DID star Prince Gupta's physical transformation will blow your mind

via television

Having shot to fame with a dance reality show, Prince Gupta knows only too well that all one needs is a platform to showcase your talent, and doors will open. The Dance India Dance (season 1) find is now on the hunt for talented dancers who can ape his success story. He is launching India's first web dance reality show, Jam Ke Naach, on YouTube. Unlike reality shows on television that consider other factors besides dance skills to judge a contestant, he says his show will focus purely on the art.

"On a reality show, they don't look at your talent alone. Your background story is always important; in the process, talent gets compromised. My show is dance-oriented. How good the dancers look, what sob story they have to tell, or giving minorities an opportunity is not my agenda," says Gupta, who has already completed auditions across 72 cities.

Several people from the fraternity are supporting him in his endeavour. "Terence Lewis, Rajeev Surti and Feroz Khan will be the mahagurus, while Suresh Mukund and I will judge the 10-episode series." Gupta is putting his money where his mouth is. "I'm producing the show with the money I made from events and Bollywood projects. I won't make money off it."

A chat with him would be incomplete without asking him about his physical transformation. A far cry from his lean avatar, Gupta flaunts a muscular look these days. He claims his need to look "mature" was the driving factor behind the makeover. "I had a boyish look and people didn't take me seriously. I needed a change."
