The popular singing reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa will be airing a special episode on June 5 honouring the ‘90s singer Kumar Sanu. The singer has entertained music lovers for over three decades with his distinct style of singing.

Paying a tribute to Sanu, the contestants of the show presented some of his hit songs from the 1990s. “It was a wonderful experience to witness all the young talent performing songs that they probably classify as retro from the good old ‘90s. I thoroughly enjoyed all the performances and must say they are phenomenally talented and have a long way to go,” Sanu said in a statement.

Singer Mika Singh, who is seen as a mentor on the Zee TV show along with Sajid Ali, Wajid Ali, Pritam Chakraborty, said that it was an honour to have Sanu on their show.

“We all were awestruck with his singing talent and relived the 1990s in this special episode. Sanu and I performed a remix version of the song Dekha Teri Mast Nigahon Mein with a modern touch,” Mika said.
