Chapter 27 - Sangeet 4

 
It was Pavan’s and Adhiti’s turn next. Adhiti picked up the theme chit and passed it out to Anjali who did the announcement. The theme was “Woo your girl” Anjali announced with glee while NK and Dadi gave a hi5 while Khushi looked at them surprised. Sunny whispered in her ears that her Bhai and Adhiti were an item which left Khushi’s jaw wide open in surprise, ' how did she miss this vital information'. Khushi looked at the stage and saw her Bhai with a handsome smile holding out his hand for Adhiti to join him on the stage. Alexy announced the song for their dance from the DJ stage as “Dil Dooba” from the movie Khakee.

Adhiti was slightly nervous about the prospect of dancing with Mr. Raizada. Never in her life she had such nervous thoughts about dancing on stage. Ever since she could stand on her feet, she was a performer- dance, drama, modeling, and public speaking. But today on this stage, with Pavan as dance partner she could feel her heart beats escalating. On the other hand Pavan was immensely happy, even though NK’s game was stupid, Pavan was secretly happy to dance with Adhiti. No, he never danced before; even during his college life he was into sports than arts fests. But right from their first meeting he had felt connected with her. Adhiti’s bonding with Khushi calmed his heart and he was interested to know more about her. He looked towards her and saw she was fidgeting with her duppatta.

“Nervous?” He spoke to her in low tones while looking at the audience and smiling at them.

Adhiti was taken aback; she turned to face him with mild agitation and answered, “Why should I be nervous?”

Pavan just shrugged his shouldered and replied with a smile “I dunno! May be you are scared to dance with me”

Adhiti looked at him in disbelief and spoke “Excuse me?” a pause  “Scared? Me?”

She folded her hands in front of her and stood tall and answered, “Mr. Raizada, I started to dance from the age of three. I am not at all scared to dance on any stage with anyone. Got it?”

Pavan gave a impressive gesture with face while his eyes twinkled with mischief (after all he was the twins elder brother) “Achaa! It’s a great pleasure Ma’m to dance with such an experienced dancer like you” Pavan said keeping his right hand on his chest and gave a small bow while Adhiti huffed in pride and small happiness as her ego was boosted due to his approval.

She replied in a tone matching his “It’s a pleasure to dance with you to Mr. Raizada. Not everyone get a chance to dance with a business tycoon of your stature”.

Pavan just gave a heart melting cute smile making her heart flutter. Before the lights dimmed she was planning to walk to the other end of the stage, when he called out to her in low tones “Adhiti”; she turned with a questioning look.

Pavan spoke with hesitation but with smile “hmm…if we win this competition, I want to take you out for a dinner” a pause where he continued as “as a celebration dinner”.

Adhiti had difficulty to control the smile that was threatening to break on her face as she watched his expectant face.

She took a long breath and answered; “In case if we didn’t win?” she looked at him with raised eyebrows to which he immediately replied “Ah! If that’s the case, then I will definitely take you out for a dinner, as a loser’s dinner” Pavan said smilingly with all sincerity and the twinkle in his eyes finally made Adhiti’s control snap and she smiled back at him.

Both stood there looking at each other, smiling into each other’s eyes, unaware of their audiences’ surprised looks. Alexy broke their trance by announcing the count down for the song.


The music floats in the air while Pavan and Adhiti look at each other. The two minutes they were given to prepare their steps had gone with their talks and now the song has began.  Suddenly she felt Pavan pulling her as the lyrics began 




Dil Duuba Dil Duuba niilii aankhon men yeh dil duuba (My heart drowned, drowned in your blue eyes)


Pavan pulled Adhiti’s right hand and made her lean totally on him twice, Adhiti came out her initial shock and acts along. Pavan then pulls her close; locking his eyes with hers singing

mahabuuba mahabuuba bas yeh jaan le mahabuuba (Lover, lover, just realize this, lover)

He twirls her stylishly- once, twice.

The audience Anjali, Dadi, Khushi, NK, Sunny, Alexy, Anu, Mami, La were in a shock seeing Pavan acting too cool and dancing. Never had they seen this side of Pavan. Most of them had their mouth open in surprise. Mama, Viren and Arnav looked mildly surprised but seeing the shocked faces of their family members they broke into smiles. While Akash and Payal sat completely surprised in their seats, they didn’t even look at each other, they were completely immersed in the dancers enacting the song in front of them.

1st music beat
Pavan dances with grace, in step with the music
2nd music beat
Adhiti smiles and joins him

Dil Duuba dil Duuba niilii aankhon men yeh dil duuba (my heart drowned, drowned in your blue eyes)

Both of them hold their hands pulls and bends towards the other in grace along with the music beats

mahabuuba mahabuuba bas yeh jaan le mahabuuba (Lover, lover, just realize this, lover)

Both slants sideways without hitting each other and does a Punjabi bangara step


Adhiti walks off from Pavan, he goes behind her raking his hands through his hair in style and turns her and grinds into her and hits his forehead with hers slightly and looks into her eyes with sincerity singing the lyrics to her

aashiq huun diiwaana tere li'e kuchh bhii kar jaa'uunga (I'm your lover, I'm mad for you, I'd do anything for you)

During the music beats NK and Khushi look at each other in surprise with a “Is it really happening look” and they both are wreathed in smiles while they turn to face the stage again to see their Bhai in a different avatar. Dadi looked perfectly happy, she knew her plan is working. Arnav saw Khushi in all smiles, he couldn’t wait to get her all alone. But he has to wait, he cant suddenly pull her out of this crowd, her missing will be immediately noted; hence he waited standing there looking at her, lost in her. Khushi could feel his eyes on her, she looked at him in a secretive sideway glance with her eyes and when she saw he saw her glance she suddenly focused on stage. Arnav just smiled seeing her actions.

ishq men tere jiita huun tere li'e hii mar jaa'uunga (I live for your love; I could die for you)

Adhiti pushes Pavan away and walks to the other end singing

main tere jhaanse men na aa'uungii o re diiwaane jaa (I won't fall for your tricks; off with you, madman)

She dances to the music compelling a response from Pavan.

kyon (Why?)

Pavan asks in a questing stance

aisii vaisii banaake baaten mujhe naa tuu uljha (Don't try to confuse me with such sweet talk)

Adhiti comes near him singing the lyrics

luT jaa'uunga mit jaa'uunga dil tera jiitke dikhlaa'uunga (I'll be ruined, I'll be destroyed; when I win your heart, I'll show it off)

piichha na chhoruunga chaahe jitna tadpa (I won't stop following you no matter how much you torture me)

Pavan traps her instantly and moves with her backwards tickling her lightly. Adhiti looked at him surprised. At the same time, Sunny and NK looks at each other with raised eyebrows like “What the” in their shock and burst out laughing

dil Duuba dil Duuba niilii aankhon men yeh dil duuba (my heart drowned, drowned in your blue eyes)

mahabuuba mahabuuba bas yeh jaan le mahabuuba (Lover, lover, just realize this, lover!)

aashiq huun diiwaana tere li'e kuchh bhii kar jaa'uunga (I'm your lover, I'm mad for you, I'd do anything for you)

ishq men tere jiita huun tere li'e hii mar jaa'uunga (I live for your love; I could die for you)


Pavan keeps pulling Adhiti towards him and plays with her hair strands casually as if he does this all the time, making use of the opportunity maximum. While the audience encourages him with their cheers, hoots whistles

Adhiti gets slightly irritated and embarrassed with Pavan’s open flirting and casual touches and tries to hide it with her angry face.

Dadi and Anjali smiles wickedly at each other.

 Tinkling music

Pavan pulls Adhiti for close dance. For a minute Adhiti forgot all about her dance steps and swayed in his arms, the close proximity making her forgets everything. Both lost in each other’s eyes oblivious to the surrounding.

Khushi, Anu and La winked at each other while slowly grinning wickedly now.  They could tease Adhiti infinitely by this one dance.

badii tadap hai badii kashish hai merii to chaahat men hai (There's a great deal of torment and a great deal of charm in my love for you)

hazaar majnuun bane han paagal merii to muhabbat mein (A thousand lovers have gone mad in their love for me)

Adhiti regains sense and in order to compose herself nudges Pavan who comes back to his senses and continues nakaras with adhiti , she moves away from him and enacts the lyrics through dance steps with commentable confidence

Pavan compliments her dance
--------
tujhe ek din jaaneman pyaar kii laRiyaan pahanuunga (One day, darling, I'll put the chains of love on you)

dekhega saara jagaan tujhe le jaa'uunga (The whole world will watch me take you away)

Adhiti was about to cross pavan while he was singing the lyrics but he holds her and puts an arm around her shoulder singing janeman (at this juncture lot of whistles from audience) and pulls her and holds her possessively in his arms which leaves her very much shocked.

dil Duuba dil Duuba niilii aankhon men yeh dil Duuba (my heart drowned, drowned in your blue eyes)

mahabuuba mahabuuba bas yeh jaan le mahabuuba (Lover, lover, just realize this, lover!)

Adhiti’s face is red and she pulls away before pavan encloses her in an embrace, pavan is fully energetic now and dances vigrourously, teasing smile on his face intact while looking at adhiti and only adhiti

aashiq huun diiwaana tere li'e kuchh bhii kar jaa'uunga (I'm your lover, I'm mad for you, I'd do anything for you)

ishq men tere jiita huun tere li'e hii mar jaa'uunga
(I live for your love; I could die for you)

Pavan walks close to Adhiti and sings the lyrics to her; Adhiti blushes involuntarily but then tries to rein her feelings but blushes fiercely. Pavan slowly set her back to dance and both of them dance together.

At the close bit of music, family joins the duo on dance floor, ladies separate Adhiti and men separate Pavan and form two groups and cover them and dance, Pavan and Adhiti steal glances at each other during the final music realizing through their eyes…… their feelings
