Super Dancer – Chapter 4 is living up to the audiences’ expectations by showcasing phenomenal talent on its prestigious platform. This weekend, veteran actors Sachin Pilgaonkar and Supriya Pilgaonkar, will grace the Super Dancer – Chapter 4 stage.
With an unexpected yet surprisingly awesome fusion of Lavani and Bharatnatyam, Pariti and Shweta stole the show with their performance. Contestant Pratiti Das and her choreographer Shweta Warrier brought out something entirely unique as they blended two different dance forms on the song “Pinga” from “Bajirao Mastani” and were lauded by the ones who were and were not present there and watching them through the broadcast. Sure enough, they even claimed the “Seedi” ovation as the ultimate mark of appreciation on the show. As Malaika Arora put it, “The combination was a winner”
Geeta pointed out and acknowledged the unbroken streak of the contestants showcasing Street O’Classicals, and said “It is important for the new generation to learn about the beauty that lies in Indian cultural and folk forms”
Sachin particularly pointed out the nuances with which the two girls managed both dance forms. “In one form, you don’t have movement of the waist, and the other form cannot be complete without movement of the waist. So, to bring these two forms together, is very difficult, but you did it very well,” said Sachin. Further he explained about how the term “Lavani” originates from the word “Lavanya”, which means beauty. Relating to the meaning of the name of the Dance form, ie. Lavani, Sachin complimented the Super Dancer contestant duo for doing complete justice to it with their act.
The elegant and evergreen couple – Sachin & Supriya Pilgaonkar was sporting enough to do an impromptu jig on the behest of Super Dancer judge Geeta Kapur. Sachin after which shared how and why Lavani has remained special to Supriya and him as it was this Maharashtrian folk dance form because of which they met in the 1984 film “Navri Mile Navryala”.
Pariti was overjoyed by the judges’ comments and shared a piece of her own, her experience of learning a new dance form. She said, “I find it extremely challenging to fuse Lavni with Bharatanatyam, but Shweta Didi helped me a lot in learning and I am sure under her guidance I will learn a lot more things”
