Zee TV has been a pioneer and a trend-setter in shaping television content over the past three decades and once again, it seems to be changing the face of music reality shows with its latest non-fiction property, the Indian Pro Music League (IPML). In a clutter-breaking format innovation, Zee TV launched the world’s first-ever music league championship on February 26th, 2021. While the world of sports has seen several league competitions, this unique music league has six teams representing different regions of India, battling it out against each other in a musical championship.
Each of these six teams supported by leading Bollywood and sports celebrities has top playback singers as their captains, one reality show star, and one fresh voice. Celebrated singers – Mika Singh, Kailash Kher, Sajid Khan, Shaan, Ankit Tiwari, Javed Ali, Asees Kaur, Bhoomi Trivedi, Akriti Kakar, Payal Dev, Neha Bhasin, Shilpa Rao are captains of these six zonal teams.
After an exhilarating super match that saw all the six teams battling it out, the upcoming episode will see the Gujarat Rockers take on the Bengal Tigers in their second league match of the competition. During the shoot, each and every singer went all out to impress the audience, but it was the new addition to the Gujarat Rockers team, playback sensation Aditi Singh Sharma, who won everyone’s hearts. The popular singer gave a fantastic performance on Raabta from Agent Vinod, for which she was lauded by one and all present at the shoot.
However, little did anyone know that Gujarat Rockers’ Aditi Singh Sharma and Bengal Tigers’ new sensation Nikhita Gandhi had a special ‘Raabta’. They revealed that while Aditi had sung the original version of Raabta, Nikhita had sung the latest version of the hit number. After this revelation, Aditi invited Nikhita on stage and the duo mesmerised everyone with an impromptu performance. As soon as they completed the magnificent jugalbandi, Shaan applauded them and mentioned how this was a strong message to all the trolls who have been claiming that new singers entering the industry are becoming famous only thanks to auto tune.

Bengal Tigers’ captain Shaan said, “This performance clearly proves all these social media trolls wrong. It is a clear message to them. They feel that singers use auto-tune to sing every song and keep posting comments and trolling artistes, but this impromptu act really breaks that misconception and proves that the industry’s upcoming singers are genuinely talented. Aditi and Nikhita both sang their versions very well in this wonderful jugalbandi act without any prior practice and I really applaud them for their fantastic impromptu act.”
While Aditi and Nikhita’s performance will take your breath away, wait till you see the musical battle between Gujarat Rockers and Bengal Tigers. Team Gujarat’s Javed Ali, Bhoomi Trivedi, Hemant Brijwasi and Aditi Singh Sharma will go all out as they compete against Team Bengal’s Shaan, Akriti Kakar, Rituraj Mohanty and Nikhita Gandhi.
