After winning Zee TV's Dance India Dance Li'l Masters 2 and the eighth season of celebrity dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Faisal Khan is aiming to score a ‘hat-trick’ with his latest stint on the couple dance reality show Nach Baliye 9. For the show, Faisal has teamed up with his girlfriend Muskaan Kataria, who he met during a fashion event. "I would love to achieve a hat-trick by winning Nach Baliye and continue with the respect I have earned for dance. Muskaan and I will give it our best," said Faisal in an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife. In the last episode of Nach Baliye 9, the two earned huge applause for their performance.
Faisal opened up about his relationship with Muskaan just a few months before the dance reality show went on air. Strong rumours suggested that Faisal was faking a relationship with Muskaan, in order to participate in the show. Nonchalantly Faisal denied the buzz and said, "They are all rumours! We would rather not do the show if we were not a real couple. Both of us belong to good families and would like to maintain that stance. It is a dance show and I cannot be fake it here!"
Currently, Faisal is seen playing the titular role in historical drama Chandragupta Maurya, whose set is based in Umbergaon. The actor has been travelling from Mumbai to Umbergaon as he simultaneously shoots for Chandragupta Maurya and Nach Baliye. "Juggling between Chandragupta Maurya and Nach Baliye has been quite difficult," he sighs. Apparently, Muskaan and team are stationed on the sets of Chandragupta Maurya, to rehearse for Nach Baliye. "So Muskaan and the whole team have been coming here to rehearse. Whenever I get some free time from the shoot, I rush for my rehearsals. After shooting for 12-13 hours, I practice my dance steps with the team. The only time I travel to Mumbai is for the shoot of Nach Baliye and then I head back to Umbergaon," he shared. There have been strong rumours that the historical drama will soon go off air, however, the actor expressed surprise about it and stated, "These are all rumours we have not been informed about."
Faisal and Muskaan are currently in their 20s and their parents had no apprehensions with the couple going public about their relationship. However, Faisal’s parents haven’t yet visited the sets of Nach Baliye to witness the chemistry between the lovebirds. "Since our parents are very supportive of us making our relationship public at such a young age, we participated in Nach Baliye with their approval. My parents have always come with me during shoots earlier, but honestly, they haven’t visited the sets of Nach Baliye yet," he concluded.
