Bir, who is from Silchar, Assam added that he feels lucky to have got such a big platform to showcase his skills. “Coming from a small town where dance as a career is not heard of, I feel fortunate to have been part of such a grand show.” Rather than moving ahead and turning into a choreographer, the 18-year-old has his plans set. “I want to learn as much as I can.
