Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan will pass on his skills in performing Assam's Bihu dance to fellow actor Salman Khan during the last episode of the TV game show

Kaun Banega Crorepati

tomorrow.



Shah Rukh, who hosts the show, had enthusiastically performed the Bihu dance during an episode earlier this year when a contestant from Assam -- Mridul Gogoi -- had asked the actor to shake a leg with him.



The Bihu festival marks the new harvest and the dance associated with it is one of Assam's most popular folk dances.


Tomorrow's episode of KBC will feature two celebrity pairs - Kareena Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif.



Gogoi won Rs 3,20,000 on the show and donated his winnings for the construction of a temple in his hometown of Dibrugarh.



"I have been chosen among the best four contestants of KBC," Gogoi told PTI on phone. He said the four contestants were short-listed out of over 100 who faced Shah Rukh's questions during the past 52 episodes.



Gogoi, however, said he was unable to participate in the shooting of tomorrow's episode and accept the prize along with the three other contestants due to personal commitments.
