Salman Khan produced dance reality show Nach Baliye 9 has opened to extremely good TRP ratings. The show has a very interesting format for this season where not only the current couple but ex-couples will also battle for the coveted trophy. However, amidst this entire hullabaloo, Yuvika Chaudhary and Prince Narula suffered a tragic loss. Price’s younger brother passed away after drowning in Canada. Prince who was shooting for the show at the moment had an emotional breakdown hearing the news of his brother’s demise.
However, the TV celeb couple did not let this grief overpower them and dedicated their performance to Prince’s younger brother Rupesh. Sharing a few glimpses of their performance, Prince wrote an emotional post on Instagram that read, “This weekend's performance is quite personal for both of us! Don't forget to watch #NachBaliye9 on @starplus 8-9 PM @banijayasia @princenarula @star.aniljha @yuvikachaudhary #love #fun #cute #shoot #prince #yuvika #family #waheguru.”
Yuvika’s and Prince’s performance set the stage on fire and the couple was also the first five couples to receive full marks from the judges. The two star performers moved everyone to tears with their personal loss. When Salman came to know about Prince’s brother’s death through Yuvika he said, “To lose someone this young is the most difficult thing in life. You have come here (on Nach Baliye) despite your brother's demise... I think you're the strongest men I have ever come across and now you win this show. You need to win this show and you need to win it for your brother."
Rupesh had got married only two months back and was only 25 years old. Talking about Rupesh, Prince had earlier said, “Rupesh had settled in the US. Uski shaadi sirf doh mahine pehle hui thi (It has been just two month since he got married). He was only 25. Bhabhi was staying with us and her visa etc was being arranged. She would have joined him soon...Bhai was staying with a family in Toronto and they had ventured to a beach spot on Monday. That family went back home after some time, but Rupesh stayed back on the beach with a friend. The friend also left the beach to pull the car out from the parking lot and Rupesh told him ‘tu chal, main bas aata hoon’ Rupesh’s friend pulled out the car and heard a loud commotion ‘doob gaya, doob gaya’. He ran back inside and they couldn’t find Rupesh for 20 minutes, and when they did, he was no more.”
