Having faced a number of challenges while growing up, choosing dance was quite a risky decision. However, her mother was always a pillar of support. Saumya also shared that she learn locking and popping during the lockdown at home and mixed it with belly dancing and freestyle dance forms. “I introduced my new dance form, which also helped me stand out in the show. And now that I know people enjoyed watching my performances, I want to represent my style internationally. I want to make my country proud and also show the world how your passion can take you places.”

She said that everyday was a learning experience for her on India’s Best Dancer 2.

Talking about her mentor, Saumya said, “Vartika didi was such an added boon for me in the competition. While people may feel we have a similar style, it’s completely different and we both would train each other. Vartika didi really helped me push myself and that played an important part in my win.”
