India's Best Dancer 3 will commemorate 'Cinema ke 110 Saal, Bemisaal' in upcoming episodes. The contestants, along with their choreographers, will perform exceptionally well to the tunes of stalwarts such as Raj Kapoor, Kishore Kumar, Shammi Kapoor, RD Burman, Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood's most iconic jodis such as Dharmendra and Hema Malini, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, and others. Farah Khan, the acclaimed director and choreographer, will provide additional entertainment to this spectacular.
Farah Khan, an acknowledged guest on the show, will reflect on the show's Guru-Shishya Parampara as she reunites with her student, Geeta Kapur. Farah Khan discusses the unique premises of this style, in which the mentor dances with the mentee. She said, "The good thing about India's Best Dancer 3 is that they follow a guru-shishya tradition, which I believe has been lost in modern times. We do not appreciate this tradition enough. Michael Jackson was my guru, even though he did not actually train me. A guru is someone you look up to and learn from." Further she also said, "As the show advances, I can see so many shishyas turning into gurus, and soon, I'm sure, I'll see one of them sitting in the judge's chair. This is a terrific opportunity for them to learn, grow and respect what they are doing."
Geeta Kapur will then express her delight at sharing the judges' panel with her guru, Farah Khan. Geeta said, "It's always overwhelming to be sitting next to Farah Khan; every student aspires to at least try and reach their guru's stature. To sit next to her and share the same panel with her is an achievement for me. I look forward to these moments as they remind me of where I come from, it takes me back to where I started my journey. We hardly get the time to spend with each other as we both are busy with our work schedules and hence every opportunity we get to meet each other, I get extremely overwhelmed."
She continued, "We are celebrating 110 years of cinema and I cannot think of a better personality to be here today. I think she represents the evolving times of Indian cinema; she brought a new trend with her, a new way of shooting songs and a new way of showcasing films. She has always been a trendsetter; it's always a great joy to work under her because she has pushed me to try and create something new; and that’s something that has always kept me going.”
India's Best Dancer season 3 is produced by Frames Production and hosted by Jay Bhanushali. Judges include Geeta Kapur, Terence Lewis, and Sonali Bendre. The show premiered on Sony TV on April 8 and airs every Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m.
