Siddharth Shukla gives up on "gym" and "sleep" for Jhalak...
Siddharth Shukla, better known as Shiv of Colors’ Balika Vadhu, is one actor who has been going all out and putting his heart and soul into every performance of his in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 (BBC Worldwide), airing on the same channel.
Why do we say so? Well, the brawny man has given up on gymming and even sleep to perfect his moves.
“Everything has been very chaotic of late. Since, the set of Balika Vadhu is at Naigaon, it is one hour travelling one way every day.
After this, I go for the Jhalak rehearsals where I have to stay till late in the night to practice as I am such a splendid dancer (smiles sarcastically). This leaves me with no time to sleep,” avers Siddharth.
“I have been sleeping for just three to four hours a day. Since, I am sleep-deprived all the time, I try and take naps during my break hours in shoot or while I am travelling,” he adds.
So, no gym either? “There is no time for gym,” he states.
Talking about his friendship with the wildcard entrant Sana Saeed, he quips, “We have known each other since a very long time. Sana and I worked together in Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na.”
The artiste also talks about his phobia that bothers him a lot during his performances. “Last week, during my performance, I went in the wrong direction from my choreographer as I was too distracted,” he reveals.
What actually caused this distraction? “When we started the performance, my leg hit Soniya (his choreographer) and I got too conscious about her being hurt because of me. Hence, I just couldn’t concentrate on the performance and it showed. I have always had this phobia of hitting my dance partner. This is why whenever I dance I maintain a safe distance from the other as my intention is not to hurt anyone,” Siddharth maintains.
That’s really sweet Siddharth, but we just hope you conquer your fears and rock the Jhalak stage!!!
