Though show is judged by Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Anurag Basu and Geeta Kapur but this time for a change Anurag Basu won’t be there among the judges.

One of the contestants Neerja with guru Bhawna will be presenting an act on the famous track, ‘Yeh Raat’ from the movie ‘Aks’ featuring Raveena. Looking at their choreography Raveena was impressed and complimented their dance moves.

She said: “I really liked the concept that you guys chose. Neerja performed this act so cutely and the overall dance was very powerful; every step had a lot of energy. This is not a very fast paced song, so it is very important to hold your step on every beat and Neerja did it beautifully at such a young age.”

Raveena further revealed her experience of shooting for the song. “When I was shooting for this song, Raju Sundram was the choreographer. Till that time, I had done a lot of fast paced songs but when I reached home after completing shooting for this song literally, I had bruises on my knees and arms because this song required a lot of energy.”

I am very happy that the director was meticulous. He is young but very well-prepared. He knew exactly what he wanted and did not overshoot or take extra shots.”

Karan is seen opposite actress Shraddha Arya in the video. Talking about his chemistry with his co-actor, he shared, “Shraddha and I met on the sets and we got along really well. It was a lot of fun. It was two and a half days’ shoot in that beautiful location of Mandawa. It is a very colourful song with a pretty straightforward storyline. Shraddha has done a fabulous job. The experience was fantastic overall.”

Composed by Vipul Kapoor and penned by The Ruff, the song is a sad romantic number. Afsana Khan is known for doling out some of the most heart-wrenching songs.
