Daadi who is dressed in all pink even wears a blonde hair gown goes to Bittu and forces him to come with her and enjoy with them. Bittu informs Daadi that they will celebrate International 29th Imarti Devi Granny Music Awards. Raju becomes puzzled on hearing it.

Daadi thinks she is dressed in a Vikram-Betaal attire but Bittu suggests that she is Tedhi Gaga. Daadi agrees to become Tedhi Gaga (Spoof on Lady Gaga). Bittu suggests them to go inside and prepare for the singing by looking in the Internet how international singers compete in competitions.

Bittu says that the competition is tough and then introduces Tedhi Gaga. Daadi comes as Tedhi Gaga on the Halla Bachaiye Re song and Bittu says that she is alone a bit. Tochi asks that the category is Best Male so how come Tedhi Gaga can come in ? Bittu says that she came by force as she doesn’t think to be less than men. Bittu further says that she likes swimming and hence became bloated. She has the same problem like a whale. Sugandha wants to test Tedhi Gaga performance. Daadi then dances while singing – Aa Gayi Tedhi Gaga Hello Hello and dances on one leg and asks How was it ? Sugandha becomes confused and says that she is dancing like Gujrati person.
