Farah Khan’s celebrity singing show, Lip Sing Battle is bringing interesting pairs to the screen. After Parineeti Chopra–Karan Johar, Sonakshi Sinha–Badshah and Riteish Deshmukh–Shilpa Shetty Kundra, you will see Shah Rukh Khan making an appearance in the special Diwali episode of Lip Sing Battle. Along with SRK, Sushant Singh Rajput and tennis champion Sania Mirza will also make an appearance; the three will battle it out for the winner’s title.
In a statement to Mumbai Mirror, a source associated with the show revealed that Farah Khan has been planning this Diwali special for quite a while now. SRK, who is currently shooting for Aanand L Rai’s upcoming film (where the actor will play a dwarf) in Byculla, has promised Farah that he will make it to the Andheri set on time for Farah’s shoot. The source further added, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sania Mirza will grove to SRK’s hit numbers post which King Khan will make his grand entry. Currently, Sania and Sushant are shortlisting their choice of songs; the latter is keen on his all-time favourite songs, Chaiya Chaiya from Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se and Ruk Ja Ae Dil Deewane from SRK-Kajol’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ).

Farah Khan too confirmed the news and told the daily, “We get different kinds of people to come and do amazing stuff on the show, like Shilpa Shetty doing a take-off on Amitabh Bachchan’s Hum hit – Jumma Chumma and Raveena Tandon dressed up as Anil Kapoor’s Lakhan and swinging to the beat of ‘One Two Ka Four’. It’s exciting now to have Shah Rukh on the show with Sania and Sushant. Sushant confided he loves performing on SRK’s songs and it will be interesting to see Sania dance too. The idea is not to have the regulars come on to promote their films but interesting guests get competitive and have fun. Everyone plays to win.”
