Himanshoo Malhotra, one half of Nach Baliye’s winning couple, speaks to us about the highs of their victory and what it took to get where they got.
How does it feel to win the show?
On top of the world! It feels like Amruta’s and my prayers have been answered and our hard work has paid off.
What was the entire journey like?
It’s been fantastic. We got a standing ovation for our very first performance and it was a surprise for other contestants who didn’t know us well. Out of the 12 performances that we have done, we were the top scorers in seven of them, so that immediately speaks for us. Everyone from Ranbir Kapoor to Varun Dhawan has appreciated our work. The show gave us the opportunity to discover ourselves and each other. I wouldn’t say that we weren’t close before, because that would be a lie. The journey has been magical and the love challenges have brought us closer.
What were the tasks like in Nach Baliye’s Daily Punchnama?
We were absolutely not aware of the tasks when we took up the show. But we were okay with it — love challenges, polygraph test, etc.
What do you plan to do now?
We signed the show right after our wedding. I think it’s time we go on our delayed honeymoon. We’re looking at either Australia or New Zealand as the destination.
