'I'm elated that Daler 'paaji' is part of the special Independence Day episode of the show. For me, it’s a very special episode because whatever I'm today is because of my brother.

Daler, known for songs like 'Bolo ta ra ra ra' and 'Tunak tunak tun', is also excited about coming on the show. ''The Voice India' is one of my favourite shows on television. It was a very humbling experience to be a special guest on such a big platform for singers who were all very good.
I also got to be alongside the very talented Mika Singh - a great entertainer. I wish all the young singers the very best during the process,' Daler said in a statement.
