Bhubaneswar: Eleven-year-old Roshan Kumar Sahu from Odisha’s Jharsuguda district left the judges at DID L’il Masters Season 5 spellbound with his scintillating performance, making it to the next round of the popular dance reality show.
The Judges– celebrity choreographer Remo D’Souza, Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre and TV actress Mouni Roy–were all praises for the little kid as he performed hip-hop on a remix of ‘Aaila Re Ladki Mast Mast‘.
The very next moment, they were moved to know how his mother Sharda Devi has been striving to ensure her son’s dream comes true, despite having a troubled life. The woman sells bangles door-to-door to eke out a living for her three children after moving out of her in-laws’ house, where she was subjected to domestic violence.
“My husband used to torture me physically and mentally over small issues. He used to beat me frequently in inebriated condition. One day, he tried to set me on fire after pouring kerosene on me. After that, I ran away from the house with my children. Now I am staying with my parents,” Sharda said while sharing her plight in front of the judges on the show.
While Sharda sells bangles door-to-door, her elder son works as a daily wage labourer.
“Many people in our locality have told me to give proper training to Roshan as he dances very well. But I cannot afford it,” she added.
Touched by Sharda’s struggle for her kids, Remo said, “You reminded me of my mother. She used to support me like this at a time when had nothing. Whenever a child like you performs in front of me, I see my reflection in them.”
Assuring his support, Remo said, “I take the responsibility of Roshan’s dance training from today as long as he wants to pursue it. Roshan! from now on, you are mine.”
All the three judges pressed the ‘YES’ button for Roshan selecting him for the next round.
