The contestants on
Zara Nachke Dikha
were asked to recall a funny instance from their past. Ace dancer Sushant Singh Rajput blushed.
He revealed that before he became an actor, he was a part of Shiamak Davar’s Dance Company. His group was on a world tour with Aishwarya Rai (now Mrs Bachchan). When Rajput found that his master and choreographer of the show, Davar needed a tall guy to lift the former beauty queen for one of the dance sequences, he immidiately volunteered to do so.
Rajput says that he was awe-struck when he actually lifted Rai-Bachchan. He says that he actually forgot to bring her down and held on to her for over a minute, though the sequence should not have lasted more than 30 seconds. The actress didn’t know what happened. She later improvised a few steps. Wanting to escape the taunts of his fellow dancers, Rajput disappeared after the performance got over.
