I like contemporary dance a lot and Anuradha is very skilled at performances like this, where she brings a storyline, whether it’s contemporary or lyrical, which is very nice. Storytelling is something she enjoys and Shiv, you did contemporary so well. You were really very good. I think there was something in the song where the feeling escalated in your performance. You looked fabulous. When you were performing, I saw a very different kind of Shiv, and I liked that.”
