Today’s episode was dedicated to Anushka Sharma and Phillauri. After Mohit Chopra’s elimination yesterday, all now rests on Malvika, Revanth, Rohit and Khudabaksh to become the 9th Indian Idol. Everyone sang songs from Anushka’s movies. It did make us wonder if Diljit Dosanjh, who’s also part of Phillauri, gave it a miss because he is judging a similar show on a rival channel. That definitely explains a lot. Anyway, Anushka was here so contestants decided to make her happy instead.

The musical night began with L.P. Revanth who sang the track from Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. As usual, Revanth nailed it not only with his singing but also with his charm on stage. But unfortunately, something happened which might have made a little boo boo of him on stage. He tried to give a heart shaped balloon to Anushka but it went bust before she could receive it. His sister invited the actress on stage. Revanth redeemed himself after the balloon fiasco by going down on his knees for her and dedicating Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s title track to her. The actress almost blushed and asked him to become an actor instead.
Khudabaksh sang Haule haule from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Judges and the crowd couldn’t stop clapping for him. He was soon joined by his four sisters which was a surprise for him. Turns out they sing equally well. Talent runs in their blood, clearly.
Malvika stunned everyone by singing Girls like to swing from Dil Dhadakne Do and got a standing ovation from Anu Malik. Farah Khan couldn’t stop applauding her.
PVNS Rohit sang Tharki chokro from P.K. and floored everyone.
All in all, it was a good and musical episode.
