Akshay recalls Paresh Rawal’s character on the sets of Dare 2 Dance



 Thanks to the daredevilry that Akshay Kumar gets himself into, he’s known for his Khiladi 



image. But then there’s more! The star is also famous for his sense of humour, which he is yet 



again putting to display while he shoots for Life OK’s new show Dare 2 Dance, in South Africa. 



Kumar plays the host, and a mentor to all the contestants on the show, but just while he is strict 



and disciplined, he makes sure there’s a dose of fun as well.



A testament to that is the  fact that the  actor  has  given  nicknames to  a  few  contestants  on the 



show. For instance, he calls Ranchi girl Alisha Singh (Dance India Dance, and Dil Dosti Dance 



fame) Iliyas bhai. It may well be recalled that Iliyas was the name of Paresh Rawal’s character in 



the 2002 film Aankhen. “During the under-water episode, I was extremely nervous since I didn’t 



have  much  time  to  rehearse.  After  my  performance,  the  judges  gave  me  a  red  card,  but  then 



when I went to Akshay sir, he laughed and told me I performed well, and have got a green card 



from both the judges. That’s when he suddenly called me ‘Iliyas bhai’ and since then he calls me 



that,” laughs Singh. Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal have done a number of memorable films 



together, Aankhen being one of them.



So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the actor instantly recalled the name of Rawal’s character 



from  the  film.  But,  the  fun  doesn’t  end  here.  Another  contestant,  television  actress  Sayantani 



Ghosh who was last seen in Mahabharat, also happens to get a nick name from the star. He calls 



her ‘shy-anthony’. Now indeed, the star knows how to calm down the fear and anxiety pangs of 



the contestants through some laughter on the set.



Presented  by  Micromax  and  powered  by  Honda,  Dare 2 Dance is  a  first  of  its  kind  reality 



show,  where  various  challenges  are  thrown  in  at  ten  contestants,  all  of  them  being  good 



dancers.  The  contestants  face  a  new, thrilling  challenge  and  a  new  dance  floor  every  episode, 



thus  promising  some  edge-of-the-seat  action.  The  show  goes  on  air  from  September, 



every Saturday and Sunday, 8.30 pm, only on Life OK.
