Lalit Mohan : What do you get when you have killer good looks, a lean muscular physique to die for, acrobatic dancing skills and a chance to showcase your talent on India’s best dance reality show, Dance India Dance? The answer is – A Superstar! Sanampreet Johar from Delhi waltzed his way into the hearts of millions of dance enthusiasts, especially girls across the globe with his stellar solo performance on Jo Bhi Main Kehna Chahoon from the movie Rockstar. According to Sanam, his life changed overnight once the performance went on air. The creative director had to give in to the demand of thousands of fans requesting the channel to keep Sanam shirtless throughout the season. This Saturday, viewers will see yet another rocking shirtless performance by Sanam Bruce Lee Johar along with Vaibhav Ghughe on Why This Kolaveri Di.
Sanam says, “I had around 400 friends on facebook till last Saturday. After watching my solo performance on screen I got more than 3000 friend requests within a week from all over India and abroad complimenting me on my performance. When I step out in Mumbai, people pat my back and wish me luck for the rest of the season. I have never been so popular… all this is new to me.” Sanam’s act was uploaded on the official DID website and since then the video has been shared and liked by hoards of DID fans across the globe making it one of the most searched videos on youtube.
His lean mean physique has earned him the tag of ‘Bruce Lee’ – a name given by none other than Grandmaster Mithun da. People on the streets have now started calling him Bruce Lee…On hearing this, Dada remarked, “Sanam is a star in the making…it is for a reason he reminded me of my God, Bruce Lee.”
Anchor Saumya Tandon seems to be smitten by the Sanam bug as well. Says Saumya, “Sanam is such an awesome dancer and has such a cute smile! As a viewer, I think I’m one of his craziest fans! He is undoubtedly one of the most popular contestants this season.”
So all you boys out there don’t get jealous when you hear pretty young girls screaming Bin tere Sanam mar mitenge hum! Good looks and awesome dancing skills are a lethal combination… but is it good enough to win the Sunehri Taqdeer Ki Topi? Only time will tell.
