Kick starting the first episode of Indian Idol 4 Rubaroo is a very special guest; the chocolate boy who stole millions of hearts with his debut in Masoom years ago, Jugal Hansraj. The actor turned director grooved on the stage with the contestants and hosts, Chang and Deepali in the Rubaroo episode.
"Jugal directly joined Chang and Deepali as he was 10 minutes late for the shoot. After a little chit chat with the host, our actor turned director got together with the contestants for a little rubaroo," says our source from the sets.
The participants were very much excited to have the director of Roadside Romeo with them. "Many contestants performed for Jugal. One of them danced, one played great music with tabla and another was fantastic with the guitar. Jugal was in jolly mood as he watched the contestants perform mimicries and crack jokes", reveals our source.
Jugal was very much impressed by the gesture of these aspiring singers and decided to gift the best performer. "The winner was one of the girls, Bhavya Pandit who sang and played the guitar for the song Namak ishq ka from Omkara. Jugal gave her an Audio CD of Roadside Romeo," quips the source.
"Last but not the least, Jugal promised that he will be soon giving all of them the audio CD of his upcoming movie," adds the khabroo.
