Nakuul had said in an interview- "Watching Madhuri Dixit dance to Ek Do Teen and songs from Saajan made me want to be as graceful and smooth a dancer. Strangely enough, she led me to pick up dance as a six-year-old. However, it was training with Shiamak (Davar), Terence (Lewis) and Sandip Soparrkar that eventually further propelled my interest in dancing."
