Over the last three decades, Zee TV has been instrumental in providing the Indian youth with a global platform to showcase their singing, dancing, and acting talent. The channel’s most iconic dance reality show, Dance India Dance, also revolutionized the landscape of dance in the country when it first began to air in 2009. Over the last 13 years, the platform has stood testimonial to the sheer passion and love that India holds in its heart towards dance. After giving the audience a glimpse of this year’s mind-blowing talent through some interesting teasers, Zee TV recently launched its top-rated reality show for the youngest dancing talent in the country – DID L’il Masters Season 5.
Since its launch, viewers have been having a gala time watching the young dancing sensations perform wonderful acts during the audition rounds. But looks like they’re in for a double treat this weekend! Not only is the grand premiere episode of this season going on air, but we’re also set to witness the mega reunion of the three OG judges of DID – Remo D’Souza, Geeta Kapur and Terence Lewis after a hiatus of ten years on the stage of DID L’il Masters Season 5. While the OG trio along with this season’s judges – Sonali Bendre and Mouni Roy were mesmerized by all the acts put up by the Fantastic-15 during the shoot, it was Rishita Tanti’s performance to Alia Bhatt’s Dholida that made everyone groove. In fact, the 6-year-old was even dressed like Alia during her act and the whole performance was so adorable that everyone complimented her and even compared her to the Bollywood actress.
Geeta Kapur even asked for Rishita’s autograph, while Remo and Terence learnt the Dholida step from the 6-year-old contestant during the shoot. But that’s not it! Videos of her act have also gone viral, so much so that there are posts comparing Rishita and Alia’s similarities. Remixes of Rishita and Alia’s synchronized performances have also taken the social media by storm. While there has been so much of love pouring in for Rishita from across the country, the comments by Geeta Kapur and Remo D’Souza left her speechless on the show.
Geeta Kapur mentioned during the shoot, “I am sure Rishita will grow up and teach the whole world how to dance. I am really honoured to see this level of talent sitting here.” Remo also added, “If this was a finale performance, Rishita would surely have won.”
While Rishita’s performance to Alia Bhatt’s Dholida will leave everyone spellbound this weekend, wait till you see the extravagant dance performance by all the Fantastic-15 during the Grand Premiere episode of the show!
