East meets West, Jhalak's theme of the week had just begun to excite the best Jodi of Jhalak when Salman sprained his neck and was rushed to the hospital. That is when Cornel stepped into the beautiful Isha Sharvani's life, like a Knight in the Shining Armour.
Well, but this is just the nicer part of the story. Ask about being the last minute replacement of choreographer Salman and Cornel starts off, “I had to step in the shoes of someone like Salman, who had already made a very strong base for himself in the show. I had very limited time and at the same time, i did not want to do a mediocre job.”
As opposed to a week's time, Cornel and Isha had just few hours in hand, “We just had six hours to prepare the entire act. The pressure of limited time plus fulfilling huge expectations that Salman's fans and Isha had from me were adding more to the worries. I did not want to disappointed anyone,”he said.
Cornel has been a part of Dance reality show Dance India Dance, Season-II has assisted many choreographer's on Jhalak. Now it's time to see if he will be able to maintain the record of perfect 30 for Isha and Salman.
