Hrithik Roshan, who charmed everyone with his perfect moves and revealed his passion for dance says that judging is tough. Speaking to the media he said that, he has never been through so much upheaval in life and that he cried every time a contestant was eliminated. “When I signed the show I thought I will easily be able to pick my favourites but one after the other, each dancer was exceptional. Picking from 30 thousand to 51 to 21, I have never been through so much emotional upheaval in life. Dancers have a certain aura, a certain peace on their face when you watch them dance and that comes across in the show. STAR Plus has achieved a dream. People have gone beyond their limits for this show. I feel blessed that so many people will get such a fantastic platform through me. It is a dream come true for me,” he said. He even went to the extent of giving each one of them his personal phone number.Just Dance is a mission across the globe to find the best dancers. “Apart from the grand prize of Rs 1 crore and a car, the main attraction is that the winner will get immortalized in a video with me. The money can be spent and will get over but this will also remain with him/ her. It can become their show reel,” he added.
Just Dance has both Indian participants as well as contestants from abroad. Hrithik says that “We have this mindset of geographical boundaries. In my opinion the contestant who sells fruits in Chandigarh and has learnt dance by watching others, is as good a dancer as Anjuli from the US who has trained in contemporary dance since childhood. Dance and music is universal. ”
Asked about dancers he idolize I idolized, “Michael Jackson and the God of formless dance Shammi Kapoor,” he said.
