    Aaj shaam vo awards function jaa ke raheNge.

    What additional information does ke raheNge provide that jaaeNge does not.

    That he is set upon it, and will have his way. "jaaeNge" simply means "would go".

    Also, this is not specific to jaa, but basically xx ke raheNge is the pattern.

    Example: aap ko bhuuk ho na ho, ham to khaanaa khilaa ke raheNge.

    hii can be added for greater emphasis: ________ ke/kar hii raheNge / chhoReNge / saaNs leNge.

    ^ To add to Alfaaz's options, also "... kar ke (hii) dam leNge", "... kar ke (hii) chain leNge", or "... kar ke (hii) maaneNge". "kar" can be any verb here.

    marrish SaaHIb, as would now be clear this is not what is meant by the expression and just to follow up from others:
    The general pattern is .… ke raheNge, as UM SaaHIb has pointed out and as Alfaaz SaaHib and greatbear have respectively said the use of hii is for greater emphasis and almost any verb can go on the dotted line.
    By way of example, a similar construct but with a different in meaning is … ke dekhaa deNge.
    …. and ladies & gentlemen, if you wish to discuss this latter expression further then please make a new thread. Here too any verb can be filled on the dotted line.
