Big B speaks that Shahid has much skills in dance while Shraddha also have interest in singing. He also informs that Shraddha worked for the first time with him in his movie Teen Patti and haven’t worked with Shahid until now. Shahid responds that because of that reason of not working together he always tries to come often to KBC so as to get an opportunity to be in one frame with Big B. Big B speaks that promos are looking amazing and asks Shahid about his film Haider. Shahid replies that Haider is an adaptation of Hamlet (novel). The plot is a family revenge drama centrered on To be or not to be. Big B speaks that Hamlet is a grand novel from William Shakeaspeare. Shahid speaks that the film is based in Kashmir in 1990’s and has been adapted from the original novel according to Indian setting. He speaks that is new and excitement project. Big B ask Shraddha about the movie. Shahid steps in there and suggests that Shraddha is very nervous and she was asking before to him whether she should touch Big B’s feet during their introduction. Shahid informs that he suggested no to her and Big B then suggests that he is not suitable that someone touches his feet on a lighter note. Shraddha speaks of being nervous to appear on KBC and then speaks on working with Vishal Bhardwaj and feels lucky to be a part of the film Haider, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Big B speaks that music and visuals in the promos are amazing and also praises Vishal’s film making. He then speaks that Shraddha and Shahid are playing KBC for a good cause. Shahid informs on donating KBC prize money to J&K Prime minister’s relief fund. Big B informs them that they will play until the hooter alarm. The first question asks what is the phrase when referred to someone who comes in between two lovers. Shahid and Shraddha chooses Kabab Mein Haddi which is the right answer. Big B asks them whether they have some Kabab Mein Haddi in their film not personal. Shahid replies that in movies people come in between lovers but in his personal life there is no one who comes in between. Shraddha replies that in her personal life there is no Kabab and hence no Haddi. Big B suggests that he understood what were the signals Shraddha was giving. A question asks about the traditional Goan layered desert. Shraddha chooses Bebinca which turns to be correct and Big B tries to pull the leg of Shahid by speaking that he visits Goa often but haven’t eaten Bebinca how come that’s possible ? Big B speaks that Bebinca is made up from Egg Yolk. Shahid replies that he is vegetarian thus not eaten that dessert.

Big B speaks that Haider is the second movie of Shahid with Vishal Bhardwaj and the first one was Kaminey. He speaks that in Kaminey, Shahid used to say Fa instead of Sa and asks Shahid how about this movie Haider ? Shahid speaks that Vishal has incorporated Hebrew language semantics Chutzpah [quality of audacity, for good or for bad] in the movie and it has been used in Indian context. Shahid then takes out a skull and speaks that if he is not talking with Arshiya (played by Shraddha) then he does talking with that skull and calls them as love triangle bringing smiles on Big B. He speaks to the skull while holding it and with his dialogue suggests where he have been and informs that Chutzpah happened to him. He speaks that a dacoit have looted a bank and then went again to another counter with the money wanting to open a bank account and he spoke it as an example of the audacity he was referring to earlier. Next question is on which river Srinagar city is situated, and they reply Jhelum which is correct. Big B asks them about their experience shooting in Kashmir. Shraddha speaks that Kashmir is an integral part of their script and story. Shahid speaks that the entire film is shot in Kashmir and there are some locations like Zain-E-Padal bridge in down town where there have been no film shooting in the last 50 years. They shot on the bridge, Lal Chowk and film shooting were done in the heart of the city. Big B speaks of his time and reminds that during summer months films shooting used to take place there and it looks like all the film industry have came there.

One of the expert (tech) Rajeev Makhani who also works at NDTV speaks of a challenge that Shahid – world class dancer and Shraddha – an equivalent good singer and wants dance and singing from the pair and that challenge is accepted.

Shahid speaks that dance he will do but Shraddha doesn’t know the lyrics of that song. Big B then speaks that even big actors doesn’t remember lyrics but does some lip sync and cites the example of Johnny Walker who used to not remember lyrics but used to do something so it looks lip sync. Big B cites an example like just sing A.B.C.D. .. in case you don’t know the lyrics. Shahid first performs on the Bismil song and shows some dance moves. Now comes the turn of Shraddha to sing and she sings Arey Aao Na… song from her movie Haider without any music and sings well.
