Subhreet Kaur lost her leg in a road accident in 2009. She hasn’t let that stop her from becoming one of the biggest inspirations to come out of the India’s Got Talent franchise. Take a look at her incredibly inspiring dance routine below
One-Legged Dancer Subhreet Kaur Performed On ‘India’s Got Talent’
Subhreet reportedly needed seven operations on her leg after sustaining injuries in 2009. She was riding on the back of her friends moped when they turned a sharp corner and were thrown from the bike. During one of her first surgeries, doctors cut a vital vein which worsened her condition. Ultimately, she had her leg amputated after infections began spreading. She was determined to recover and gain her strength back so she could audition for India’s Got Talent. Her mother watched from backstage with tears in her eyes. Subhreet received a standing ovation from the judges after performing a dazzling routine that left everyone inspired. She said that dancing helped her find her confidence again after her accident and it really showed. She was chosen to make it into the final but ultimately did not end up taking home the grand prize.
Still, everyone was so moved by her time on the show that she became a local celebrity. “I always loved dancing but my parents wanted me to study so I worked hard to become a nurse,” she told DailyMail. “The accident changed my life; it not only took my leg but it gave me the determination to fulfill my dreams. Now I’m dancing for a living and I love it.”
She Went Through Some Relationship Troubles
After appearing on India’s Got Talent, Subhreet married gym owner Yash Makkar. She initially gushed about the marriage and how happy she was before things took a turn. She said that he lied about his family background and stole money from her. Not to mention, Subhreet said that her husband said that he was 27 years old when he was actually 21. She alleges that she found all of this out three days after they were married. “They started asking about the property and the money I earned from doing television shows,” Subhreet said of her husband’s family. “He took away Rs 20 lakh, saying he has to repay his father debt besides withdrawing Rs 1.45 lakh from my account which I had earned by doing a television commercial.”
“He also demanded Rs 6 lakh. When I refused, he openly said that he married an amputee for money, which shattered me,” Shubhreet said. The dancer went more into detail about the horrors of her marriage alleging physical and mental abuse. There were even days that she said Yash kept her locked away in a dark room. “I used to tell people that disability cannot stop one from winning the world. I never knew that one day the man whom I married will address me as langdi (amputee),” Shubhreet said.
Subhreet Has Moved On From Her Marriage And Continues Dancing
Subhreet has not let anything get in the way of achieving her dreams. She constantly posts videos and pictures working hard in the gym. She has even taken on some viral TikTok dances.
One of her most recent captions on an Instagram picture says “Courage Doesn’t always Roar… Sometimes it’s The Quiet Voice At the End of the Day Whispering “I WILL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW.”
Another one of her recent Instagram dancing videos has the caption “I dance Like I m Dancing on Two Legs.”
Subhreet definitely has one of the most inspirational stories of all time and India’s Got Talent was only just the beginning.
