“‘Nach ke bahane touch, no way!’ ‘But why? “Ex ho, that’s why!” The nation had waited with bated breath to unmask the masked partners at the premiere of the ninth season of the most-awaited dance reality show, Nach Baliye. And finally, on July 19, 2019, the jodis were unmasked in a three-day premier on the national television. While in every season, celebrities battled for the 'Nach Baliye' title by grooving with their baliyes, but in the ninth season, the makers had come up with an interesting format which has certain stars dancing with their ex-baliyes.

Urvashi Dholakia and Anuj Sachdev belong to the latter category, and the ex-lovebirds have already set the stage on fire with their first appearance on the show. But do you know that Urvashi and Anuj practice separately for their dance rehearsals? And no, it is not because the two cannot stand each other. In a BTS video shared by Urvashi, she revealed why her ex-baliye, Anuj prefers practising separately. She wrote, “We are a combination of Serious & Funny... Behind the scenes of the music video shoot When @apnanuj gets distracted with my mischievous face he practices separately for Perfection #nachbaliye9”.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Sabki Laadli Bebo fame, Anuj Sachdeva revealed why he said yes to Nach Baliye 9, what is he looking forward to the most on the show and how much time he took to give a nod. When asked, “What has been the major reason for you to say yes?” Anuj retorted, “I started my career with a reality show, Roadies. I was itching to do another reality show where I would get to learn something new. Since I have never been a dancer, this was a challenge worth taking up.”
Given that the theme of Nach Baliye 9 is slightly different from the earlier ones, Anuj Sachdeva revealed how much time did he take to give a nod. He stated, “Well, it did take some thinking. But then I was like as Urvashi and I have been friends for years it was comfortable to say yes. Also, I did not think too much about the theme or what people would decipher, I just wanted to do a dance show simple as that.”
Anuj Sachdeva was then asked about what is he looking forward to the most on this Nach Baliye 9 journey, given that he has participated with his ex, and what according to him will be the strength and weak point of Uruj (Urvashi and Anuj’s hashtag on the show). Anuj remarked, “To become a fabulous dancer. I want people to say by the end of my journey in NB that "Boy! Anuj can dance!" Our weak point as a couple is that we are both non-dancers. Strength is we are both extremely hard-working and dedicated to our craft.” Revealing his reaction when he was told about the theme of this season, Anuj said, “I thought it's interesting. Different but pretty interesting.” (Also Read: Faisal Khan Celebrated GF, Muskaan Kataria's Birthday On Nach Baliye 9 Set, Posts A Lovely Wish)
Earlier in an interview with BollywoodLife, Urvashi Dholakia had talked about her personal life and had said, "My personal life has actually been an open book in one way, but on the other side, it has also been a mystery. And I like it that way. I don't like speculations, I'd rather like people coming up to me and asking me. And you'll have to give me the liberty if I'm willing to talk about it at the moment. It's my prerogative to answer anything in my personal life."
Speaking about her ex-baliye, Anuj Sachdeva, Urvashi Dholakia had shared, "With me and my Baliye, the case is that we both are mature enough to understand that it didn't work out and we still respect each other. One thing didn't go wrong and you can't clap with one hand. So, it was a mutual thing, we both were wrong and right at some point in time. Whatever went wrong is for me to know and I'm not the kinds to wash my dirty linen in public. No matter what happened between us, we are still friends."
In an interview with the IANS, Urvashi Dholakia had revealed that with the participation on Nach Baliye 9, she is not looking forward to giving her relationship with ex, Anuj Sachdeva a second chance. Urvashi was quoted as saying, "If a chapter is over, it is not necessary to reopen those pages. Why not start a new chapter and build a new relation? I believe two people who were in a relationship can remain good friends. There is nothing wrong with that. I am not in my twenties, so I do think a little differently now. I believe in mature living and don't like to hold grudges. Sometimes you have to move on to find happiness in life. That's what I did. I am participating in the show with my ex but it does not mean that I am giving a second chance to the relationship. One has to understand that I come from a different school of thought."
