The contestants were also trained by acting guru Kishore Namit Kapoor, who has trained biggies like Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra. Having taken an acting workshop from the master himself, the contestants had a chance to polish their acting skills and being natural in front of the camera. To enhance their dancing skills, the contestants were trained by choreographer Mudassar Khan, who gave the contestants tips on how to make themselves more graceful, charismatic and engage the audiences while they perform on stage.

Having changed their looks and given them characters that are poles apart from what the contestants are like in real life, Lalit ensured that he got the best out of each of these contestants.

Talking about his time with the contestants, Lalit said, “I was quite impressed by the contestants here. While in the beginning I thought it would be difficult for Okasana to pull the act off, it turned out that she managed very well. She was a complete surprise package. Apart from Okasana, I felt Sonam and Akshay were fantastic too. I wish the contestants all the luck for this is just the beginning of their journey.”
