While other girls were a little shaky, I was the only girl from Gujarat who never lost courage and breezed through the whole journey with confidence.”
Vinod also continues to post dance videos on Instagram. “India’s Got Talent was the best thing that ever happened to me,” he said in an interview. “It transformed my life. Before I went on the show, I was a nobody and suddenly I was a celebrity. I not only began to earn a lot of money, but a lot of respect and recognition as well.”
