How excited are you to be back as a judge for Super Dancer?
It’s such an exciting feeling! It is India’s most loved dance show for children and I’m thrilled to be back to witness these incredibly talented kids. I truly missed being on the sets.
What is the concept behind this year’s theme, Nachpan Ka Tyohaar?
Nachpan Ka Tyohar is all about celebrating the talent and ingenuity of these incredible kids. We will be embarking on this journey around Holi. The theme is playful and I am sure people across the world are going to love it.
Super Dancer has set a benchmark in bringing in fresh talent every year. What’s your take?
Honestly, I feel it’s such a great platform for budding dancers. With a show like Super Dancer, so many get the opportunity to showcase and improve their talent, which is wonderful.
Tell us something about this year’s contestants.
I think every year there’s something new. It’s exciting that we get to witness this starting the auditions. The contestants this time have really surprised me with their ingenuity, humour, discipline and their inspiration behind it. They’ve all put so much heart and soul to their acts, it’s not easy to shortlist but we had to choose the best among the best.
Last year, everyone saw great rapport among the judges—Geeta Kapur, Anurag Basu and you. What should the audience expect this season?
Ah, I can’t reveal that but it’s definitely getting bigger than anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s double the fun and I believe the audiences will have a blast watching the show. It will be worth the wait.
What do you have to say about the hosts – Rithvik Dhanjani and Mamaji and their equation?
They’re so wonderful, sweet and talented. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts. We all have so much love and adoration for them. It’s truly amazing to have them with us in this journey.
What according to you is Super Se Bhi Uperrr… performance?
It’s something totally jhakaas and full of masala and entertainment. There’s nothing beyond a Super Se Bhi Uperrr performance for me.
What are the challenges of being a judge in a kid’s reality show?
They’re all so cute and talented that it becomes very hard to rate their performances. Wish we could give them all 10/10.
Your Sunday Binge is very famous among the viewers. Any plans of starting something new like this on the sets of Super Dancer Chapter 4?
Love the idea, I might just do it. Already thinking of my deserts now.
