna haseen chehra (Dilwale) that left Raveena mesmerized.

Sharad was then asked to do a unique task. This time, he had to comfort Raveena in the same way Aamir Khan’s character had cheered her reel persona up when she was angry in the Ello ji sequence of Andaz Apna Apna. Sharad’s performance as Aamir left everyone amazed, making Raveena nostalgic. She then revealed how Aamir had played a hilarious prank on her during the film’s shoot and how she got back at him.

Said Raveena Tandon, “I still remember Aamir and I were shooting on a horse carriage. It was a fun sequence, but little did I know that the whole unit along with Aamir was planning to pull a prank on me. We were sitting inside the carriage and Aamir was standing behind me while I was getting my makeup done. He asked for a cup of tea and suddenly, I see this hot cup of tea falling from his hand and coming in my direction. I got scared and I immediately tried to duck, only to realize that it was a prank. The cup was empty, and it was tied to the plate through a thread!”

She added, “While everyone had a laugh at my expense, I was no less. I gave it back to Aamir during the same sequence. At that time, there were no vanity vans, so Aamir had to walk quite a while to use the washroom. While he was away, due to the weather conditions, our director Rajkumar Santoshi told us to pack up for the day. However, I requested master Saroj-ji to give Aamir a difficult step and make him practice that step inside the carriage. He did what was instructed, but soon he realized that I was relaxing, and he was the only one practicing! He came to know after 30 minutes that he too was the butt now. It brings a smile to my face even today.”
