Listening to his story, Neha offers him Rs 1 Lakh. Vishal Dadlani also said that he will reward him with something and he would help him find a good teacher who would give him proper training. As he told about his life, he sang Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s classic Kinna Sohna Tenu.
Sharing the short clip of the upcoming episode, the channel’s official Twitter handle wrote, “Shahzad Ali from Jaipur touched the judge’s hearts so much that Neha Kakkar couldn’t help herself but gift him something amazing!
