Angad Hasija, who had been leaving us spellbound with his acting chops on STAR Plusâ€™ Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai, surprised us with his dancing talent on Zara Nachke Dikha. All his performances, solo or group, got him praises from the judges â€“ Shilpa Shetty, Arshad Warsi and Vaibhavi Merchant.So his eviction from the show surprised his fans that have been rooting for their favourite star on the show. Hasija performed contemporary on Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyaara Hai.Angad, who takes everything in his stride, is unruffled with the outcome. The actor opines, â€œI am not disappointed with the outcome as I have learnt to take things positively. I tried to give my best and what has pleased me the most, is that the judges were in tears while I was exiting the show.
The entire crew and my co-contestants including girls cried for me and with this, I realised that I have made a place for myself in their hearts. With this show, I wanted to show the other facet to me. I have shown my acting skills on Bidaai and with this I wanted to bring to display the dancer in me.â€
The judging trio appreciated his performance but found the act lacking in dance moves. â€œThe judges loved my performance and act but felt that it could be better had I incorporated more dance steps into it. I havenâ€™t lost anything with my departure from the show but have made so many friends here. I was touched to see them crying for me and it felt so privileged,â€ he adds.
Says buddy Akkshat, who was surprised after Angadâ€™s eviction on the show, â€œAngad, Siddhesh and I grew closest on the show thus his eviction left us teary-eyed. He performed really well and in a way excelled himself at his last performance but I think judges were expecting more from him so their decision went against him. Angad has grown a lot as when the show launched he was blank as a dancer. His USP is his flexibility which makes him a poised and graceful dancer. He wasnâ€™t really confident for his solo performance last week but we had complete faith in him and he lived up to it. We are going to miss him on the show. He is the most honest and polite of the lot.â€
Sushant who seconds Akkshatâ€™s views says, â€œI am extremely surprised but at the end of the day itâ€™s a reality show and you might not end up getting the desired results. He was one of the finest dancers from our group and his performance was very neat but I am unable to fathom the judging criteria. I think a contestant must be judged on his performance and not on the concept and choice of song as it never happens to be his call.â€
