When questioned about his surprising gesture, Shaan said, “It was Mika’s initiative actually. He decided to gift the contestants`21,000 and I also got inspired. I was particularly impressed by this sand artiste Hariharan (he drew Sachin Tendulkar’s life story in four sketches) and the girls who performed a skipping act through fire. They were the prime contenders but they couldn’t make it to the next round and this was our way of encouraging them.”
Mika who is one of the successful singers in Bollywood also runs an NGO – Divine Touch, which takes care of girl child. Mika was touched by the girls’ performance in the show that he gifted them 51,000. The singer was questioned about his interest in charity and his NGO, he said, “For the last 15 years, I have been doing some social work but four years ago I decided to start a NGO to help girls who are poor, cannot afford education or have problems during marriage. I contribute 10 per cent of my earnings to the organization. When I went on the sets of EKLKBK I had not planned to donate money, but I was so impressed with the performances that on the spot I decided to gift money to encourage them. Even Shaan decided to be generous and donated `51,000 from his pocket.”
