Interview

About doing Jhalak
Honestly speaking many would not have even participated in a dance reality show after winning one. But, personally I always wanted to do this. I took some time to achieve whatever I have today, but I believe that this is just a beginning for me and have a long way to go. I want to upgrade both my dancing and acting skills. I get inspired looking at Shah Rukh Khan, the way he has established himself today makes me look up to him.

So, will you miss anything from your DID days in Jhalak?
Well I think I am going to miss Geeta maa (Kapoor) terribly. The sweet, affectionate gestures of her is something which made my DID days even more special.

About his competitors in the show
For me Raftaar and Scarlett are my toughest competitors. Both of them are excellent dancers and I am pretty sure that they are going to give me a hard fight in Jhalak.
