Beautiful and talented actress Kanica Maheshwari, who has already gained a lot of appreciations by enacting Meenakshi in Star Plus' top ranked show Diya Aur Baati Hum, is now getting appreciations from the viewers for her dance moves in the celebrity couple dance reality show Nach Baliye season 6.
TellyBuzz spoke to Kanica to know more about her feeling of burning the dance floor of Nach Baliye with her baliye Ankur Ghai.
Here it is what Kanica has to share with us...
How is the feeling of being a part of Nach Baliye with Ankur?
It's an amazing feeling to be a part of such a big show and that too with my husband Ankur. I am feeling fortunate that I have got an opportunity to spend time with Ankur for some long time after my marriage. It's an amazing feeling.
How difficult was it for you to convince Ankur to take part in the show who is a non-dancer? What was your motive to take part in the show?
A lot! It took me really a long time to convince Ankur to take part in the show because it's not his comfort zone and leaving his work in Delhi and coming to Mumbai and settling down here and doing such a physical task was quite tough for him. I also had a tough time to convince him to take part in the show. According to a saying, if we love something and really want it then we do get it so I got it and I convinced Ankur. Initially, there wasn't any motive to take part in the show but now I have a motive to stay with Ankur more in the show and that's why we are working hard.
What kind of preparations you had to do before taking part in the show?
Nothing much! We just had to take some physical training to get ourselves prepared for the show.
How do you feel now when you are getting time to spend with Ankur?
It feels amazing because I have always wished to spend this kind of a time with Ankur. It's an amazing feeling to share a screen space with Ankur which makes me feel on cloud nine. God has been very kind to me and I feel very lucky.
How do you support each other in everything?
We just nurture each other and keep doing our work.
How are you managing things all together like your rehearsals and your show?
I am getting deprived of my sleep; I am only getting 3-4 hrs. of time to sleep every day. Diya Aur Baati Hum is a promising show and I don't want my stress myself as it will affect my acting and then my viewers won't say that I am not looking promising on-screen as Meenakshi.
What kind of support you get from your co-stars of Diya Baati? Do you take out some time to do your rehearsals on the sets?
All my co-stars and production people of Diya Baati have been really nice and kind towards me. They are quite supportive towards me. I don't get free time to do my rehearsals on the sets of Diya Baati while I am shooting for the show.
What kind of tips you have got from Bhabho (Neelu Vaghela) who was earlier a contestant in the show?
She keeps on telling me to keep calm and stay positive in life. We hardly shoot together because sometimes I am shooting for my track while she is not. So, we hardly get time to interact with each other that much.
What kind of reaction you get from your family?
Their reaction has been very positive. They feel that it is an unbelievable thing happening (smiles).
How do you feel about the reaction of the judges on each of your performances?
Unbelievable! Every week we think that we will get eliminated this week but people are voting for us, our choreographers are doing lots of hard work on our performances and our dedication is letting us to stay in the show for this long. It's very nice to get such comments from the judges.
What is the biggest challenge which you both are facing?
Physical tiredness is the biggest challenge we both are facing.
