Anu Malik said, “Rik, I would say there is magic in your voice, and your incomplete love story only adds pathos to your extraordinary singing. In the 90s, whenever the famous singer Kumar Sanu sang a soulful song with undertones of pain, it touched the hearts of everyone, and especially the lovers who could relate to the emotions of the song. And today I observed that you have a similar intensity of feelings in your voice. During your performance, I had tears in my eyes because I recalled one of my stories which I cannot share, but after your performance, I can say that your voice has reached everyone with a broken heart, and they can feel your pain.”
Rik's touching performance moved everyone to tears but brace yourself for the heartfelt performances of the top 12 Sa Re Ga Ma Pa contestants; they'll undoubtedly touch your heart.ALSO READ: Did you know Utkarsh Sharma broke his right leg a day before shooting the iconic song 'Main Nikla Gaddi Leke'?
