'I wish to be a 'super-hero' and 'choreographer' in real life': Bishal

The 12-year-old ultimate winner of the fiercely-contested Sony TV ‘Super Dancer Chapter 2’, agile Bishal Sharma (hails from Jorhat in Assam), seemed emotionally overjoyed with his latest coveted victory. In an exclusive conversation with Afternoon D & C, the exuberant Bishal reveals his ecstasy, fond memories, secret wishes and off-screen aspirations

What was the initial feeling when you were announced victor at the Super Dancer Chapter 2’s Dance Ka Kal?
The time they announced my name, I literally couldn’t believe what had happened. I had tears of joy and hugged my Guru Vaibhav Ghuge and my parents. Everyone just ran towards me to take selfies and celebrate my success. I never imagined wining the trophy.

Share with us your secret dream-wishes?
Actually, I had come with three secret wishes – a) to participate in Super Dancer Chapter 2; b) to get my cow back. My father sold our beloved cow so that I could participate on the show; and c) To win the trophy which India helped me achieve. I am grateful to Almighty God, to the eminent judges and mainly the Indian home-audiences.

If not you, who do you think would have possibly won the show?
Honestly, I was confident that my fellow contestant and best friend Akash Thapa would win the show. His performance was consistently getting better and stronger and soon, he was the best. It was definitely a healthy competition. No doubt we are good friends on and off the screen. His performances were always a level higher than his previous performances and I thought that he would take away the trophy which would’ve also made me happy as a friend.

Last season, you were sent home for revision and this season you won the show; how do you feel about this?
Initially, I was shocked and couldn’t believe that I was sent home for ‘revision’. But that was what motivated me to learn and practice hard. We had to sell our cow so that I could participate in the second season and the only aim was to win the show and get all my cows back. Sony TV was generous enough to gift me the cows, especially the one I had to give away to keep my family financially stable.

When you won the show, whom did you call to break this news?
I called up my friends first. They were very excited to hear that I won the show. Almost everyone in Assam and especially in the city of Jorhat, celebrated my victory by bursting fire crackers and dancing merrily. People from my village also called to congratulate me. Today, thanks to Sony TV, I am a celebrity-dancer-winner.

Other than dancing, what are your other aspirations?
(Laughs) Hmm, I would like to become a ‘super hero’ in real life. A super hero in academics as well, and someone who helps other people in their crisis, or who fulfills their basic necessity. In my real-life, Vaibhav Sir, my parents and my sisters are my inspirations.

What will you do with the ‘prize money’?
I would like to build a spacious house-bungalow for my family where my parents have a separate room, my sisters have their own separate rooms with security vigilance outside. I would also try to help people who urgently need money.

What are your future plans after this?
My only aim is to become a big choreographer in future. I would also like to work under Dharmesh Sir, who followed my dance and became my fan which made me immensely happy. I would also love to get trained under Geeta-Maa, who has been very supportive and always gave me the right suggestions to improve my dance.
