Recently, Bollywood’s sensational dancer Helen had appeared on Zee TV’s dance reality show Dance India Dance Lil Masters. At this show, Helen happened to express her thoughts on solo dances and also talks about item dances. Helen said, “During our time, we used to make a lot of mythological stories and we used to incorporate dance sequences in between a few scenes and because of that they were termed as ‘Solo Dances.’ ”
“As we moved towards modern forms of dance with nightclub backdrops, the term changed. I feel calling any song or actress an item number or item girl is very unaesthetic. It doesn’t sound good, nobody is an item here, and everyone is a working professional. I really feel we should not use the word ‘Item’ to refer to an actress or to any song,” she added.
Talking about the show, Sonali Bendre is judging a reality show Dance India Dance Lil Masters along with Remo D’Souza and Mouni Roy. Earlier, Sonali Bendre had also talked about her her comeback on TV. Sonali Bendre said, “It’s great to be back with Zee TV and with the bachas on set once again. As you all know, dancing is something I have always been a fan of, and I am excited to see these lil dancers showcase their talent! Watching them come up on stage, to give it their all, is just something so pure and heart-warming to watch.”
The actor added: “While this may be my first time on the show, I have followed the show for years now, and I truly believe that this platform has the potential to mould each child and help them break out of their shell, giving them the confidence to face the world. Dance is such a joyous form of art and I am definitely looking forward to watching these children blossom on the show.”
