Dance India Dance Lil Masters (DID) fame Diya Dua from Zee TV; India Got Talent (IGT) show’s queen Gaurika Joshi from ‘Colors’; Manisha Puri from channel ‘Life OK’; and, Reet from Sony channel participated and inspired LPU Competitors.
Congratulating the winners and all other competing students, LPU Pro Chancellor Mrs Rashmi Mittal said: “In order to make our talented students follow the global talent competition format, we organized the dancing show where artists from prestigious channels shared their experiences. This visit of the star artists has not only added luster to the competition but also emphasized that talent knows no age or areas. Our mechanical engineering students who are not related to any of the art programs have proved it to the core that talent knows no boundaries or constraints.” Mrs Mittal also added: “TV artists’ presence on the grand finale of the dancing competition increased the magnitude of the competition as well as of the students’ performances.”
Being very happy on winning the trophy Akash who hails from Kolkata said: “It was a tough competition and more so as I never got any training for any of the dance forms. Dance is my passion and I did prove it. This winning has added more to my confidence and I think I made right choice in joining LPU from such a long distance. I and other students like me get ample opportunities here at LPU to grow and groom ourselves.”
