- New Delhi, Sep 21 (IANS) After proving she can wield a sword, ride a horse and do the malkhamb effortlessly, actress Kratika Sengar, who wowed viewers as the fiery 'Jhansi Ki Rani', is all set to showcase her prowess over classical Bharatnatyam in the upcoming Ganesha Chaturthi special episode of "Pavitra Rishta".
"I am performing a classical dance to the song 'Man mohini' from 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' in Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations in 'Pavitra Rishta'. The evocative lyrics and the drama infused by Shankar Mahadevan's spirited vocal style make this song a personal favourite," said the actress.
Kratika is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer, and loved the experience of shooting for the episode, to be aired on Zee TV, Saturday.
