TOI gets in touch with this diva to talk about her journey on ‘Jhalak…’ and lots more.
It’s been one of the toughest challenges I’ve ever undertaken physically and mentally! You need nerves of steel to go out there each week perform and be judged! I was most affected by the performance in which the dancer blanked and didn’t catch me because I fell on my spine and my existing back injury became ten times worse. But I want to stay on this platform and want to keep fighting for my place! I am loving the experience! I feel I’m learning growing and improving and that’s what this journey is all about. Unlike some others on the show I’m not a trained dancer but Deepak and I have tried a new style each week we have constantly taken risks and done something different because that’s where the real challenge lies. To be able to dance in as many styles as possible! And I’m eternally grateful to the audience and my family who have been so supportive and kept me going!
