Adolescent actor Faisal Khan already has a full-fledged career to his credit – he started his career in Dance India Dance Lil Masters 2, which he won. Thereafter he played the lead role in Bharat Ka Veer Putra- Maharana Pratap. And currently he is the youngest contestant on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8.

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.

Bac.jpgWhat 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.
