Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya won Nach Baliye 8 and since then the actress added another feather in her cap. Now, even in her fiction shows, Divyanka is been given opportunities to shake a leg- this time with dance maestro- Sudha Chandran.

Well yes, Star Plus’ popular show, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein showed an interesting sequence last night where we witnessed a dance face- off between Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya) and Sudha (Sudha Chandran) on Madhuri Dixit's popular dance number, Aaja Nachle.

Here’s what the sequence was all about: Sudha organised a Diwali party and invited the Bhalla family with an intention of insulting them. Although Ishita gives her back but eventually, Sudha challenges Ishita for a dance face-off, to which she agrees to save her family's dignity. And then Sudha and Ishita groove to the beats of Madhuri’s dance number. Now, this scene has turned out to be fans’ favourite right now. Since morning, various fan pages are sharing the video of their dance off

We got in touch with Divyanka Tripathi to know about her experience of matching steps with the dance diva and she said, "Before the performance, I was feeling the jitters, my heart was pounding- I was really really scared for the first time.  I didn't want to go wrong yet there was every chance of going wrong as we both reached the set and then we learnt the dance steps. So, with such less time it was challenging also. I told her, ‘Oh My God! I am performing next to you. It's not going to be easy for me.’ Thankfully everything went well,"

She also added, "It was actually an achievement for me, and my family too. I recall Sudha Chandran ji's film, Naache Mayuri had released when I was quite young. I and my sister were huge fans of it and used to dance on the songs from the film. We actually used to learn Bharatanatyam but preliminary stages. In fact, my sister (Priyanka) danced on Sudha ji’s song and even won the first prize. I especially sent my family the video of us dancing together and when they saw it they were so happy. Because it was not only that I was performing with somebody who is an ace performer herself but also because I have grown up watching the dream girl of Indian Classical dance. She is an inspiration to everyone. It was beautiful performing with her.”

Well, it was indeed a treat watching the two actresses dancing together so gracefully. In the current track of Yeh Hain Mohabbatein, Sudha Chandran has been introduced to bring a major twist in the lives of Ishita and Raman.
