You have 60 seconds and only 10mb to show you can hold your own with the Shah Rukh!
Farah Kahn said, “I am sure there would be quite a lot of fun in the offering once a common man on the street starts dancing to the beats of ‘Dard-e-Disco’. We want every ‘bhelpoori wallah’ and ‘rickshaw wallah’ to get grooving to the beat.”
If internet access is a problem or not your thing the Youth Icon Paras Tomar tour might also be coming to your town and you could be filmed by them for the challenge. You can also send your CD to an address that is listed on the website.
Then guess who will watch you dance? Only Farah Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, who are the judges for the contest. Through four phases, they will watch the videos and will make a short list. Those lucky enough to be on that list will have their videos on the ibnlive website and then the public can vote for their favorite one. Five videos will also be aired on CNN-IBN each week and then the votes will be cast by viewers through SMS.
The five with the most votes will then be in the Grand Finale and be flown to Mumbai. These five will get the amazing opportunity to train with Farah Kahn and her dancers.
“It has to be as whacky as possible. I am expecting people out there to really go mad. Madder the dance steps, more is going to be the fun,” Farah said.
