Dance with emotions, says Urmila
After replacing Mallika Sherawat as the judge of the reality dance show Chak Dhoom Dhoom, Urmila Matondkar is gradually slipping into the role she has to play. Considering that she’s already judged Jhalak Dikhla Ja in the past, the actress is not the least nervous about shouldering the responsibility one more time.
But looks like this judge won’t be easy to please. Ask her what she looks for in a contestant and she replies, “There are many things I like to see in a good dancer, such as technique, footwork, balance, etc. But the best dance is the one that comes straight from the heart.”
Urmila also clears her stance on the long drawn debate of technique versus emotion. “There can be no dance without emotions, but then dancing can’t be devoid of technique either,” she says. But the key lies in balancing the two, as she says, “For instance, Sachin is pure technique when he bats but he does so in a way that looks magical,” she says.
