Talking about her participation in the show,
Dutee says, “I’d never imagined myself performing different dance forms and competing against the existing line-up of performers. Having said that, as a sportsperson, I love taking on new challenges thrown at me. I am used to performing in front of a live audience but this is going to be a new experience altogether.
Learning any new art form is not easy but with the help of my choreographer, I am excited about taking this up as a challenge and performing to the best of my capabilities.”
