IDS winner MJ5’s Shraey Khanna: No more reality shows for us!

IDS winner MJ5’s Shraey Khanna: No more reality shows for us!

Shraey, member of Team MJ5, which won India’s Dancing Superstar (IDS) and the prize money of Rs 50 lakh, says they went numb after hearing the results, but have no plans to do any more reality shows

“We were actually trying to make out what is happening. After the results were out, we were numb. We didn’t expect to win. We had made the group 15 days before the auditions…” said Shraey Khanna.

He further added: “We wanted to win but we were not at all expecting the victory.” The finale was on Saturday (August 3) and it was beamed on Star Plus. They thought love and popularity that they earned on the show was enough, but now they are enjoying the glory. “We will rest and enjoy for two weeks.”

Though they want to be seen on screen, but no more reality shows for them. “We have already done and won a reality show. We want to come on screen and give performances, but not on a reality show,” he said.

The five-member team carved a niche with their moonwalk, but say aping the Michael Jackson’s signature step and presenting it differently each time was a knotty affair. “The biggest challenge was the moonwalk. Every time we had to present a better moonwalk. We have tried moonwalk in every possible manner. We always tried to create better movements during the competition,” he said.

Hailing from Delhi, Shraey and his team member R Karthik teach dance in the capital. The rest of the members – Rohit Singh, Himanshu Gola and Vishnu Sharma – were their students. “Kartik and I teach in Delhi. We have learned contemporary forms and we teach there. The rest are our students. Kartik and I have worked with Honey Singh in a video and in the movie ABCD. We had given auditions, but nothing worked out. Finally, we decided to give this a shot,” he said.

How will you use the prize money? “We have not yet thought of anything. We may go to the record book and register ourselves for attempting maximum number of moonwalks in a competition. We plan to open a headquarter in Delhi where we will practice and get more creative stuff for our audience,” he said.
