The platform will showcase dancers with diverse cultures and dig deep into relationships that are bound by dance. The incredible trio Lara Dutta, Ahmed Khan and Dana Alexa will judge these participants not just on the technicality but also on how well they emote their bond through their performance. The most unexpected and unusual pairs participating in the show will make this journey more endearing.”
Talking about the show Ranjeet Thakur and Hemant Ruprell, Producers – Frames said, “High Fever… Dance Ka Naya Tevar is a platform that will not just explore dance to its maximum potential but also strengthen the bond between the participating jodis, who have come together in the first place because of their shared passion for dance. This is something that hasn’t been showcased on television before and we are certain that a format like this will strike a chord with the audience. The talent on the show has been handpicked from every nook and corner of the country to bring to viewers compelling stories and unmatched performances. We are glad to have found a partner in &TV for a format like High Fever as our synergies and sensibilities are in complete sync with each other.”
Making her television debut as judge on the show, actor Lara Dutta said, “Dance has been an integral part of my life and career and so have the relationships. Real life connections are the key to High Fever, and the contestants will have to express their respective relationships through the unique lens of various dance styles. I will see these two things as a driving force for me to judge the performances. I am extremely excited about my TV debut with such a promising concept and a platform like &TV. I hope the audience will enjoy this unique blend of dance with diverse duos and wholeheartedly support my new stint.”
Adding further, Ahmed Khan said, “There are many rules to follow while dancing in pairs – some said and many unsaid, and High Fever will highlight them beautifully. Most people consider dance to be just about the steps and rhythm, but it is also something that needs to be felt from within. Being a choreographer, while I’ll keep a close eye on the technicalities, I am also looking forward to some amazing chemistry between the jodis. I am certain that the show will be loved by the audience owing to its distinctive concept.”
Talking about her debut in the Indian entertainment industry, Dana Alexa said, “I have travelled the world to pursue my passion towards dancing and I am happy to have had the opportunity to come to India to judge High Fever… Dance Ka NayaTevar. Dance has been a significant part of India’s rich culture where the styles differ across states and that is something I find very intriguing. I am looking forward to seeing such diversity on the show as well. I hope the Indian audience will love me for my talent and my love towards dance. I am looking forward to this new and thrilling journey with &TV.”
