Known for his comedies, Govinda got emotional when one of the contestants sang Ram teri ganga maili on the sets of reality show Indian Idol Junior.

Sonakshi Kar from Kolkata chose to sing the title track from the 1985 film Ram Teri Ganga Maili and it left the actor teary-eyed, said a statement.

It is said that Govinda’s mother (Nirmala Devi) had sung the chorus for it and Sonakshi’s voice made Govinda, who was a guest on the show, think about those moments with his mother.

The show, which provides a platform to children 5 to 15 years is judged by Shreya Ghoshal, composer duo Shekhar-Ravjiani and Vishal Dadlani.

The episode, that will go on air Saturday, will see the top 10 finalists singing from the disco era.

The other nine singers on the show are Anmol Jaswal, Nirvesh Sudhanshubhai Dave, Debanjana Karmakar, Akash Sharma, Anjana Padmanabhan, Priyam Borpatra Gohain, Sankalp Yaduwanshi, Eman Chaudhary and Sugandha Amol Date.
