Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in for a special Diwali episode in filmmaker Farah Khan’s celebrity singing show, Lip Sing Battle. Sushant Singh Rajput will also make an appearance and has been pitted against tennis ace Sania Mirza. The two will fight it out for the winner’s title.

A source associated with the show reveals that Farah has been planning this special for a while now. The trio will be shooting on Monday. Though Shah Rukh is shooting for Aanand L Rai in Byculla that day, he has promised to make it to the Andheri set on time for her shoot. Both Sushant and Sania will be shaking a leg to hit SRK chartbusters after which the actor will be making a grand entry. Currently, Sushant and Sania are shortlisting their choice of songs. He’s really keen on his all-time favourites, “Chaiya Chaiya” from Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se and “Ruk Ja Ae Dil Deewane” from the evergreen Shah Rukh-Kajol love story, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.

Farah confirmed the news, saying, “We get different kinds of people to come and do amazing stuff on the show, like Shilpa Shetty doing a take off on Amitabh Bachchan’s Hum hit, “Jumma Chumma” and Raveena Tandon dressed up as Anil Kapoor’s Lakhan and swinging to the beat of ‘One Two Ka Four”. It’s exciting now to have Shah Rukh on the show with Sania and Sushant. Sushant confided he loves performing on SRK’s songs and it will be interesting to see Sania dance too. The idea is not to have the regulars come on to promote their films but interesting guests get competitive and have fun. Everyone plays to win.”
