A unit member from the sets of the show said, "None of the mentors- Himesh Reshammiya, Pritam, Shankar and Aadesh Srivastava - wanted to sit with Mallika. They could not ask her to sit next to Asha Bhosale who is the mahaguru in the show. Eventually, they had to make the feisty actress sit with the participants. While all the mentors chose to behave formally with her, Himesh Reshammiya passed a lot of comments against the actress."
But Mallika Sherawat being her in-your-face self, walked to the sets and the first thing she told Himesh was, 'Should I expose you in front of the people?'
According to our source, Himesh looked nervous and was silent for some time after Mallika's comment. The two have worked together in the 'Mehbooba' song in Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag. But Himesh eventually took revenge by stopping a participant of his gharana from singing one of Mallika Sherawat's songs.
According to the insider, Mallika had also given hair bands to some participants, which she has used in the film. Some of the participants were even made to wear the hair accessory. But whenever they went to sing on the stage, Asha Bhosale told them, 'Hair band nikaal ke gao'.
While the insider from the show said that the mentors had a problem with Mallika, our source from Zee TV had another story to tell. "Mallika was not at all keen to sit with any of the mentors.
She had called the channel and informed them well in advance that she won't be sitting with the mentors and said that she was not keen on sitting with the 'buddhaas'." To add to the entertainment value, Mallika had even carried a horn on the sets. "In fact, she came with a horn and asked where she could sit. Then she herself said that she would sit with the audience," adds the source from Zee TV.
According to the channel source, Mallika had a lot of fun on the sets and kept teasing the contestants.
