Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha reward Dance Deewane contestant with ₹51. Watch video
Veteran actors Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha are the latest celebrities to arrive on the sets of dance reality show Dance Deewane. The two watched everyone's performances and even rewarded a contestant.
Pallavi Tolye gave a stunning performance to Ja Re Ja O Harjai, which impressed both Dharmendra and Shatrughan. "You have proven it that there is no age limit to dancing," said Shatrughan. Dharmendra said, "I was part of a film called Dil Bhi Tera, Hum Bhi Tere. I was called upon to sign the movie. There were three cabins and I sat in the middle one, listening to what they intend to pay me. There were 3 co-producers. All of them got out ₹17 each and gave me ₹51. I consider those ₹51 lucky for me. I want to give you a shagun too, ₹51." While Pallavi was left surprised by his gesture, Shatrughan exclaimed 'how sweet'.
The sets were recently visited by veteran actors Asha Parekh, Helen and Waheeda Rehman as well. They had a fun time sharing anecdotes and interacting with fans and judges Madhuri Dixit, Tushar Kalia and Dharmesh Yelande.
Recently, as many as 18 crew members of the popular dance reality show had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, a film industry workers' union said. A spokesperson of Colors channel confirmed that a few members had contracted the virus.
