Chala gaya… Tum sab toh thandi ho sab, garmi to hai ni tum me. Tabhhi toh pehle season ka TRP dekh lo aur second, third season ka TRP dekh lo. Sab pata lag jayega. Aur Mittal saab ko ek cheez aur batana chahunga, bhaisahab, jo pehle season mein chala gaya wo tha GOAT, aur tum sab teesre season mein abhi bhi audition hi kar rahe ho Shark banne ke liye."
