I am an accidental actor, says Dance Deewane judge Shashank Khaitan

An ace director and Colors’ Dance Deewane’s judge Shashank Khaitan have been entertaining the nation with his offbeat dramatic movies and has managed to make a mark for himself in the industry in a very little time. 

This genius performer has seamlessly drawn attention and praise for every shoe that he has stepped into, be it big banner movies like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania or a cameo in Remo D’Souza’s ABCD 2 or his current role as a judge on India’s one of the most favorite Dance Reality Show.

Little did we know that the cameo was an unplanned stroke of destiny for the director. Colors’ Dance Deewane recently had Remo D’Souza as the guest for the Shaadi special episode where Shashank Khaitan revealed his story behind becoming an actor. He says that he became an actor by accident, courtesy none other than Remo D’Souza himself. 

It so happened that Shashank had visited Remo on the sets of ABCD 2 and within a fraction of minutes Remo had instructed the stylist and Shashank found himself dressed in a jacket and a hat ready to take on the camera.

Adding to the unpredictability was his co-star for the scene. Ready to deliver his first dialogue, Shashank saw Prabhu Deva coming in for the shot, pushing him into a roller coaster of emotions. But like it’s said that ‘all’s well that ends well’, a surprised and nervous Shashank gave his first shot and the rest is history.
