He also shared who he considers his biggest competitor on the show and what is he looking forward to. Excerpts from the interview:

What do you think will be your USP as a couple on Nach Baliye?

Shantanu- I honestly don't feel that you need to have a said 'USP' in a relationship! Though the thing that sets us apart is that we are still in the 'liking' phase at the moment! It is the beginning of the relation, where its all about getting to know each other. Considering the duration of our relationship being the youngest right now, well this phase is honestly the best one. 

Nityaami- As a couple, we are pretty easy going, fun and candid. And just two people who prefer going with the flow and taking each day as it comes! So, that I feel is our USP or more like qualities which bring out who we truly are as people, and what made us initially click together!

What finally made you say yes to the show? What is that you are looking forward to the most?

Shantanu: I have been offered Nach Baliye in the past, but was not in a relationship so never took it up. Though this time it accidentally slipped out from my mouth that I am seeing someone, after which things just fell into place and Nityaami and I mutually decided to do the show. We are also using this as an opportunity to spend more time together and explore our relationship. Also, Nityaami is someone who loves dancing, and I am now happy to bring back dance into her life. 

You are pitted against many other celebrity couples including ex-couples. What is your take on the new concept of the show this time? Would you have been comfortable participating with an ex?

Shantanu: Talking about the theme of the show, well that is the channel's decision of course, but yes it might be interesting to see the ex-couples dancing and working together. Though talking about myself, I don't have an ex so there is nothing I can say about being comfortable or not. 

Your biggest competitor on the show currently, and why?

Shantanu: I honestly don't know who our competitor is, as Nach Baliye is not only about dance, but also other factors like the chemistry between couples as well as their relationship stance and background. So its an entire package put together which makes each couple stand out and showcase the best they have on the show.
