A few days back, Sanjeev Shrivastava, or Dabbu Uncle, as he is fondly addressed, met his idol Govinda on the sets of TV reality show Dance Deewane and lived his dream. On the show, he also shook a leg with Govinda and other judges of the show, Madhuri Dixit, Shashank Khaitan and Tushar Kalia.
After he rose to fame, the professor from Madhya Pradesh was also invited on Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum. Talking about his newfound stardom, Shrivastava told indianexpress.com, “I feel as if God or angel came into my bedroom one night and moved their magic wand over me. And when I woke up the next day, the world became completely new.”
I can see pure happiness on Mr #sanjeevshrivastva s face while he dances… this pure joy is what we actors & performers crave when we let loose in front of the camera, the ability to make others wanna dance just by looking at u is an acquired skill… keep the moves flowing sir. pic.twitter.com/0L3rBGOC2J
