Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, which has introduced talents like Shreya Ghoshal, Kunal Ganjawala, Sugandha Mishra, Raja Hasan and Vaishali Made is giving some exceptional young singing talents a chance to shine with the ninth season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs. Judges Shankar Mahadevan, Anu Malik and Neeti Mohan guide the young singing sensations.

As the top 12 contestants continue to impress, a surprise awaits the viewers this weekend as legendary playback singer Nitin Mukesh will be seen gracing their special episode—Celebrating 100 years of Mukesh. While all the contestants gave some spectacular performances of his father, the iconic Mukesh’s songs, Nitin shared how his father faced a long period of struggle, even after giving the industry popular songs like Awara hoon (Awara) and Mera joota hai japani (Shree 420).

Nitin mentioned, “I have never heard of anyone struggle with so many ups and downs in life. He has gone days without eating food, but the strange thing is that he became ‘The Mukesh-ji’ after singing famous songs and yet struggled for six to seven years after that. There was a time when he couldn’t afford to pay the school fees for my sister and me. I still remember that there was a vegetable vendor near our house, who absolutely loved my dad, and was so fond of his voice that he offered to lend him some money. That’s how dad paid our school fees, but, neither he nor the vendor ever let this information reach us.”

He added, “But our mother used to tell us everything, saying, ‘See how Papa is going through a tough time’. These are the memories that I will never forget, and I pray that I can follow in his footsteps. He never gave up and always said that he will emerge as a winner—and he did.”

Shankar Mahadevan mentioned how such stories will inspire kids and motivate them to work harder towards achieving their dreams.
