Tara-Jean Popowich became talk of the town for her magnificent performances in the popular reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. However, as all good things come to an end, the extraordinary dancer has finally bid adieu to COLORS‘ dance reality show. Pitted against child genius Akshat Singh in the face-off, Tara along with choreographer Jack missed the bus to the final six by a matter of a couple of points.
A wildcard contestant, Tara was lovingly rechristened Popo by anchor Manish Paul as she won accolades from the judges and audiences alike with her hot and happening moves. During her journey the international dance show winner found herself in the bottom two at two separate occasions – once against television actor Kiku Sharda and a second time against Akshat Singh when she found herself ousted from the show. Being a seasoned dancer, Popo put up some stunningly memorable performances encapsulating various dance forms which wowed audiences. Always warm and smiling, the artiste cemented a place for herself in the hearts of one and all.
Speaking about her exit Tara said, “I absolutely loved every moment on this stage and I have no regrets whatsoever. This experience has given me friends I can call family and country where I completely feel at home. I’m now looking forward to see what else is in store for me in India!”
Tara says among those she will miss the most is the hosting duo Manish Paul and Ranvir Shorey. “Even though a lot of the time I didn’t understand what they were saying, they still made me laugh. I get attached to people. Madhuri, sitting there, always looking so stunning. Remo and Karan, not looking as stunning but their feedback helped me grow as a dancer. At the contestants’ booth, I would have a blast with Jack, Shampa and Ashish we would just giggle over silly things because we were all so tired, make funny faces at each other.”
