Mumbai, July 5 (IANS) Actor Arshad Warsi will be seen doing a Tango sequence on the upcoming finale episode of “Sabse Bada Kalakar”. He says dance — which he loves and pursued before taking up acting — is something he doesn’t get to do often now.
Arshad judges the show alongside Raveena Tandon and Boman Irani. The actor had just last month hurt his knee while doing a lift in a Tango dance sequence.
But he loved the fact that he got to dance.
“It was a great pleasure doing what I did and dance is something which I love doing and I don’t get a chance to do. So, be it Tango or Jazz, these are the dance forms I used to do before getting into movies as a choreographer of musicals in India,” Arshad said in a statement.
“I was very happy that I got a chance to dance for the finale episode of ‘Sabse Bada Kalakar’. Tango by itself is a very passionate and a very intense form of dance and Paldin, who is the choreographer, did a brilliant job. So yes, it was great fun, I enjoyed it and I hope more people get into doing Tango.
“I have done a lot of Bollywood dancing in movies, but dance forms like Tango is something that I don’t get to do often and I took full advantage of doing something that I am very passionate about,” he added.
The finale episode of the Sony Entertainment Television show, which will be aired this weekend, will see contestants Mahi Soni, Vrinda Gujral, Dhruv Acharya and Virad Tyagi competing against each other.
Ritu Shivpuri feels like Gulshan Grover of small screen
Actress Ritu Shivpuri, daughter of late actress Sudha Shivpuri, says she loves her look as an antagonist in new TV show “Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon” and compares it to Bollywood’s ‘badman’ Gulshan Grover.
Ritu’s look in the show is extremely Indian and is very ethnic yet modern.
“I love my look on the show as it is very different from me in real life and also because I’ve never been portrayed like this on TV before,” Ritu said in a statement.
“This character is very different from what my real self is. I feel as if ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’ is being shot like a movie and I am definitely like, ‘I’m the Gulshan Grover of the small screen’,” she added.
In the Star Plus show, Ritu plays Indrani Narayan Vashisht, mother of Advay Singh Raizada (Barun Sobti).
Meera Deosthale yearns to wear gowns
Actress Meera Deosthale got excited when she was asked to wear a gown for a particular sequence in TV show “Udann”. She says she doesn’t get to wear long dresses often.
“I don’t get to wear long dresses or gowns very often, so when the opportunity presented itself for ‘Udann’, I was really excited,” Meera, who plays the role of Chakor, said in a statement.
“I was also feeling apprehensive about being able to carry off this look on screen. Vijayendra (Kumeria), in fact, helped to calm my nerves and was extremely supportive throughout the shoot schedule. He even gave me some tips on how to emulate grace and elegance while wearing the gown,” she added.
“Udann” is aired on Colors.
