S Sreesanth, who is banned from cricket for spot fixing, has found his new love in music and dance.
Despite six surgeries both in left and right toes, former Indian cricketer has dancided to participate on a TV show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7”. He revealed that the show was like a “therapy” for him in this bad phase.
Despite being passionate about dancing, Sreesanth was worried while signing for “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7” in the beginning.
Banned speedster, as per IANS, claimed: “I was a little confused in the beginning, whether to sign up for the show or not since it’s a reality show and it involves voting. But my family, and especially my wife supported me, and I grabbed the opportunity.”
“The show has helped me overcome the bad phase in my life.”
After his involvement in Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing last year, Sreesanth, who is currently out on bail, is trying his hand at something new.
“If you have some talent in yourself, then show it to the masses. I have six surgeries both in left and right toes. I was on a wheel chair for two months, after my surgery. The toe is not supporting, but that doesn’t stop me. I follow my mantra – no pain should stop you, and I have proved that. Dance is my new passion,” Sreesanth continued.
“Music and dance is in my blood. All my family members have given a lot of preference to art. They all have a career in art. I’m the only one who built a career in cricket.”
When asked which one did he enjoy the most – cricket or dance? Sreesanth replied: “I love both. I loved playing cricket and I love my journey here. I love whatever I do.”
Show will go on air on June 7, the show will see as many as 13 contestants trying with three judges – filmmaker Karan Johar, actress Madhuri Dixit and dance guru Remo D’Souza.
