No one can compare to Madhuri Dixit: Lauren
Mumbai: Lauren Gottlieb, winner of third season of 'So You Can Think You Can Dance', is jittery about performing in front of Bollywood dancing diva Madhuri Dixit on 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6'.
Madhuri is co-judging the show with filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-director Remo Fernandes.
"I think it is good to be nervous. I am always nervous when I perform. It gives me that adrenaline rush. I think it will be extra nerve-wracking to perform in front of Madhuri. She had been brought to my eyes last year. No one can compare to her," Lauren told us.
But at the same time, she feels that "both, in films and dancing, I feel I can relate to her. She just has a remarkable career and I think I can learn so much from her", she added.
Lauren confesses that she would be unable to do justice to any of Madhuri's songs. The Indian actress has dazzled everyone with her dance numbers "Ek Do Teen", "Chane ke khet mein" and "Dhak dhak karne laga".
"I don't know if I can dance to one of her songs. I don't know if anyone can do justice as she does," she said.
Starting her career in India with dance film, "ABCD", Lauren is "excited to push myself to my limits" on the show starting June 1.
"The person I am, I can compete to an extent. I can have fun with it, but at the end of the day I want everyone to do their best. I feel the only person who I can compete with is myself. I am excited to push myself to my limits. I am a fan of all the artists. If anyone needs help, I will help and we will build that friendship," she said.
The actress looks at "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa" as a challenge.
"It will be difficult. This will be a completely new way of dancing and moving. The music and culture of dancing here is so foreign to me. I want to try to pick it up," she said and added that she is trying to watch previous seasons on YouTube.
