The team of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs, Ismail Darbar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, his mothyer Leela Bhansali and Vaibhavi Merchant.
Vaibhavi Merchant surely seems to have made her place in filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s family. The choreographer, we hear, played the perfect host to guests who visited Bhansali’s house on Saturday night. The guests were Vasundhara Raturi and Tanmay Chaturvedi participants of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs, whom Bhansali was eager to meet.Bhansali, a regular viewer of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs, was keen to meet the young participants of the show. That’s when he approached the channel and the production house who were more than happy to send their team with the children to filmmaker’s residence at Magnum Opus, Seven Bungalows.
However, the guests were in for a surprise when they saw music director Ismail Darbar (one of the judges of Sa Re â€¦) and choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant present there.
Says a source, â€œBhansali was very happy to meet the kids, and he asked them many questions about classical music. The filmmaker, his mother Leela, and good friend Vaibhavi also requested the kids to sing a few of their favourite songs.â€
A unit member says, â€œVaibhavi looked like an integral part of the Bhansali family. Like Sanjay Bhansali, she also seemed quite fond of children and really enjoyed their company. The children also got along quite well with Vaibhavi and Sanjay’s mother, Leela. Vaibhavi personally made sure that we were served tea and snacks. Sanjay’s mother too seemed to be very fond of her and their equation was more like that of a mother and daughter.
