He was so moved that he decided to gift young Sugandha a gold chain.
The veteran composer-singer, known for his love for gold ornaments, was on the sets of the show for an evening dedicated to him.
After some electrifying performances from the contestants, Sugandha took to the stage and sang "Aao tumhe chand pe le", which moved Bappi da so much that he could not hold back his tears.
"I am so moved by your performance that I cannot express it in words. As a token of appreciation I will send you a gold chain during the next episode," he said on the show, informed a source.
Judges Vishal and Shekhar too became emotional, while Sugandha smiled ear to ear after getting a positive response.
