Arshad WarsiEvery Friday and Saturday he reports at Film City to shoot for his first dance reality TV show, Zara Nachke Dikha for Star Plus. Actor-producer-director Arshad Warsi gets nostalgic on the sets because the experience reminds him of his life as a choreographer and of days when he attended dance competitions in colleges and judged them.

“I try and keep my temper and my tongue in control, but I cannot speak as per the script. If I like a performance, I go all out to laud it, but if I don’t, I don’t mince words. Maybe that’s why I appear to be the rude character amidst the judges on the panel,” he says.

He recalls how judging a dance contest at St Xavier’s College led him to meet his wife Maria. “Imagine if I didn’t go to her college that day, I wouldn’t have seen her and fallen in love with her. Life wouldn’t have been the same, right?” he laughs.
