Sarika Bijali was just three years old when she auditioned for season five of India’s Got Talent in 2014. She had a ton of energy as she danced all over the stage with a traditional routine. People couldn’t believe how much talent she had at such a young age. Take a look at her unforgettable audition below.
Sarika Bijli Auditioned For ‘India’s Got Talent’ As A Toddler
Sarika has been dancing since she was one and a half years old. She and her parents have always dreamed of her becoming a dancer and thought the India’s Got Talent stage was the perfect place to achieve that dream. Her audition went viral as people marveled at the three-year-olds ability to remember choreography and execute it flawlessly. The best part is, she kept a smile on her face the entire time. Sarika received praise from the judges and made it all the way to the semi-finals on the show. She also has been featured in other dance performances found on YouTube like this one from Ganesh Acharya Dance Academy.
Sarika Is All Grown Up Now
Now at nine years old, Sarika’s Instagram bio says that she is still a dancer in India after appearing on India’s Got Talent. Recently she posted a selfie with the caption “I am proud to be an Indian…………. I love my India.”
She also recently celebrated Raksha Bandhan with her family. It is “the full-moon day of the Hindu month of Sravana (July/August), this festival celebrates the love of a brother for his sister. On this day, sisters tie rakhi on the wrists of their brothers to protect them against evil influences, and pray for their long life and happiness.”
Sarika also posted this picture to show off her flexibility on National Dance Day. It definitely looks like she has still got some awesome moves to show for all of her years of training.
But truthfully, not much is known about Sarika’s life after India’s Got Talent. It seems like she keeps most details rather private and several searches on the internet for her lack these same personal details. Did going viral help her launch her career? Not quite yet but it could definitely happen soon.
But in any case, this nine-year-old is thriving and living her best life and who knows, maybe we’ll see her perform on another ‘Got Talent’ franchise in the future like India’s Bad Salsa. They recently appeared on season 15 of America’s Got Talent, and much like Sarika, began practicing dancing at a very young age.
