Hi To all my fans and critiques,
Thank you for all the birthday wishes. Im overwhelmed by your love and affection. This season has been the most fruitful for me and my team. We've won the most no of POD awards and grand salutes. I am truly indebted to the contestants I got this season. From Kruti whom I just adore for her expressions and infinite grace(real indian beauty), to Vandana- easily mouldable and who had such a beautiful spirit and charm, to Ameeth who was a full on performer, to Parvez who was a complete entertainer and a natural, making us laugh our guts out in rehearsals, to Jack- the most adorable and hardworking kid, whose hip hop style is unmatched by any contestant in the show and is years ahead of his time , to Amar who truly for me is a Star - his growth map- as he was like raw stone polished into a real diamond and thats a great achievement to be able to match trained, experienced dancers, to Shakti who never took our association for granted and whom I deeply respect for her commitment, dedication and focus in making any Dance, any style, look effortless, poised and showing the world what a true Dancing Star is made of. Each one of them worked so hard and the most amazing thing is that we had such a lot of fun doing it. Truly sometimes its the journey that's more important than the final destination and the journey has been a sheer joy. I feel so sad that DID is gonna come to a close.
Shakti and Amar...what can I say about them...they both have worked very hard to be where they are at. Both have the charisma, talent and personality to take on the title of the Best Dancing Star. I am so proud of each one of them. Their technique, timing, chemistry and sync in duets is unmatched. Also they have great bodies and screen presence to match with their talent in their solos.
Thank you for demonstrating so vociferously how much you understand what real dancing is and appreciating the finest details that sometimes I wd feel that it wd be lost on audiences and never get noticed. I truly believe that the 'God is in the details.' My assistant showed me some post as to how many of you have Dissected my contestant performances and pointed out on the finishing and detailing. Im quite impressed with your astute observation and judgement. It feels like its been worth it. A request to the forum members though, that you should go easy on other masters and not undermine their talent or disrespect them. I found some posts on them, offensive. I personally think that all though Ive received several accolades for our work, the competition at times has been tough. I also believe that each contestant including other teams has worked very hard knowing the importance and value of being in the contest. I personally love each and every contestant as they have something endearing about them. From Dharmesh to Binny, to Punit, they are all wonderful kids and talented. I wish them all the very best life has to offer. Please vote for whom you think is deserving and make him or her win. This is the crucial week for them, so show them your love guys and girls. This coming week is the last week and the finale will be on 23rd April. I'm gonna so miss the 16 hr work schedule, our sweaty tired bodies, the work pressure to deliver and live up to the promise, the sleep overs at the rehearsal studio, the dinner time fun conversations and imitation rounds, the technical rehearsals, the distinct smell of the studio set, the highs and lows of a performance. Its been a fab journey..... Love them all.
Thought, I'd leave you with some of my thoughts on life now that Ive grown older.Ha ha. See you soon. Will miss you all. A big thank you to all the dance Enthusiasts and Forum members. Here's me Signing off.
Love n Respect,
Live in dance...forever!
This is the philosophy with which I live by:
Life isnt fair, Accept it. Yet Make the best of what you have, with what you can and where you are at. Do not put labels to yourself and put yourself in a box. Do not define yourself. It will limit yourself to the wonderful experience called LIFE. See yourself as constantly changing, metamorphising.
Love...even if it hurts. If you truly love them, set them free. However Trade not your freedom for anything... Be, who you truly want to be. Above all, to thine ownself be true. Live a little for yourself and sometimes, a little more for others. The Universe will take care of the rest. That's the secret to success and happiness. Amen.
