Last week Boogie Woogie Mummy's Championship had the first round of elimination, where 30 mothers from all over the nation competed to fulfill their hidden desires of dancing. Ten out of the thirty were selected to go to the next round.
The Telly Buzz team talks to four of the ten contestants who compete for the winning title.
I am Sonali, from Kolkatta. I have a six year old daughter and a two year old son. My daughter is in Kolkatta with my parents, and I am here with my son, I am baby sitting and dancing, so it just gets hectic for me at times. My sister was a participant, but unfortunately she couldn’t make it to the top 10. I couldn’t make her stay here with me, so she’s gone back to Kolkatta. My husband passed away in the Tsunami, I guess everyone knows about it after the last episode, so life at times gets tough, but as they say, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going… Hopefully my daughter should join me in a few days time; she’ll be there to cheer me in the next episode! The experience here has been great, the people here are extremely nice, we get to wear such new outfits, and flaunt in costumes, it feels great to be a part of this show!
I am Suneeta from
am Megha, 34 years old. I have two daughters. I do not know any
classical form of dancing, I used to dance as a kid, and I have got that
in me from my mom. She is an excellent dancer. I am from Jai Hind
college, Mumbai, I used to take part in the cultural events in college.
I quit dancing after marriage. One day, I performed in my daughter’s
school event, and the principle was very impressed and she asked me to
come and begin teaching in her school, so now I am a part time dance
teacher. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to let out my
talent, I am having a blast here, with the make up, the costumes, the
photo shoots, and all the attention, it just feels out of this world!
the mummies the very best. One can learn a lot from these ladies, who
are striving at various ages to fulfill their desires. That’s what we
call 'Living life to the core'.
