MUMBAI: This weekend on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs, emotions flow in abundance as all the contestants, Captains Shaan and Monali and even the host Aditya Narayan get a special surprise from their loved ones. The young Li’l Champs have been living away from home for nearly two months now , gearing up for the tough competition and giving their best week on week. So it was time to surprise them by bringing down their parents, siblings and even teachers.

While host Aditya Narayan was busy welcoming each contestant’s relative or parents who were specially flown down for this episode, never did he imagine that the makers of Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa had also planned a surprise for him! During the course of the show, the Li’l Champs were asked to share one thing which they would like to thank and apologise to their parents for. When the young and charming host Aditya Narayan was asked the same question, he replied that he would like to thank his dad for his genes and singing ability and before he could continue, a very familiar voice singing the popular 90’s number ‘tu mera dil tu meri jaan’ took over for backstage. Well it hardly took Aditya and people sitting in the audience a couple of seconds to realise that it was the legendry singer and host Aditya’s father, Udit Narayan singing his son’s debut song and their first duet. Aditya, who was visibly pleasantly surprised, replied singing his portion of the track ‘oh I love you daddy’!  An overwhelmed Aditya expressed his delight and disbelief on seeing his dad on the sets of his show and even thanked the channel for bringing in this sweet surprise for him.

The senior Narayan also had a great time catching up with old friend Mahaguru Alka Yagnik and affectionately teased her. The duo has given Bollywood some of the most memorable chartbusters of the 90’s together and took this opportunity to walk down memory lane and talk about their good old recording days. The two even sang ‘mere mehboob mere sanam’ from the film Duplicate on the demand of the audience. However, the father and son duo were only allowed to leave the stage after they gave an encore of their superhit debut duet. Udit Narayan immediately obliged and even rendered his own version to son Aditya Narayan’s latest hit ‘tattad tattad’ . It was truly a delight to see the two powerhouse performers perform together on stage!

When two of Captain Monali’s friends paid her a surprise visit on the sets as a part of the same episode, they spill the beans on her passions other than music. The audience, Mahaguru and Li’l Champs  were surprised  to know that this petite beauty is actually a squash, pool and badminton champion and has given many of her male friends stiff competition. Her friends, who met her years back at a dance class also divulged that she is a phenomenal salsa dancer and can also do some dangerous head stunts. Well, seems like Monali is surely a ‘chota packet bada dhamaka’!
