TikTok star and Internet sensation Yuvraj Singh who is popularly known as Baba Jackson became a star overnight. The star has impressed with his dance moves all thanks to Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Prabhudheva and Michael Jackson who have inspired him over the years to become an ace dancer what he is today. Just a few days back, he had shared a dancing video where he is seen dancing on Bollywood songs but in Hrithik and Prabhudheva’s style which mightily got the War actor’s attention and he shared it on his handle saying that he was impressed with his smoothest airwalk. Amid all the appreciation he has been earning, he revealed that he didn’t own a mirror in the house and hence, he used to see his shadow to practise.
Since Baba Jackson has become pretty famous online, India Today got in touch with the TikTok star and dancer who said that it all seems like a dream. He was quoted by the portal, saying, "Earlier, I used to make TikTok videos but they hardly got views. However, I continued with it. Gradually, I started getting a good response on my videos. I also improved on my dance skills. I did not have a mirror in my house and could not see myself while dancing or practising. So, I used to see my shadow and practice MJ Style dance."
"I've learnt dancing by watching YouTube videos at home. I have been practising MJ Style dance since the past 5-6 months. First, I used to make videos in my room, barefoot. Then, I bought shoes and later started making videos on my terrace. After my videos went viral, I got a call from one of the dance troupes in Delhi - Skeleton. Their director Harpreet liked my dance and called me to Delhi to participate in his dance group," he added.
Yuvraj is also inspired by Tiger who once said in one of his dance videos, "My first inspiration was Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff. Then I followed Michael Jackson and also learnt from Prabhudeva and Hrithik Roshan." This video was also shared by Tiger Shroff on his Insta handle.
