Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha is looking forward to judging the upcoming season of Star Plus celeb dance reality show Nach Baliye. “After judging Indian Idol junior (2015) which I really enjoyed I was looking forward to something as good as better on TV hence when Nach came way, I said yes for it as it is one of the oldest and most loved dance reality shows, now in its 8th stint.”
Sonakshi loves to dance right from childhood, “I have enrolled in Terence Lewis and Shamaik Davar classes. Performing on stage shows is one of the best parts of my acting job.”
Talking about the format she says. “It is interesting for we don’t judge them only on dance but their chemistry as a couple. It is really interesting to come across couples who are in different stages of their relationships e.g. one have just gone come together and other have been wedded for over 20 years and still act as newbie couples . Many of them are non dancers as well so how they support each other would be fun to watch.”
Sonakshi will not be careful with her words as the contestant is celebrities, “I am honest and say what I feel and this is what endears me to people. Having said that I am smart enough to put my views forward in a manner that does not hurt anyone, as that is not nature of the show.”
So what do you feel is more important winning or taking part? “Participation any day and enjoying the journey towards the end. One needs to be positive throughout as let’s face it you can’t always win.”
How do you take failure? “As I take victory, I don’t let anything really affect me beyond a point. If I succeed I feel happy but don’t go about shouting from roof tops. Similarly during my share of downsides, I feel sad but then move on, as life rolls on.”
We are excited for this season’s Nach Baliye, are you?
