Here's Sushil sharing his experience on being part of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
What was the reason to take up the show?
I had always wanted to learn new things and when I was approached for Jhalak I decided to take up the show because I felt that I will get to learn new things with this platform.
How are you preparing yourself for Jhalak?
I am practicing hard and I know that my choreographers are always there with me to get things right and help me learn easily.
Have you danced ever before in your life?
No, I haven't. I was the person who always used to hide when it came to dancing. I don't know dancing at all. I haven't ever danced even in the marriage ceremonies in my family (laughs).
So, are you finding it difficult to learn?
As a beginner, I am finding it a little difficult to learn, but I am working hard and I know I can do it.
Are you well versed with the contestants on the sets?
Yes, I am well versed with all the contestants of the show. They all are like my good friends and they are very co-operative.
You are going to tap your feet in front of the big names of the industry. Are you nervous?
Yes, a little bit! But, there's nothing to get nervous as I am a beginner and the judges know that I am a learner.
How has life changed after KBC?
Life has changed amazingly well after KBC. I am now easily getting recognized by the people and getting some of the wonderful opportunities.
You have a dream of becoming an IAS officer. How far have you reached in this journey?
I have given my exams this year but it was not satisfactory according to me so I am planning to have a go at it again. Hopefully it will go better next time.
