Hip Hip Hurray, Small Wonder, I dream of Jeanie, Gummy bear, Duck Tales, Captain Planet, Tom and Jerry, Chip and Dale, Laaf-A-Lympics, Talespin, Scooby doo, Alladin, Hum Paanch and a lot of other shows defined my childhood. These names bring back a lot of good memories associated with them. The best one I can remember now is watching them with my sibling especially the cartoons on a Sunday morning. I call them the gold old golden days.
Kingdom of Dreams is one of its kind Entertainment come Cultural come Food destination and more. I have been talking a lot about their state-of-the-art theatre and show Zangoora here. Since this place is no less than a landmark of India, National Geographic India did featured it in the show ‘Inside’ which basically shows how was this place made, the thought behind it and the machine controls along with how the cast and crew handle the daily pressures, overcome them and emerge as winners.
In my last post on Auditions of Just Dance, I spoke about the auditions in general. In this post, I shall talk more about the people who impressed me during the auditions. There were some contestants who appealed to me right from the first dance. Here is the list :-
1. Meher Malik, Delhi -I have always loved Belly Dancing so she scored a point there with her moves. There was also something very positive about her which fascinated me.
2. Namita Kapoor, USA- She was the tap-tap girl. Loved her attitude and the enthusiasm with which she performed.
3. Karan Pangali, U.K- His kathak amazed me. I have never seen a guy do kathak so gracefully without looking out-of-place. And yes his personality was great.
Hrithik Roshan can dazzle you with his perfect moves and his to die for body. He is one of the finest dancers of our country who can perform anything and look good. In his words, he says, it takes a lot of hard work and effort for him to bring perfection in his moves. People idolize him as the Dance Icon and it’s the ultimate dream for them to dance with him.
When Star Plus came with it’s new show “Just Dance” where the Grand Prize would also include matching moves with the magnificient dancer Hrithik Roshan, people were moved beyond words. The junta went crazy to participate in the auditions. This was also first of it’s kind in India where dancers from around the world would come on a single platform and fight for the top spot.
Bachaoo.. Bachaoo.. Koi toh suno, screamed the girl with a tinge of fear in her eyes. A handsome man appears out of nowhere and the girl, that’s me cannot help but stare. My eyes are motionless and the body froze at the sight of this strong, handsome and gullible figure standing in front.
“Kaun hai?”, I ask in complete shock and bittersweet happiness, at the same time. Just trying to keep my feet down and not go to the heaven right above the stars I could see. I finally hear him speak for the first time trying to stand still and hiding my happiness.
” I am a proud citizen of ZangooraLand” and my name is Zangoora, he says in a flirtatious tone.
I was flattered and we hit a conversation instantly. There was a different level of chemistry with this man. He was naughty and witty, always trying to be cheesy. His tone made me swoon but I had to tone down my feelings.
He finally spoke “Jaaneman chalegi tu mere saath” which left me bewildered. Though I was petrified at the thought but he looked true to me. His sense of humour, his positivity and enthusiasm left a huge impression on me.
I decided to take the plunge and answered trying to be all pricey- “Jaaneman aur tumhari, kabhi nahin. Meri jooti bhi na bane tum jaise ki jaaneman”.
Finally it’s time to reveal the Teaser Poster of “Zangoora” that still races my heartbeat and takes me to the world of dreams and absolute brilliance. Check out the old posts to know What is Zangoora, Where to watch it and The Cast & Crew.
Wondering where is the poster, Oh it’s right here. The Incredible Bollywood Experience !!
Zangoora- The larger than life dream, the magnificent view in front of your eyes, the grand Nautanki Mahal; everything exists. Now the only thing that can make this dream like place a super possibility is the Cast and Crew behind it. Although one would think that such a grand place can work with absolutely anything and everything, it is definitely not true. The mere reason is the critics and the reviews. If something is not good inside, however it may dazzle; it would not dazzle the soul, the hearts of people. It would never let people connect with Zangoora.
The mastermind behind Zangoora is a genius of its kind. Let me put down the Cast and Crew of Zangoora. I am so sure it would dazzle anyone’s heart. It would make anyone jump on their seats and go watch the show.
