He also had some words of praise Pratik Utekar for the controlled choreography. “But it also needs a dancer, who can control the body and execute it with great finesse,” he added.

Arundhati told Javeed-Naved that she has been a huge fan of their show.

Her mother Sonali Singh, who was present at the show, said, “Boogie Woogie was her mealtime distraction because it was the only way to get her to sit down and eat. Perhaps, I made her eat dance while doing so,” she added.
