After Abhijeet Sawant took centre stage with his effervescent style in Thursday's episode, it's Shabana Azmi's turn to surprise the participants and the audience with her candid style and flawless diction.
Shabana is not only a celebrity guest, but she also slides into the role of a judge in her hubby Javed's absence.  "With my keen sense of music, I am expected to judge too," she  points out matter of factly. And goes out to prove that whenever Shabana Azmi does something, she does it with élan ! With her ear for music and even keener ear  for  correct  pronunciation,  Shabana proves  with ample ease that she  is as good a judge as her better half.
The Azmi-Akhtar household  is known for holding musical soirées.  The couple share a great love for music.  Shabana  herself  sings and had  trained in Carnatic vocal music for her

performance in Morning Raaga . Not only does she point out the faults of the contestants in her inimitable style, she even  picks up verbal duels with Anu Malik on a couple of occasions, even going to the extent of ticking Anu Malek off and telling him in no uncertain terms to stop demoralising the kids ! As expected, Alisha loves it. For once  Anu ends up getting the taste of his own medicine and Shabana has the last word.  
We would not be surprised if other music shows now rope Madam Azmi  to sit on the judge's chair!

mahan84 15 years ago well i think annu and javed are the only best judges and they gives true remarks as they know the music but Alisha and udit they are too much nice to become judge you know soft hearted they praise everyone. i Think Annu is doing good job by his strict remarks contestants have some fear otherwise they will be relaxing instead of hard work, what you think
