Reality shows bridge the gap between people: Remo D'Souza

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Ace choreographer and filmmaker Remo DSouza, who has appeared as a judge on various reality shows, feels that such type of shows give a platform to people to showcase their talent to the world and bridges the gaps between them.

"India is diverse in all aspects -- from art to culture, and from lifestyle to habits. It's very difficult to understand the essence of what happens in the South while sitting in North," Remo, who will return as Super Judge on "Dance + Season 3", said in a statement.

"Similarly, it's very difficult to understand what talent is hidden in the villages of our country while we're sitting in the air-conditioned rooms of our houses. That's why reality shows are important. It's a gateway for talented people to come and showcase their talent.

"When the audience sees a folk dance being performed on national TV, they'll get more exposed to it, and will learn to appreciate it more. Some of the older generation dancers and choreographers, although being good, did not get exposure and they couldn't make it. It bridges the gap between people," he added.

Besides Remo, the upcoming Star Plus show will also feature dancers Shakti Mohan, Dharmesh Yelande and Punit J Pathak as captains.
