Mithun Chakraborty recalls his struggling phase to save some money

Akash Singh’s story and performance leaves the judges emotional.

Akash Singh, who performed a pole dance at Color’s upcoming show Hunarbaaz – Desh ki Shaan left the judges emotional. Veteran actor Mitun Chakraborty recalled the time when he used to struggle to dance just to get some food to eat.

The veteran actor said, “I thought no one would cast me as a hero, hence I decided to become a villain, moreover a dancing villain. I used to walk to work so that I could save money. I used to dance in big parties because I would get food to eat.” He also added, “I am not lecturing you lekin ‘Bachcha apne sapno ko itna majbur kardo ke woh sharma jaaye’.”

Akash Singh received a standing ovation for his performance. He revealed that it was his first time performing on the stage. He didn’t have any money to buy a place to live in Mumbai, thus had to live under a tree. He used to practice using the poles on the streets.


In an interview, the co-judge Parineeti Chopra said, “We are never given a script nor told what to say. We have never met these contestants and react to their performances as it happens. I think if there is an emotional story, why wouldn’t we share it? The talent is not fake and they get just one take to perform. The reality is very real on the show.”
