Was born to play cricket, dancing is challenging, says Bravo

Press Trust of India 

His impromptu dance acts on the field might have fans all across on the world, but cricketer Dwayne Bravo finds it "challenging" to dance on tunes as he prepares to put his best foot forward in the ongoing season of dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhla Jaa".

"Cricket is easy. I was born to play cricket so it comes naturally to me. Dancing is more difficult and challenging but its fun. I am here to give my full energy for 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'. I will give my best and try to win the tournament," Bravo told PTI.



The all-rounder and singer will be making entry in the season 9 of the show as a 'challenger' in December.

For the 33-year-old batsman, breaking into a dance on the field is natural whereas it is different on stage.

"On the cricket field no one is judging me. I don't have to remember the steps or prepare the steps. But for the show I have to practice, prepare and remember the steps. It's a challenge... It is lot of hard work."

"After all the practice and hard work to go on stage and perform and seeing the fans enjoy your performance is a great feeling," he added.

Bravo, who is a fan of Indian music, revealed that he loves music and enjoys shaking a leg or two on songs of superstars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

"I listen to songs. I am a fan of Salman and music of his films. I am a fan of music. It is not easy to do the moves but I enjoy challenges. I danced to 'Lungi dance' of Shah Rukh," he adds.

In the past, cricketers like Ajay Jadeja, Mohinder Amarnath, Sanath Jayasuriya, S Sreesanth and Irfan Pathan have participated in the show but no one has won the title yet.

"I don't think about losing. My aim to enter into a competition is to win. I don't want to embarrass my dance partner or fans I will work as hard as I can and give my best. All my focus and energy is on the show so I have to win," the "Champion" hitmaker said.

"I was surprised with the offer. I am grateful for the opportunity. I am happy to be on the show and compete with best talented contestants. I get opportunity to make new friends as well," he said.

Aired on Colors channel, "Jhalak Dikhla Jaa" is judged by Karan Johar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ganesh Hegde.
