Just as he ended his performances, the audience gave him a standing ovation. The eight-year-old first rose to fame with his performance on the reality TV show India's Got Talent.

Speaking to Ellen, Akshat Singh said, "I went to India's Got Talent to show the country that a motu (fat person) can also dance."

Akshat further discussed his dance regime and said that he practiced for three hours every day.

"Agar gaadi me petrol nai jaega to gaadi kaise chalega (If there's no petrol in the car, how will the car run)?" quipped Akshat while talking about his diet and why he needs to eat a lot!

Ellen also shook a leg with the wonder kid before gifting him a small bike with Akshat's name.
