Radio jockey-turned-actor Pritam Singh and his wife Amanjjot have proved to be the dark horse in the celebrity couple dance reality show Nach Baliye 8. The two are consistent with their great dance performances and have received high scores last weekend. Pritam and Amanjjot’s perfect dance performance forced the judges Sonakshi Sinha, Terence Lewis and Mohit Suri to give them the Perfect 10 scores, adding up to Perfect 30! The couple received a standing ovation by Kaabil actor and super dancer of B-town, Hrithik Roshan, who was present as a guest on the show. Pritam Singh and Amanjjot danced on Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s hit song Janam Janam from the film Dilwale, the couple played blind lovers like in Kaabil and won hearts with their wonderful performance. Despite a back injury right before the act, Pritam Singh and his baliye Amanjjot scored a Perfect 30 this week.
But before the act, Pritam Singh was a bit scared due to his back problem and the duo was also a bit doubtful about one particular lift. But that lift became the highlight of their act. We heard that two days before their performance, after not being able to do a particular lift at the rehearals, Pritam and Amanjjot decided they would convince their choreographer to replace the step with something simpler. The couple tried to change Sonali Kar’s mind, but she was quite determined that they would perfectly do the lift. In the first week of Nach Baliye 8 also, Pritam and Amanjjot won appreciation, as they performed on Shah Rukh Khan’s hit track Zaalima from the film Raees.

Pritam Singh and Amanjjot had recently revealed that their kids are their lucky charm. Pritam told us about his kids, “Adityaveera and Balraj are our stress-busters and also our lucky charm. We initially thought it was a bad idea to bring them on the sets due to the long hours and erratic schedules. But the elder one insisted he see our performance live. Plus he loves the stage. They are around us before our performance. We haven’t felt the anxiety or nervousness so far. So the sets have also become a home away from home for us.”
Amanjjot added, “It’s amusing how they realise the seriousness of the show and give us our space when we need it. They are constantly pepping us up. Wishing us luck with their hugs and kisses. I’m grateful, as I have my sisters constantly around them and also the production house to take good care of them when they are on the floor.” Coming back to their powerful dance performance that gave them a Perfect 30, here’s a look!
Pritam Singh told India.com, “I don’t know how we did it, but we did it. It wouldn’t have been possible without Sonali. I’d put my foot down. I suffered a back injury. It was her incredible spirit and never give up attitude that we had to give in to her faith. We were goofing up till the very end that made us more nervous. But Sonali kept reassuring that it’ll be perfect. I think it was her passion and farsightedness which gave us the energy during the final performance. We would have regretted it had we not done the act. She made us come out of our comfort zone and we were surprised at ourselves.”
The choreographers play a pivotal role in every dance reality show. Amanjjot, too, praised their choreographer Sonali and said, “We were scared that the lift will add to Pritam’s back woes and were reluctant to do the act. But she smiled because she knew she had designed it in such a way that it can never come on his back. We owe it to her. She had more faith in us than we had in ourselves.” Do let us know if you liked Pritam and Amanjjot’s dance performance! Stay tuned for more updates on Nach Baliye 8.
