Recap: Dhrulya kiss. Nandini’s idea to look for a third band member for Navya and Manik. Harshad again trying to befriend Nandini. Auditions started.
The Fab 5 had been judging the auditions along with Manik and Navya. All the students were so excited to participate in the auditions and win it as it would be an honor to be awarded by the Fab 5. However, the excitement amongst the judges, that is, the Fab 5, Manik and Navya was going on decreasing as they hadn’t come across a single good candidate who could match up to their standard of performance.
Navya: (talking to Cabir) Cabir, I don’t think I would be able to participate this year as well. But don’t worry you will have all my support.
Cabir: Navya ! Don’t lose hope like that ! I’m sure we’ll figure something out. And this time I definitely want to see you perform at Musicana. But winning is obviously for the Fab 5. You can have the runners up prize.
Navya: Oh hello ! Don’t take my talent for granted. I was already the nightingale of college and now that I have a partner like Manik, no one can beat us. So, just wait and watch, we will perform for sure and not just that, this year, the musicana trophy would be in our hands !
Cabir just gives her a smile as his mission was accomplished. He wanted to motivate his girl to not give up hope and he succeeded in that.
It was 4.00 pm by the time they were nearing their auditions and there wasn’t a single good candidate they could immediately select. There were a few fair performers out of which they now had to select and compromise with their expectations. After the last performance they take up a mash up with all the 8 participants selected and come up with one name to be selected.
Nandini: (announcing) Today’s job was a tough one for us. A really tough one ! But we had to select any one name and we have finally completed that task. And the winner who is going to join Manik and Navya as their band member is…
She is interrupted by a beautiful female voice coming from the college building.
“…main tenu samjhawaan ki, na tere bina lagda jee….”
Nandini stops her announcement instantly and indicates all the others to follow her. They start searching the college building for the owner of that scintillating voice.
“….tu kee jaane pyaar mera, main karoon intezaar tera…tu dil tu yun jaan meri….jaan meri….”
They finally reach the music room from where the melodious song was being sent out.They slowly entered the room and stood there waiting for the singer to turn around and face them. She was a tall lady wearing a cute short dress in baby pink color, her straight hair with golden highlights extending a bit below her shoulders. She had a guitar in her hand and was slowly playing the tune and singing into the mic.
“….Mere dil ne, chun laiyaa ne, tere dil diyaan rahaan….tu jo mere, naal tu renda, tur pe meri asahaa….”
Nandini looks at Manik and Navya who look back at her and all 3 of them give out a wide grin indicating that they had finally found just what they wanted. All the other Fab 5 members smile too realising they could help their friends.
“….jeena mera….haaye !! Hun hai tera kee main karaan tu kar aitbaar mera…main karoon intezaar tera…tu dil tu yun jaan meri….jaan meri…”
She slowly turns around taking the mic with her and placing it on the other side. Her eyes closed and still singing,
“….main tenu samjhawaan ki, na tere bina lagda jee….”
As she opens her eyes with these lines slowly, she instantly stops on having a large audience staring at her. Her face horrified and singing abruptly stopped. Nandini notices her nervousness and says to her,
Nandini: please don’t stop. You sing good. Okay now since it’s already 4.25, and the registrations close at 4.30 sharp, let me ask you straightaway ! Would you like to join a band to participate in musicana ? Your band members would be Manik and Navya (pointing towards them).
Girl: why me ? No !
Cabir: oh cmon it’s a golden opportunity and you should not miss it !
Girl: I have stage fear and so I don’t think I would be able to help you in any way.
Manik: that I’ll take care of.
Girl: (mesmerised on seeing manik) you will ?
Manik: yeah I mean me and Navya we will help you overcome your fear.
The girl does not respond for some time and keeps thinking.
Mukti: please decide fast chick ! It’s almost time !
Girl: (hesitatingly) who would have thought that the first day you enter college and that too SPACE, you would get to meet the Fab 5 and also be a part of a band who are supposedly friends of the Fab 5 ! Okay so I will join but it will take me some time to get used to all of this ! I mean my stage fear.
Manik: don’t worry about that. All
Of us will help you.
Nandini: c’mon then let’s rush. Or else Raghav sir won’t let us register.
They rush towards the registration counter and find that it had been closing down and Raghav sir had been collecting all the papers to wind up the area.
Nandini checks her watch and moves towards the counter.
Nandini: excuse me sir ! There are still 2 bands to be registered. You can’t close down so soon.
Raghav sir: miss Nandini please check the time first and then come to me.
Nandini: I think you should be doing that. It’s 4.29 and there’s still 1 minute left. I’m sure you can write down 2 band names by then.
Raghav sir checks his watch, lets out a sigh and starts writing the names.
Raghav sir: one is obviously the Fab 5. Which is this other band ?
Manik: our band. It’s me, Navya and…
He turns to look at the other girl they had chosen for their band as he did not know her name. She therefore spoke up, “soha….soha khurana !”
Raghav sir: Manik, Navya and soha. And what’s your band name ?
All of them leave a pause thinking about some name as they hadn’t decided on that yet.
Navya: (suddenly excitedly) the thunder 3 !
Everyone looks at her in confusion and she continues,
Navya: what isn’t it amazing ? If it’s fab 5 on one hand, then even we need to have a lightening name !
All of them laugh out at that and agree to the name.
The registration process gets completed and all of them head towards the music room to celebrate !
Precap: musicana preparations. Mukti Manik confrontation on Abhimanyu ! Dhrulya confrontation about the kiss and Aliya’s feelings.
Tomorrow: Pani ff. Jungle and falling from the cliff shoot. Behind the scenes.
Hope you all like soha’s entry as the third band member. Stay tuned as there is a lot of drama coming up with the musicana preparations !
Thank you !
