After the historic win at Tokyo Olympics, Mirabai Chanu graced the sets of Dance Deewane 3 on the Independence Day special episode. Contestants Papai Antara and Tarun dedicated a performance showcasing her journey and achievements. Seeing the special act on her hardships and struggles, the Olympic medalist got emotional.
Her presence also boosted the morale of contestants who see her as an inspiration. During our recent conversation, choreographer Nishchal Sharma told that he had a fanboy moment when he met Mirabai Chanu on the sets of Dance Deewane 3. He said, “I had never been so awestruck while meeting someone. It was a feeling of utmost pride. It was a great moment for the contestants as well. She is an inspiration to the entire country. Everybody welcomed her with wide smiles on their faces. Her vibe and aura is so strong that your heart would fill with pride when you see her.”
“One thing that I have learned from her and others should also learn is her attitude of not giving up. I have read about her struggles. When she couldn’t lift the weights in the previous Olympics, she worked on herself and won silver this year. I have understood that no matter how many times we fail, we shouldn’t give up and keep trying. Eventually, we will achieve our goals one day,” he further told.
Recalling the moment when he interacted with Mirabai, Nischal said, “I congratulated her for her victory at Tokyo Olympics 2021 and she replied very humbly. It was a very short meet because everybody wanted to congratulate her and click a picture with her.”
