One step at a time

Shake a leg Mini Mathur

Most people in the entertainment business have to break stereotypes to make it big. While many highlight these hardships, a few take them in their stride. One example is Mini Mathur, who moved from one metro to another. She worked her way to fame, cl imbing one step at a time.

As she entered Mumbai from Delhi, it was a different experience, she hardly knew anyone. It was with MTV that she attained popularity and friends. Then there was Indian Idol and from anchor to contestant in the celebrity dance show Jhalak Dikhla Ja, Mini has come a long way.

Ask her about her experience in Jhalak..., and she says, “It is fun. However, I am not taking it too seriously. You can call me a guest participant on the show.” She laughs, adding, “I was not a big dancer before the show. I didn’t even dance in the discos, let alone perform.”

In Jhalak…, she is amidst many friends. With whom does she enjoy the best rapport on the show? “Cyrus, mostly because of our MTV days. Since this is my first time on the dance floor, beginners’ luck might work for me,” she says with a laugh.
