Aayush all set for Da-Bangg show
Salman Khan leads a bevy of Bollywood stars for an evening of dance and music this Friday
Aayush Sharma, who is in Dubai to perform at Da-Bangg The Tour Reloaded, alongside his brother-in-law Salman Khan, says the superstar is one of the main attractions at the show that's taking place tomorrow at the Coca-Cola Arena.
"There is a huge crowd who turn up for the show purely to watch Salman Khan," said the actor.
The last stop for the Da-Bangg The Tour before it flew into Dubai was Hyderabad on November 2. According to reports, the show was a roaring success as thousands of fans turned up to watch Salman's swag on stage and the star didn't disappoint as he enthralled the crowd with his heart-winning performance. But for Aayush, it was a dream performing alongside Salman and Prabhudeva.
"I have not performed with Salmanbhai or Prabhudeva before. This my first show in Hyderabad, alongside them. It was a great experience for me as I have always dreamt of sharing the stage with them - with legends from the industry. I was pretty nervous in the beginning, but once I went on stage, I had a great time with them."
Besides Salman and Prabhudeva, the show features an ensemble cast consisting of Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, and others. However, fans are in for a special treat when the UAE's own Money Kicks, aka Rashed Belhasa, takes to the stage as the opening act. The teenage sensation recently released his first single We Living Life, a song that pays homage to life in Dubai.
For Aayush, being a member of such a huge ensemble, gave him an opportunity to learn as well as reach out to a large audience.
"The Da-Bangg show offers a huge platform and that according to me is the best part of being part of the team. The artistes that you see on stage are well experienced when it comes to stage performances. We get to learn so much when we perform alongside them. But I must say there is a huge crowd who turn up purely to watch Salman Khan. Nevertheless, we too get an opportunity to showcase our talent in front of so many people."
It takes a lot to be part of the show, the act has to be perfect which means a lot of preparation and practice, informs Aayush. So how does he prepare for the event?
"The first thing I attempt is to perfect my moves during the rehearsals. We spend a lot of time getting our individual parts right and ensuring that it is high on energy as well as entertaining. We practice at least 4-5 hours every day ahead of the show. Then on the day of the show, we sort out the technicalities. We go on stage and rehearse our act ahead of the show."
Aayush will be next seen in Kwatha, which also features Katrina Kaif's sister Isabelle. "I am excited to shoot for Kwatha," he tells us about the movie in which he plays an army officer.
Giving us a glimpse of what the audience in Dubai can expect at the Da-Bangg The Tour Reloaded show, Aayush said. "Fans should expect a high-octane show with a lot of energy. It's one of the best Bollywood shows I've travelled with. The show has a wonderful ensemble of artistes and I'm sure the audience in Dubai will have a great time as well."
