The mother of all entertainment nights is back this year and with it being a celebration of 20 glorious years of Zee, the Vaseline Zee Rishtey Awards is bigger and better than anything you’ve ever seen before! With every star on Zee TV putting up a performance (or two), it is razzle dazzle all the way! The channel’s leading ladies are all set to delight an awestruck audience with a mujra that takes place mid-air! That’s right, Ankita Lokhande (Archana of Pavitra Rishta), Kratika Sengar (Aarti of Punarvivaah), Narayani Shastri (Gulabiya of Phir Subah Hogi) and Vindhya Tiwari (Lovely of Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein) come together on stage to perform a scintillating mujra while suspended high up in the air above the audience.
This act opened with Narayani Shastri, in an ethnic silver dress, stylishly descending a staircase and giving her latkas and jhatkas to the popular ‘Bedardi Raja’ from Delhi Belly. The audience went into a frenzy as Ankita Lokhande took to the stage looking stunning in a red and black sharara and brought the house down with her sensuous moves to ‘Jhallah Wallah’. Vindhya Tiwari was at her graceful best as she danced to ‘In aankhon ki masti mein’ from Umrao Jaan exuding the romance and the adaa reminiscent of an early day Rekha. Then, it was gorgeous Kratika Sengar who had every man in the audience eating out of her hands as she played the impish courtesan with flourish, dancing to ‘Dil mera muft ka’. The climax of the act where all four gorgeous women were swept off their feet and lifted 20 feet into the air for their “mid-air mujra” was doubtlessly the piece de resistance!
Ofcourse if the ladies were flying high, our heroes weren’t about to be left behind. Rithvik Dhanjani (Arjun of Pavitra Rishta), Gurmeet Chaudhary (Yash of Punarvivaah) and Nandish Sandhu (Aditya of Phir Subah Hogi) tried on superhero avatars complete with daredevil stunts and props! Rithvik executed a series of complicated flips and spins all while he was suspended high above the stage as he performed to ‘Raftaarein’. Gurmeet, on the other hand, literally played with fire as he danced to the highly energetic ‘Ishaqzaade’ all while twirling batons of fire. Nandish too was the epitome of machismo when he took to the stage to perform to the trance like ‘Behne de’ from Raavan. The gasps from the women in the audience were audible as they watched these dashing men set the stage on fire with their grace and vigor.
