Finally it seems Chaitanya Choudhury has managed to get out of the Akshad image in Kahin To Hoga. His performances in Star One’s Zara Nachke Dikha has earned him a new set of fans and also allowed him to re-establish himself as a versatile performer.
He openly admits that the girls have an edge over guys in the competition simply because they are more graceful. “There are two main reasons for this – their costumes and nakhras! Jokes apart when girls dance, their body language changes completely, making them much more attractive and graceful to watch. However, when guys dance the energy levels are much higher. The reason behind this is the way in which Indian guys and girls are brought up. While the boys will be encouraged to take up more sports and outdoor activities, girls will be more into singing and dancing”, quips he.
Who are his favorite contestants in the show? “Amongst girls I think Mouni is undoubtedly the best and the most graceful dancer, while in our team I feel Bakhtyaar is way ahead of others”, says Chaitanya without having to think about the answer.
Chaitanya has won many accolades for his performance in the show. Which one, according to him is his best performance? “I feel the episode where I dance to Saawariya is the best”. Despite his good performances, Chaitanya had to sit in the bench for a week during the show. Considering his popularity, does he think that if public voting was called for, the table should have turned in his favor? “Well, that is not really important, but whatever be the case, time will tell because the format during the grand finale will be different”, says Chaitanya as he concludes.
