After failing to garner TRPs despite all the drama and histrionics, the Colors reality show, Dancing Queen, makes a last ditch attempt at drawing audiences by roping in Shveta Salve as the wild card entrant. Shveta Salve will mentor Aashnay, a small-time model and actress, and help her win the title.

The sultry actress says, “I’m on this show to showcase Aashnay’s talent, not mine. She’s a very strong girl, who’s been working to support her mother and brother after her father’s death.”

No competition
The show boasts of some strong contenders in Sambhavna Seth, Shwetha Menon, Anita Hassanandani and Barkha Bisht, but this new pair fears none. Salve doesn’t consider anyone a competition because it’s a contest among the girls and not the mentors. “It’s one of the girls who will wear the winner’s crown.. not us,” she says.

Salve though, believes that she isn’t completely equipped enough to become a dancing guru. She’s here only to help Aashnay fulfill her dream. “I won’t steal Aashnay’s thunder but ensure that she gets the most out of the experience,” she says.

Films now
Salve’s dancing skills have been put to test in her first reality show, Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa, three years back. After that it was a self-imposed lull because Salve didn’t want to continue doing run-of-the-mill shows.

Dancing Queen may also be a platform for Salve to promote her soon-to-be-released film, Bhanwra. A Dharmesh Darshan thriller, Bhanwra is in the post-production stage and the actress is keeping her “fingers and toes crossed” for her maiden big-screen venture.
