He shares “My younger brother Nishit, who aspired to become a dancer but gave up on his dreams to fulfil mine! He stood against my father who wanted me to join business and supported me throughout. who have been a major driving force in my life and believed in my dreams. He has been my biggest support system in all my struggles and has been my biggest motivator throughout my journey to a contestant, choreographer and now a mentor. Nishit is my Plus, and I wish everyone had a brother like him. Although he is the younger one, I am indebted to him for the sacrifices he has made in order to fulfil my dream. The journey to success is a long and a tough one with innumerable odds at every step. I have had my share of battles and it was not easy. But I am glad I had my Plus to support me through my dancing career and helped me.”
