We have been hearing news of couples being approached for Nach Baliye and couples declining it as well.
Lata Sabarwal Seth who essays the role of Rajshree in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
on Star Plus
and her real life husband Sanjeev Seth
who plays her on screen husband Vishambharnath in the show were offered Nach Baliye this season but they have declined the offer.
While we have seen couples vying to be a part of Nach Baliye, this was indeed a surprise for the fans of this lovely couple. We asked Lata what made them take this decision, "Well, our baby is very small and I couldn't haven coped up with everything from promotions to rehearsals. There is a lot to it and it will take lots of my time. I can't leave my small baby for such longs hours and take up Nach Baliye," says the mother of three month old Aarav.
She went on to say about her working pattern now that she has resumed shooting for Yeh Rishta..., "I just resumed shooting for Yeh Rishta... and I shoot for few hours only and not for the seven hours that I have committed. Its quite flexible and easy and hence I rejoined the show but now Nach would be time consuming for me and I can't take it up."
This is the second time the duo declined Nach Baliye says Lata, "The best part is I was offered Nach, last year too but at that time I was pregnant and this time the baby is really small. My mother and my mother-in-law both are very cooperative and they are happy to take care of him but as a mother I too have to be there."
When it comes to dancing Sanjeev Seth
is all game for it, "Just like being a bathroom singer I am a bathroom dancer as well and I don't mind dancing in a reality show. I am already dancing in couple of episodes of Yeh Rishta too..." However when asked about Nach Baliye, Sanjeev too shares Lata's sentiments and says, "We are already doing Yeh Rishta... so there is no way we can give so much time for Nach Baliye! Our baby is too small and we both need to devote time for him."
However there is still hope for the makers of Nach Baliye as Lata is open to the offer if it happens a little later, "I am still contemplating on the decision whether to go for it or not. If in case they start shooting late we might think about it but at this point of time we are not saying a 'yes' to it in any case. If the show starts by November and December then we might think" she ended.
Since Sanjeev Seth
was busy with his shoot, he was unavailable for any comment.
