'DID Super Moms' gives hope to mothers: Marzi Pestonji
New Delhi: Dance reality show 'Dance India Dance Super Moms' is a beacon of hope for mothers, who wish to pursue their "unfinished" passion for dance, says choreographer Marzi Pestonji, who is a judge on the show.
After a rigorous selection process, 16 finalists have been shortlisted for the show from across the country. The contestants have now been divided in a group of four, and they will be coached by four popular former 'Dance India Dance' contestants - Raghav Crockroaz Juyal, Prince Gupta, Siddhesh Pai and Jai Kumar Nair.
"It's a fabulous concept and it has given a lot of hope to the mothers. The show has given them a chance to finish their unfinished business," Marzi said at a press conference here on Thursday.
"I was shocked to see what they can do, from contemporary to aerials and fire acts, they have really shown their versatility," he added.
Anita Routela from Ghaziabad, as well as Manupriya Bhandari and Juliana from Delhi were three finalists from the show, who accompanied Marzi to address the media here at the conference.
Anita, who has a four-year-old daughter, said her in-laws were against her love for dance. But thanks to her husband's support, she was able to pursue her dream and landed in 'Dance India Dance Super Moms', which is also judged by Farah Khan and Terence Lewis.
Juliana, who is a dance teacher, says she participated in the show because of support of her friends and dance guru. Even Manupriya's family fully supported her to participate in the competition.
They were united in saying that women with some or the other talent must come out and pursue their passion.
The show airs on Zee TV and also features Bollywood's disco dancer Mithun Chakraborty in the role of Grand Master.
