It appears that Jackky Bhagnani may well turn out to be THE newcomer of the current season if the hype surrounding him is any indication. First and foremost he was one of the lucky newcomers to get a platform to showcase his talent in front of the entire industry over the weekend gone by when he performed LIVE at Filmfare awards.
This wasn't all as post the awards ceremony; numerous prominent people from the industry appreciated him for his vigorous moves on the tracks from his upcoming film KAL KISSNE DEKHA. Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh and Arjun Rampal were just some of the actors who were impressed by his dancing skills.
''But honestly, the biggest compliment that I got was from my dad (Vashu Bhagnani). He just said - 'You were fantastic'. Now this was an award in itself. It reinstated the confidence I had built over the months that I could deliver good as required'', says an emotional Jackky as he sets himself for the promotional activities leading to the release of the film.
Talking about his FILMFARE awards performance, Jackky reveals, ''I love dancing but still to be up there on a platform as big as this is a tough thing. I just wanted to go out there with a bang. I was nervous but the moment music started, I said to myself that it was my day and I had to get it done just right. I had only two days for rehearsal and my performance included dancing on the signature step of the title song 'Kal Kissne Dekha'.''
Apparently, for the same track in the film, Jackky had originally shot eight months back. ''Yeah, it was little tough to get the same effect again but working with Shiamak (Davar) made it easy. I have danced with him earlier so it didn't take much time to get into the groove.''
