Laccha welcomes Alka ji and Kumar ji and introduces himself as Laccha and his buffalo as Dayna. Laccha speaks that he read that if a romantic song is sung in-front of a buffalo then Buffalo will give more milk. After reading, he sang the romantic song, and instead of increase in quantity of the milk, actually the milk’s quantity decreased. Thus, he seeks a solution from Kumar and Alka ji. He wants some help and says that he has already sang their hit song in front of the buffalo which was – Ab Tere Bin.. Jee Lenge Hum.. Zeher Zindagi Ka…. They say that by putting Zeher Zindagi words in the song then how come the buffalo will give more milk ? Laccha then refers to buffalo (Dayna’s) brother as Piter and he many times he teased piter unknowingy that piter doesn’t understand his language but Laccha was taken away by piter on his head. Laccha says that if Alka ji sings, then he will show his smile. Alka ji sings Tum Paas Aaye..Yu Muskaraye Tum Najaane kya sapne Dikhaiya… while Laccha acts like Shahrukh Khan lip-syncing to the song.
Bittu taunts Laccha on imitating SRK. Laccha says that because of Gobar he gets a glowing face and speaks on multiple uses of Gobar. Laccha wants Kumar ji to take the buffalo (Dayna) away. Bittu says that Laccha is a good dancer and Alka ji wants Laccha to sing and dance. Bittu taunts that Laccha can sing not only from mouth.. invoking a laughter. Laccha sings with romantic feel song Tujhe Dekha to jaana sanam while he is singing very discretely and not showing any romantic mannerisms. Laccha comes on the stage and wants to dance with Alka mam and Kumar ji and thinks that they will have fun. Laccha dances on the Dilbar Dilbar song from the movie Sirf Tum (1999, starring Sushmita Sen and Sanjay Kapoor) with lots of energy and moves with Alka mam and Kumar ji applauding him. Kapil signs off by sharing a quote from a smart poet – Umra Jawaani Phir Na Muskarayi Kabhi Bachpan ki Tarah Maine cycle bhi khareedi maine Khilona bhi lekar dekh liye.. [Once we passed our childhood and reach old age, then life didn’t brought to us the feelings of childhood again and even I tried to buy bicycle and toys but in vain].
