One of my biggest inspirations when it comes to oriental dancing is Guru Shobana, she is a classical dancer, and her grace and style really fascinates me and I also like the Chithrasena dance academy, currently run by Theja Dias. I really like the culture that they have created. It is classical dancing with a bit of a contemporary touch and some folk influence. It is very fascinating and inspiring to see.”

Even when I make productions, I like doing fused productions, because I think it is important to protect the core of a certain art and also be trendy. And I want to be known as an artist who does that.”
