April 23 2010, the grand finale of DID-2 was conducted and Shakti Mohan was the winner of “Dance India Dance Season-2”. The show was telecasted by ZEE-TV. The newly crowned ‘Dance India Dance 2’ winner, Shakti Mohan wanted to become a bureaucrat but ended up being a dancer.
But, Shakti has no issues with it and has revealed that she will follow her heart and pursue her passion.
"I was always a topper in school and college and was determined to become an IAS (Indian Administrative Service) officer. But then ‘Dance India Dance’ came along. And now that I have won it, there’s no looking back.”
She added, "My father was quite insistent that I take the civil services exam and kept saying that ‘you can try till you’re 30 years old’. But now I’m not heading there, I’m going to study dance.”
The 24-year-old insisted that she always wanted to study dance from abroad but was not able to do so as her financial background is not so strong. But, after winning the title, she thinks that she can go to abroad to polish her skills of dancing.
"I will try and use whatever money I get here or in shows later to go abroad, especially London, and study dance seriously. Apart from contemporary dance, I also want to learn other forms of dancing such as Kathak and hip-hop," she said.
