After Paul and Urvashi’s foot tapping waltz performance on the popular track Tere Naina from the movie Chandni Chowk to China, Grand Master Mithun Da suddenly proclaimed, “My star…My Jay will give these young dancers a run for their money. He will stand on top of the car that Urvashi and Paul used as a prop and show the world that he can waltz better than them.” The legendary banter between Jay and Mithun Da had been hitherto harmless but the moment poor Jay tried to climb to the top of the car, the characteristic sound of a garment tear trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…
It was a classic eye popping moment akin to a freeze frame in a movie when everything came to a standstill for about 30 seconds followed by a roar of laughter from every corner of the sets leaving Jay crying for help. At this point Urvashi and Master Geeta listened to his prayers and covered him from both sides with their dress and saree respectively. Jay managed to go backstage under the aegis of Geeta Ma’s pallu, change and come.
“Hun participants ko faadu performance dene bolte hain, Jay nein apni pant faad ke faadu performance de di,” quipped Master Terence Lewis.
“What happened was unfortunate but take my word for it… If you notice an exponential rise in the TRPs this Saturday then you will know who is responsible for it. When my pants tore I had nowhere to look, could not stand up nor get down... Thank God, Master Geeta came to my rescue at the nick of time or else the memory of this moment would have haunted me forever, “said an embarrassed but ever smiling Jay.
