Sometimes the happiest faces carry the deepest sadness, same is the case of happy-go-lucky Superstar Singer 2 contestant Soyab Ali who is often seen challenging Captain Salman Ali to take his captain’s chair from him. But little did we know that the chota packet bada dhamaka is carrying a huge baggage of sadness within him due to his family’s financial condition.
Before his performance, Judge Alka Yagnik gets curious to know more about Soyab Ali beyond just a contestant who has his eyes on the captain’s chair. To which Soyab breaks down and shares, “I belong to a very poor family and I believe poor people do not get heard, so I did not feel like sharing my story. I lost my sister last time when I came for this show and this time my father lost his one eye. As we do not have money we are not being able to afford medical help which breaks my heart. I want to get educated and improve the condition of my house as well as my village. I want to make a difference.”
After listening to this side of his story, judges and captains will be left teary eyed. Judge Alka Yagnik says, “A person’s richness or poverty is determined by his heart. You are a beautiful soul which makes you rich from the heart. This newfound team on Superstar Singer 2 is your family. We all will support you in education so that you will get to fulfil all your dreams and give your family a better life. This show is just the beginning of your beautiful tomorrow.”
Soyab’s captain Pawandeep Rajan along with the other captains promised to fulfil Soyab’s dream of completing his education by financially supporting him. Deeply moved by Soyab’s story, Captain Salman added, “When I also started my singing journey, even my conditions weren’t that great and since both of us come from the same place I know what you are going through as well. But, I want to tell you that the platform you are on today has so much of power to change your future; and I am sure everything will soon change for you, that too for the good.”
Turning his pain into his strength, Soyab delivered a heart touching performance along with his captain as they went on to sing ‘Arziyaan’. Their performance created magic on stage leaving everybody mesmerized especially the original singer of the song i.e. judge Javed Ali.
This beautiful moment created on stage and the sweet gesture by the captains shows how this Superstar Singer 2 team has now really become a Great Indian Joint Family.
