Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7 eliminated contestant Tara-Jean Popowich wants to work with Remo D’Souza!

Tara said she learnt Hindi to impress the audience

Canadian dancer Tara Jean Popowich, who is the latest contestant to be eliminated from Indian dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7, feels that Indian dancers are good performers as compared to their western counterparts.

Tara entered the celebrity dance reality show, which is an Indian adaptation of international talent hunt Dancing With the Stars, as a wild card contestant with choreographer partner Jack.

“I loved my one-and-half months stint on the show. It was stressful because we had to rehearse for long hours. But I learnt a lot from the show. I am amazed to see that in India everyone is mad about dance. Even the performance quality in Indian dancers is high,” Tara, the winner of So You Think You Can Dance, told PTI.

The international dancer was pitted against young wonder Akshat Singh in the face-off. Tara’s radio act could not impress judges much as compared to Akshat’s performance as a crocodile.

“I am happy that Akshat stayed back on the show. He is a wonderful dancer. As a wild card contestant it was very hard for me to get the fan following. I had learnt little Hindi too to impress the audience. But I am happy that I gave my everything during my journey on the show and managed to garner standing ovation and full marks many a times,” she said.

Tara also feels lucky to perform in front of the judges– Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar.

“It was unbelievable to perform in front of them. Madhuri was my favourite. Her warm personality gave me confidence to perform on Indian stage. I want to dance in one of the Remo’s films,” she said.

Till she gets her visa, Tara says she in talks to be a part of another reality show and does not mind if she gets a small role in a Hindi Film.
