Bengali singer Haimanti Shukla stormed Zee Bangla Saregamapa Program on 15th August, 2012, on the day of Mahalaya. Jishu Sengupta, the anchor told the audience that he used to call Haimanti Shukla Haimanti Pishi.
Jishu Sengupta asked Haimanti Shukla to sing a song. She sang it. Then she was asked about the experience of Mahishashur Mordini played in All India Radio on the day of Mahalaya every year.
She said that it became a cult for the entire group of bengalies. Most of the bengalies always listened to Mohishashur Mordini at 4 am early in the morning every year.
Haimanti Shukla gave good tips to the young singers. Samayan Sarkar was told to concentrate on the song when he was dancing and performing. He sang the song “dekha jo tujhe yaar dil me baji guitar” where he showed his performance skills. Jishu Sengupta sang the song himself too. One of the contestant sang Hemanta Mukherjee's song "o akash sona sona".
Kumar Shanu, Alka Yagnik and Joy Sarkar also gave their best inputs on the day of Mahalaya. All the singers did a great job.
