Hrithik Roshan’s ‘smoothest airwalker’ Baba Jackson didn’t even have shoes, mirror when he started making videos
TikTok sensation Yuvraj Singh aka Baba Jackson opened up about his journey and said that he did not have a mirror at home when he started making videos, and would watch his shadow while practising.
From Hrithik Roshan to Varun Dhawan, Bollywood is all praise for viral sensation Yuvraj Singh, popularly known as Baba Jackson, who shot to fame through his dance videos on TikTok. Recently, Hrithik shared a compilation of his videos on Twitter and called him the “smoothest airwalker I have seen”.
In an interview with India Today, Yuvraj opened up about his struggles and revealed that when he started making videos, he did not even have a mirror at home to see himself while dancing.
“Earlier, I used to make TikTok videos but they hardly got views. However, I continued with it. Gradually, I started getting a good response on my videos. I also improved on my dance skills. I did not have a mirror in my house and could not see myself while dancing or practising. So, I used to see my shadow and practice MJ Style dance,” he said.
युवराज ने अपने संघर्षों के बारे में खुलासा किया :
इससे पहले, मैं TikTok वीडियो बनाता था लेकिन उन्हें शायद ही देखने को मिलता था। हालाँकि, मैंने इसे जारी रखा। धीरे-धीरे, मुझे अपने वीडियो पर अच्छी प्रतिक्रिया मिलनी शुरू हो गई।
मैंने अपने नृत्य कौशल में भी सुधार किया। मेरे घर में दर्पण नहीं था और नृत्य करते हुए या अभ्यास करते हुए मैं खुद को नहीं देख सकता था। इसलिए, मैं अपनी छाया को देखता था और एमजे स्टाइल नृत्य का अभ्यास करता था।“ उसने कहा।
Yuvraj, who pays tribute to pop legend Michael Jackson in his videos, said that he began his journey by making barefoot videos in his room. “I’ve learnt dancing by watching YouTube videos at home. I have been practising MJ Style dance since the past 5-6 months. First, I used to make videos in my room, barefoot. Then, I bought shoes and later started making videos on my terrace,” he said.

“मैंने घर पर YouTube वीडियो देखकर नृत्य सीखा है। मैं पिछले 5-6 महीनों से एमजे स्टाइल नृत्य का अभ्यास कर रहा हूं। पहले मैं अपने कमरे में नंगे पैर वीडियो बनाता था। फिर, मैंने जूते खरीदे और बाद में अपनी छत पर वीडियो बनाना शुरू किया।
After gaining popularity on the internet, Yuvraj was invited to join a Delhi-based dance troupe, Skeleton. He also recently auditioned for the upcoming season of the dance reality show India’s Best Dancer.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan shared a video of Yuvraj with the team of Street Dancer 3D, including Shraddha Kapoor, Punit Pathak and Salman Yusuff Khan. In the video, the TikTok sensation can be seen dancing to the Muqabla remix from the film.
वरुण ने लिखा, ” असली स्ट्रीट डांसर बहोत मज़ा आया ब्रेकिंग दी इंटरनेट। उनकी सह-कलाकार नोरा फतेही वीडियो से अवाक थीं और इसे “UNBELIEVABLE” कहा।
“With the one they call @babajackson2019. The real street dancer Bahut maaza ayaaa keep breaking the Internet,” Varun wrote. His co-star Nora Fatehi was awestruck by the video and called it, “UNBELIEVABLE.”
Meanwhile in the Street Dancer 3D song Muqabla, Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhu Deva recreated scenes from the original 1994 film Kadhalan/Humse Hai Muqabla.
Street Dancer 3D is one of the biggest dance films of Bollywood and is set against an India-Pakistan dance rivalry, in which Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor play competing dancers from opposing sides of the border. Directed by filmmaker-choreographer Remo D’Souza, Street Dancer 3D is all set to hit screens on January 24.
