MUMBAI: Actor Chunky Pandey has shared that to become an actor he swam against the tides of societal norms of securing a conventional job. The actor revealed on ‘India’s Got Talent’ season 10 that both his parents were doctors and they wanted him to pursue medical science.

This weekend, the contestants up the ante of entertainment in the Reunion Special with 1990's superstars Chunky Pandey, Deepak Tijori, Ayesha Jhulka and Rahul Roy, whilst impressing the judges – Badshah and Kirron Kher with their performances.

Chandigarh’s dance group, N-House Crew impresses the judges with their performance to the peppy dance number, 'Zingaat'. Judge Badshah lauds the group, saying, “This is one of the most creative acrobatic performances I have ever seen. Everyone tries acrobats and somersaults, but I haven't seen anyone performing like the N-house Crew have done today. N House crew, this is your best performance.”

Adding to the compliment, actor Chunky Pandey shares: “This was an out of the world performance. The whole act was something else altogether. I heard you guys were doing different jobs, but thank God you left all those behind, otherwise we wouldn’t have got a chance to witness such a talented group. Pursue your ambition, I have also done many things before getting into the film industry.”

He added: “I have done multiple jobs but when I got my calling, and a chance to be in a film, I jumped on it. My parents wanted me to be a doctor; both my parents were doctors, but I went against all odds and became an actor. I just feel that you are not only India’s, but you will become this world’s best dancers.”

The actor also expresses his wish to dance with the group on the song 'Zingaat' during the course of the episode.

‘India’s Got Talent’ airs Saturday and Sunday on Sony Entertainment Television.
