Sasikumar was all praise for the Punjabi contestant Jaskaran, that he gave him a standing ovation. Sasikumar also requested him to sing “Alaporan Tamizhan” song from Mersal, which gained Jaskaran much popularity. On listening to “En Kadhalae” rendered by the wildcard contestant Sanjay, Sasikumar commented,” Your song would entice those not in love as well!”
