Malaika Arora has now earned the label of a dancing diva, but there was a time when she had to struggle like any other newcomer and face rejections.
"I remember going for many auditions and my mother used to accompany me. When I started off, I faced many rejections but that never let me down. I never gave up and kept trying. I was 17 years old when I started with my modelling career and from then one thing led to another and today, I am in the position to judge a show," she said.
"It was not easy. I didn't know what I wanted to do when I was 15-16 years old and today kids who come for auditions are so clear with what they want to do. Also, I was in my teens when I met Terence (Lewis) about 20 years ago and I was learning dance in his academy and today I am judging a show with him," she added.
Malaika and Terence along with choreographer Geeta Kapur will be seen as judges of the dance reality show, "India's Best Dancer". The show will give a platform to talent who are aged between 15 and 30, and passionate about dance.
