Kicking off this episode, Jacqueline Fernandez sets the dance floor on fire with a special performance on ‘Hungama Ho Gaya’. The episode also marks the coming together of television’s leading ladies Erica Fernandes a.k.a Prerna of Kasauti Zindagi Ki and Monalisa a.k.a Dayan of Nazar for the first time ever for a dance off on the retro hit song ‘Yeh Mera Dil’. Upping the entertainment quotient of the finale of Home Dancer, Rithvik Dhanjani, known for his spontaneity, wit and his undying love for dance, can be seen giving company to host and friend Karan Wahi along with judges and choreographers Chandni Srivastava and Sushant Pujari in a fun engaging banter as they talk about and showcase performances of the 10 shortlisted Home Dancers who have stolen their hearts and made it to the Grand Finale.
Speaking about the culmination of Home Dancer, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez shared, “It’s been a wonderful journey and feels like the grand finale of Home Dancer is just the beginning of something amazing that Disney+ Hotstar has introduced. Connecting with the audience through my work, be it movies or song releases, has always brought a smile to my face and I’m glad that even during the lockdown I was able to continue to do that in a different yet engaging way through Home Dancer.”
TV actor and host of Home Dancer, Karan Wahi said, “After hosting Home Dancer for weeks, I was excited to shake a leg for the grand finale and to see some of our industry friends join us. It’s been a great experience and I’m definitely going to miss the sheer joy of being part of the show.”
Speaking about performing for the grand finale of Home Dancer, TV actor Rithvik Dhanjani said, “When I first heard about the show “home dancer” I was really interested to see how India would dance within the confined spaces and plus I myself love the idea of shooting and editing anything and creating anything by myself, so when I was offered the opportunity to be a part of the grand finale I had all the reason to be excited. Shooting and creating my own dance sequence and Karan being the host of the show is always some extra fun added so well that’s what brought me to the home dancer finale.”
Erica Fernandes added, “Dance has proven to be quite effective in keeping me calm and composed while I have been self-quarantining. I’m glad to be associated with an initiative like Home Dancer. Shooting the dance-off performance with Mona Lisa was amazing and I hope the audience enjoys it as much as we did while shooting for it from our homes.”
Also, sharing her experience, actor Monalisa said, “I’m very fond of dancing; in fact I have been a home dancer myself these days. The concept of the show is what I related to the most given that I have been dancing from the comfort of my home and sharing my dance videos on social media. Dancing brings joy for me and I had a great time dancing again but this time for the grand finale of Home Dancer. It’s the first time Erica and I will be seen together for a dance performance and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”
Launched by Bollywood star, Jacqueline Fernandez and hosted by popular television actor, Karan Wahi, the 10 shortlisted contestants of every week battled it out yet again to be the finalists of Home Dancer for the finale episode.
