Farah Khan’s Lip Sing Battle is fast becoming a show that is bringing interesting pairs to the screen. After Parineeti Chopra-Karan Johar, Sonakshi Sinha-Badshah and Riteish Deshmukh-Shilpa Shetty Kundra, you will be seeing Sushant Singh Rajput battling it out with tennis champion Sania Mirza.
Says a source, “It will be an interesting combination. Sania, who is a fan of Farah Khan’s movies, will be recreating a song from one of her films, while Sushant will be performing to his favourite actor’s songs. They will be shooting for the show on October 16.”
Since Sushant has openly admitted to being a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan —he also did the superstar’s signature step in Raabta — it won’t be surprising if the actor performs to a SRK song. As for Sania, she and Farah have been friends for several years ever since the director-choreographer invited the tennis ace to be a guest on her talk show, Tere Mere Beech Mein.
In fact, the two appeared together on Koffee With Karan, where Farah confessed that thanks to Sania’s high glamour quotient, she had approached her for an item song, but she refused! Now, it will be interesting to see Sania showing her killer moves, albeit on a different pitch.
