MUMBAI: : Delhi’s Tara Prasad and Nisha Rasaily, who hails from Sikkim, have emerged as the winners of dance-based show High Fever Dance Ka Naya Tevar.
“I was a martial artist before I started dancing and that gave me the confidence to pursue my career in dancing. Competing with the best on the national television was always my dream,” Tara, 25, said in a statement.
“I started giving solo auditions, but my options were limited. Nisha and I were keen on competing in a reality show. As luck would have it, we met through a common friend and paired up to audition for ‘High Fever…’ which marked the beginning of our career.”
Nisha, on the other hand, had joined the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram which taught her many things in life.
She admitted that “High Fever…” also taught her many things about the industry, life and dance.
“Being in the show gave us an opportunity to work with the best judges and choreography team,” said the 26-year-old.
The show that gave a platform to dancing ‘jodis’ (pairs) from across the nation was judged by actress Esha Gupta, choreographer and director Ahmed Khan and dancer Salman Yusuff Khan.
Tara and Nisha were announced as the winners during the show’s grand finale, which was aired on &TV on a Sunday. They received the prize money of Rs 10 lakh along with the trophy.
“The best memory for us on the show was during the Mother’s Day special, when my mom and Nisha’s sister were invited to take a seat in the judge’s panel,” recalled Tara.
“That moment brought Nisha and her sister even closer, making it even more special for us. Also, we met our idols – Saroj Khan, Madhuri Dixit and our mentor Puneet Pathak here which made our ‘High Fever…’ journey extremely memorable,” he added.
The winners are planning to shift to Mumbai to establish their careers in Bollywood as choreographers.
“We plan to start by assisting choreographers and work hard to climb up the ladder and survive in this competitive industry,” said Tara.
