You are the youngest contestants in JDJ 8, does that make you scared or nervous?
No, why would I be nervous? I am not nervous at all.
Tell us something about your dance background.
I started dancing when I was in the seventh standard. I participated in Dance India Dance Lil Masters 2 in 2012, and I won. After that, I was acting in Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap and now again I am doing a dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
What prompted you to join Jhalak?
I always wanted to be a part of Jhalak. To enter, you either have to be a choreographer or a celebrity.
Were you more confident since you have won Dance India Dance (DID)?
Yes, of course. After doing a reality show, you get the confidence to perform better.
What do you have to say about the Jhalak judges?
I am a big fan of Ganesh Hegde. It is really nice to perform in front of him. Shahid Kapoor sir is also a great dancer; I had danced with him when he came to DID.
What is your expectation from this show?
I hope I learn a lot of things in dance. There is always something new to discover.
How well do you get along with your dancing partner Vaishnavi?
Vaishnavi and I have known each other from a long time which is a good thing.
Is there a strategy that you are following to win the show?
I try to do my best in every performance; rest is in the hands of the judges. I want to set hearts racing with my dance performances.
