Filmmaker Anurag Basu made a hearing impaired dancer Harsh Dhara meet actor Ranbir Kapoor, when the actor came to promote his upcoming film on dance reality show Super Dancer.

Dhara had given a heartwarming performance during the audition of the show but could not make it to the competing rounds. However, when Kapoor came on the show where Basu is the judge, the latter invited the child dancer to meet the actor, who played a hearing impaired boy in the film Barfi!

“It was a big moment for Harsh. We went inside Ranbir’s van and I kept looking at Harsh to see his reaction. I turned to Ranbir and his face has more shine in his eyes than Harsh. He was looking at Harsh’s video with such joy.Ranbir’s character in the film Barfi! was similar to Harsh’s, a hearing impaired person who is full of life. Ranbir met him and it was a great moment for me,” says Basu.

“Dhara’s performance left an impact on the judges’ mind even after he left the show. When Ranbir came, Basu really wanted Harsh to meet Ranbir and vice versa,” says a source.
