In the last episode of Nach Baliye 9, we saw Urvashi Dholakia and her ex-boyfriend Anuj Sachdeva bid adieu to their journey on the dance reality show. With each elimination, the competition is getting tougher and the contestants are trying their level best to get maximum love from the judges as well as the audience. And one such hardworking couple is Shantanu Maheshwari and his girlfriend Nityaami Shirke. They have set the Nach Baliye 9 stage on fire with their oh-so-perfect dance moves and have left the audience asking for more. Despite suffering from a knee injury, Nityaami put up a brave front and matched steps with her Baliye (Shantanu).
With their last act, Shantanu and Nityaami took everyone back to their childhood days as the theme of their performance was of Disney's Aladdin. Shantanu was dressed as Aladdin while Nityaami was decked up as the Genie instead of princess Jasmine. Speaking about playing Genie and dancing on her choreographer's shoulders throughout the act, Nityaami exclusively told BollywoodLife, "I personally love anything and everything to do with Disney, so putting up the Aladdin Genie act was definitely me living my Disney dream on stage. And the fact that we portrayed this Disney classic in a very different way was quite cool for us all."
She further shared, "I am also glad that my character was not Jasmine and Genie instead, which I was honestly way more excited about. And dancing the whole time on our choreographer Subhash's shoulders through the entire act was a big support for me. More than me it was tougher for him, and I was feeling quite bad that he had to lift me up so many times but he managed to get through it and was a real sport and helped me a lot. And overall, our entire team is very happy with the way the act turned out."
On the other hand, Shantanu added, "As a child, I have watched Aladdin quite a lot of times, so actually getting to portray the character through our act this time was quite fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Speaking about our performance, the beauty of our entire act was that it gave a very theatrical feel overall, in a musical way of saying things which put in the fun element into it."
Crediting their choreographers, who helped them put up this brilliant act in Nach Baliye 9, he concluded the chat saying, "And the credit for the whole thought of putting it together with the surprise element of Nityaami as Genie as well as incorporating her dance bit into it keeping in mind her injury, and at the same time making the act look visually appealing, loud, vibrant and glamorous all goes to our choreographers Macedon and Subhash who this time as well came up with an amazing storyline for our act."
