Deepshikha Nagpal

From leaving the audience awe-struck with her unfading charm and glowing beauty to reigning over the small and big screen with her unparalleled acting abilities, Deepshikha Nagpal has had quite a versatile journey. The actress has always been on the path to explore more, discovering hidden talents and passions within herself. While fine acting may be one of her greatest strengths, it turns out that Deepshikha is not just a talented actor, but an elegant dancer as well. 

The actress who is currently shooting for &TV’s romantic drama Main Bhi Ardhangini in Jaipur paid a visit to an event in the Pink City that has been known for hosting talented women performing the Rajasthani dance, Ghoomar in large numbers. This year, together Deepshikha and these women even set a new world record for 3,003 women performing the Ghoomar! Donning the royal look of her Jaipuri character from the show, Nilambari, the actress not just extended a round of compliments for the glorious dancers but also decided to shake a leg with the talented women herself. Amongst 3,003 graceful women was another, whose flawless attempt at performing the dance with perfect elegance left the audience in awe of the actress. She also took to stage to speak about her experience of shooting in Jaipur for her new show &TV’s Main Bhi Ardhangini along with the release of her upcoming album. 

Recalling the event as one of most awaited festivals she had wished to see, Deepshikha Nagpal said, “I had often heard about this dance and the event through peers and close friends, but I was never able to take out the time to actually witness one. Since I’m shooting in Jaipur for Main Bhi Ardhangini, I got a chance to finally participate in this event myself and tick this moment off my bucket list. This place is known for setting a world record on 3000 women performing the authentic Jaipuri dance and I was quite thrilled to be a part of this occasion and achievement!”

Sharing her experience on being a part of Jaipur’s culture, Deepshikha a.k.a Nilambari said, “I was honestly amazed and proud as well to see how these women gracefully danced with perfect synchronization. Looking at them, I truly feel women are capable of achieving anything and I feel a sense of pride on being a woman. It was such a delight to not just watch these talented women perform Ghoomar, but also dance with them. This is surely a moment I am going to cherish the most.”
