The couple who has been rejecting Nach Baliye since last year is finally set to participate in the dance reality show this year. Even earlier this year they were hesitant to give a go ahead for the show but now it seems they have made up their mind and you will see the reel life turned real life couple Vishambharnath Maheshwari and Rajshri Maheshwari, aka Sanjeev Seth
and Lata Sabharwal Seth
from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
in Nach Baliye season 6
While Sanjeev who says he is excited and nervous at the same time says, "It is an as yet unexplored territory for us but we will manage to conquer!" his partner Lata is more vocal about giving the nod.
Says Lata, "We had been avoiding it since last year due to some or the other reason and we were saying kabhi haan, kabhi naa and that we would give it a thought next year but then finally I think we were destined to participate. Now that we are on it definitely feels great to be part of the show."
This time round the couple feels that everything has fallen in place, "Even this year we had second thoughts when they offered it to us since my baby boy is just 5 months old but they were after us and are adjusting a lot according to my comfort. The choreographers are even ready to come to my home and teach us while the shoot place luckily is very close to my residence. So seeing all this we agreed to do it. And of course, Nach Baliye is a brand name anyone would want to get associated with," elaborates Lata.
It also helped that the couple are a part of a show which is being aired on the same channel as Nach Baliye. So both, the channel Star Plus as well as the producers of Yeh Rishta... are being co-operative, says Lata, "As it is Rajan Shahi
's production unit has been very accommodating towards me. I am shooting for only 6 hours a day and that too only for 10 days a month and even for Nach Baliye the shoot will be once a week, so I don't feel there will be any problem as such."
There are various advantages too, that the couple feel they will have now that they are on board. "Well, the most important advantage is that with all the dancing involved I think I will be able to knock off the left over 6 kgs of my extra weight I have gained during my pregnancy," laughs Lata.
And on a serious note adds, "Also at this age and stage of our career where both of us are playing parents of youngsters in a daily soap there is not much variety we can get to do in our field. It is difficult to find good opportunities so this type of a different show is definitely an advantage for us to showcase our skills."
Amongst the two, while Sanjeev comes across as the shy one, Lata is a graceful dancer who enjoys shaking a leg even at parties and has also done a dance reality show Saas V/s Bahu... Kaun Kisse Nachayega
on Sahara One
. So, how are they preparing for this latest assignment? "The dance reality show I did was almost 7 years back and things have changed a lot since then... but yes, I do enjoy dancing and thus I am very much looking forward to it too. While I and Sanjeev have performed for award functions it is not the same when it comes to a dance reality show where you are competing with other celeb dancers. So I am leaving everything on the choreographers who will have to guide us totally."
Well, from our side we wish all the luck to these brand new parents who are set for on an exciting new venture. All the best Sanjeev and Lata for Nach Baliye!
