Neil Bhatt is all set to be seen as a classical dancer in an upcoming episode of Yeh Hai Aashiqui.
The story, according to sources, is loosely based on the life of dancer — actress Sudha Chandran whose leg got amputated after she met with an accident. While the role based on her is being essayed by Vrinda Dawda, Neil is playing her lover who stands by her side in her traumatic time.
Since it is about a dancer, the episode will have the lead actors performing classical dances. While Neil is familiar with the western style of dancing — he won many dance championships before he turned actor including Boogie Woogie — classical dance is not his terrain. Says Neil, “I will be playing a classical dancer on the show and this is a real challenge for me as I have never received formal training in that. However, the entire concept of two dancers and their story excited me to take up this role.”
