Mumbai: We see our favorite characters performing different roles onscreen but life off camera is totally different from reel life, there is lots of Masti that goes on behind the scenes. Sometime stars break into fits of giggles while filming and there are times when emotions rules the hearts. On sets the team works for hours together and become just like a close nit family.
Doordarshan’s most popular reality Dance Show “Close up Bharat Ki Shan-Let’s Dance” has been seeing a roller coaster of emotions. There has been fun filled dances and some that have made the judges, crew as well as the audiences cry.
The two dynamic judges on the show, internationally renowned dancer choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and princess of bollywood dance Pony Verma balance the judges chair very well together. Sandip Soparrkar is strict yet fun loving and Pony Verma plays funny pranks all the time, making the atmosphere of elimination rounds easy and relaxed. The contestants shower all their love and affection with sweets and chocolates each time the judges come on the sets.
Sandip Soparrkar said, ” I am so glad the I am a part of Lets Dance show, each dancer here is so warm n loving, contestant Ankita feeds us with Bengali sweets everyday and Karishma writes sweet loving notes on my car. I feel humbled with all the love and affection.”
The show reached its semi final leg last week, top five couples will now dance off to win the grand dance trophy and loads of other prizes. The elimination that reached the semi round was an emotional one with all contestants and judges hugging each other.
Pony Verma Said, “I look forward to the shoot of Let’s dance for 2 reasons, one is to see the great & hardworking performers & other one is to eat the salads made by my co judge Sandip Soparrkar himself, Sandip has been getting my lunch from his home since the 1st day of the shoot. We crack jokes, gossip and make crazy shayaris with Aparshakti Khurana who is our host of the show, honestly we have become a trio on the sets !!!”
Close up Bharat ki Shaan Let’s Dance is one show that has been entertaining since its very first day. DD National brought in Kathak guru Sandeep Mahavir as a judge during the wild card episodes which brought another interesting twist to the dance reality show. The trio of Sandip Soparrkar, Pony Verma and Sandeep Mahavir along with the Aparshakti Khurana as the naughty host, talented Tejas Dattani and Radhika Das as dance mentors has made the show very interesting. Big cheers to Doordarshan and Gajendra Singh of Saai Baba Telefilms for a dhamakedar show.
