Amir collapses on sets

In Sunday’s episode of Zara Nachke Dikha, the captain of the boys’ team — Amir Ali steps forward for the first round of the night. He performs the dance of the scavenger for which he is so in to the character that he refuses to speak to anyone before his performance. By mixing a bit of krumping and stomping, Amir performs with such seriousness that he is totally lost in the act. He paints himself blue to become a scavenger. During the act he breaks bottles on his head much to the awe of the audience and the judges. The performance is so intense that in the end, when he jumps on the judges’ table, he gives a terrible scare to Shilpa.

Once his performance is over, he is so exhausted that he collapses right in front of the judges, which makes both his anxious girlfriend Sanjeeda and teammates run to his side.
As Sanjeeda gives him water, his Mastkalander teammates help him stand up and bring him to the centre of the stage.

Looks like this competition is just getting bigger and better. Tune into Zara Nachke Dikha every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm on Star Plus.
