Where there is a will, there is a way. Proving the popular adage, divyang youth Padmanav Sahoo from Odisha’s Berhampur recently stunned everyone with his spectacular performance on popular celebrity chat show The Kapil Sharma Show (TKSS) on the occasion of International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
TKSS, hosted by stand-up comedian and actor Kapil Sharma is quite popular among the TV audience and several celebrities grace the show to promote their movies. Performing on the popular show last week (on December 3), Padmanav has once again hogged the headlines!
“On December 3, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, I got the opportunity to perform on the sets of famous comedy show The Kapil Sharma Show, which was aired later. The cast of Salaam Venky, including Kajol, Revathi, and Vishal Jethwa graced the show. As Vishal is portraying the character of a disabled, my team was invited to give a dance performance on the show,” said Padmanav.
Further, he added, “After our performance, everyone at the show including Kapil, Kajol, director Revathi as well as the audience got emotional. Many people couldn’t control their tears and showered praises for the performance. My team received a standing ovation and we got quite enthralled by it.”
Expressing his desires, Padmanav said if he gets a chance, he would definitely work in movies.
Notably, Padmanav was a member of the popular Prince Dance Group that brought laurels for the State with their impeccable performances at the India’s Got Talent.
Though he is unable to walk properly, he mesmerises everyone with his excellent dance skills thanks to his strong willpower. As a young child, his mobility was affected due to polio. However, he achieved success with his dedicated efforts and managed to earn a distinguished identity.
Currently, Padmanav resides in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad and is running a dance school which has more than 40 students.
