Mini, on the other hand, wrote an emotional post about Hemu’s genius and reminisced how he taught her different dance styles during the course of the show. She wrote, “Those who know, do. Those who understand, teach. When Hemu Sinha was designated to be my choreographer for Jhalak Dikhlaja 2, he had come out of a self imposed exile from dance after 15 years, had lost 25 kilos and was raring to go. I was skeptical because I thought I needed someone ‘sharper’ to make me look good since I was a novice at dance forms that weren’t about jumping wildly to music.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Those who know, do. Those who understand, teach. When Hemu Sinha was designated to be my choreographer for Jhalak Dikhlaja 2, he had come out of a self imposed exile from dance after 15 years, had lost 25 kilos and was raring to go. I was skeptical because I thought I needed someone ‘sharper’ to make me look good since I was a novice at dance forms that weren’t about jumping wildly to music. Over 4 -5 months Hemu taught me the intricacies of so many dance styles : backflips, tango, turns, rolls, salsa, cha cha cha and naga. His knowledge and experience was SO deep that he knew exactly at which angle a hold could go wrong. I was impatient, competitive and liked short cuts. He was patient, confident & told me to enjoy learning the form without worrying about scores and votes. A true teacher. And the only one who I could match a step with in heels. Today he passed away due to covid. RIP Hemu .. make the angels dance with you. #RIP #HemuSinha #choreographer #danceteacher
