Shyam has come a long way in this show. Mudassar has been Shyam's guru since he began his dancing journey. Being a part of Mudassar's Fire Academy of Dance, Shyam and Mudassar have known each other for years.
TellyBuzz got in touch with Shyam Yadav to know more about his experience throughout the show, his association with Mudassar Khan's dance academy, his favorite contestant and much more...
How has been your journey in DID Season 4 so far?
It's a great
experience. It feels great that I have been appreciated by the judges and grand
master Mithun Chakraborty on this platform. In fact I was selected 5 times as
the best dancer of the week. I have got a unique name as crazy legs by my co
contestants because they believe that my foot movements seem to be crazy. I was
dancing under Mudassar Sir's team named as 'Mudassar Ki Mandli' and I am the
only contestant from his team who is the finals but I have spent the best time
with my team mate especially with Swarali Karulkar and Dhiraj Bakshi.
What do you find best about this season of DID?
The best thing about this season is that most of contestants have their unique style in their dancing. If you have seen the previous seasons, there was only one or two contestants who had created their unique style of dance like in DID season 3 there was Raghav bhai whose forte was slow motion dance style and thus was titled as slow motion king and similarly few in other seasons as well. But in this season maximum number of contestants had created their unique style like I have reinvented techno style, Manan Sachdeva from 'Shruti Ke Shandar' had created his unique style as swat and similarly rest of the contestant too have created the same. So from this season audience got to see variety in dancing with a touch of uniqueness.
How is your equation with Mudassar Khan?
and I know each other since many years. I was a student in his Fire Dance Academy from past seven years. The day I have joined his Academy and till today,
I have learnt a lot from Mudassar Sir. He knows everything about me. He knows
me and understands me more than my Mom. Though we knew each other from long
back, but he has always treated me as other contestant without being biased. He
did not disclose our relation because it might have created the thought that he
is being partial. But later when he disclosed our relation to everybody, everyone
was very happy to know about our relation. He also showed everyone a slide show
of our old pictures and Mudassar Sir hugged me on the stage with affection.
This was the best moment of my life.
Which is the one quality of Mudassar Khan you want to inculcate in you?
is so down to earth. He is not double faced person and is very genuine with a
clean heart. His simplicity is the best quality which I want to inculcate in me.
Tell us something about your association with Mudassar Khan's fire dance academy?
When I was a kid I used to participate in School's annual day functions and other small functions. So my parents thought of putting me in good dance academy. My tuition teacher told us about Fire Dance Academy as her daughter was already learning dance from there. And I learned dance there from the Five Dance Academy for 7 years.
Who is your favorite contestant?
My favorite contestant is Swarali Karulkar but unfortunately she is eliminated from the show and I also have favorite contestants from previous seasons who are Paulson Thomas from season 1, Dharmesh Yelande from season 2 and Raghav from season 3. I really admire them and hope that I get a chance to perform with them.
Who is the toughest competitor?
I am very much confident because I challenge myself every week to give better performance than the previous. So I am the toughest competitor for myself. But other than me, Vicky Das from 'Firoz Ki Fauj' is a tough competitor for me.
TellyBuzz wishes Shyam all the best for his remaining performances in the show Dance India Dance season 4!
