Mithun Da rags Master Marzi Pestonji
When young Amit and Falon from Master Marzi Pestonji's team on Zee TV's DID Doubles set the stage ablaze with a passionate dance of destructive love that culminated with the two lovers commiting suicide in a hair-raising dramatic climax, the audience was left speechless before it roared with applause.
This riveting dance act to the song Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil Se Aah Nikalti Rahi had such an emotional impact on Grand Master Mithun Da that he struck a conversation about "intense love" with the contestants, asking if they have loved anyone so dearly and whether they had drawn inspiration from their personal feelings for such a powerful act. Having heard them out, Dada now turned his attention to the man who had choreographed the act ... Master Marzi Pestonji!
Posing the same question to Marzi, Dada was hoping to hear a story of deep love from the dance master. Marzi, on the other hand, just replied with a casual "No Dada, not really!" Not willing to take no for an answer, Dada prodded him not once, not twice but thrice as to whether he had ever loved a woman so intensely that he could choreograph such a passionate act. After saying he hadn't loved a woman "that intensely" twice already, the usually shy Marzi felt cornered by the fairly insistent Dada and almost like an exasperated child, burst out saying, "Dada, please! It's OK. You see? I am still alive ... I haven't commited suicide for anyone yet!"
While everyone thought Dada might take offence to Marzi's outburst, he burst out laughing saying, "Ha ha ha! You had to see Marzi's expression. That tortured look was simply priceless. Very very cute!" The audience, Mithun Da and all three masters including Marzi (who had turned a beetroot red by then!) were all in splits over Marzi's ragging session. Looks like Dada's found a new "Jay" in Marzi!
