for the first time recently had to learn a classical dance for a performance and the actor was in a fix. While Manish has earlier tried his hands at many dance styles, it would be his first time trying to learn the very difficult classical form.
Our source inform us, "Avika Gor
and Ssumier (both Manish's co-star) came to Manish's rescue as both are trained classical dancers. Between shots, Avika and Ssumier would be spotted teaching Manish the perfect postures needed in classical dance forms."
When we contacted Manish he said, "Honestly, I had a mental block when it came to classical dance and I never thought I would be doing it. However, recently at an event when I was asked to perform a classical dance, I took it up as a challenge."
And how did he go about learning it? "I know I wasn't able to do it perfectly but I made my best attempt at it and I am grateful that my costars stepped forward to help me. My two dear friends on the sets of Sasural Simar Ka
- Ssumier who is a trained classical dancer and Avika an ace dancer helped me sail through this tsunami! They first worked hard to dilute the machismo from my steps as classical needs delicate moves more than power and then they helped me correct my postures! I don't know how much perfection I could achieve in barely 2 days of practice but I could at least give a confident performance due to these two friends!"
Now that's the spirit, Manish!
