British model-dancer Scarlett Wilson, who entertained the audience on TV show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded, says she is a fan of Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s dancing skills and looks up to her.
Scarlett is the ninth contestant to get eliminated from the celebrity dance show.
The 26-year-old model, who also performed on Aishwarya’s famous song Dola Re from Devdas in one of the episodes of Jhalak..., said she referred to the actress’ grace and facial expressions for her act.
“Aishwarya is my favourite in Bollywood and she will always be my idol. Any kind of song I do, I take reference from her. When Shamita (Shetty) and I performed on ‘Dola Re’, I thought about her facial expressions, how graceful she was in the song and how she moved... I am inspired by her,” Scarlett told a <g data-gr-id="26">media</g> person.
Calling her stint on the reality show the best experience of her life, Scarlett, who has appeared in item songs in films like Baahubali and R.. Rajkumar, is happy that she got a chance to perform in front of Shahid Kapoor and top filmmaker Karan Johar, who is no more a part of the show.
“Jhalak has been the best experience of my life because of the huge platform that it is and the different dance styles I got to perform, which I wouldn’t have got to do otherwise.
“One of the reasons I wanted to do ‘Jhalak’ was because of its esteemed jury. I wanted Karan Johar to know that I exist. I feel blessed to have performed in front of him and other judges. It was an honour,” she said.
