Choreographer Sumit Khetan on his struggles with hypothyroidism: I know I’ll overcome... I’m determined to not stop working

For a dancer, it is believed that fitness is the key. Sumit Khetan also agrees with the same. However, at the moment he is going through a personal struggle. The eminent wedding choreographer has been diagnosed with thyroid and has put on a lot of weight.

“Fitness is one of the most integral parts in the life of a dancer. But, sadly, I have not been able to keep myself fit of late. I obviously used to be healthy at some point of time but I've now got thyroid because of that my entire schedule and lifestyle has changed. I have put on a lot of weight and definitely I have been facing a lot of challenges from the time I've put on weight, but I've not stopped,” he says. Not one to give up easily, recently, he earned appreciation for his choreography and presentation for singer Rahul Vaidya and Disha Parmar’s much-talked about wedding. “I know I will overcome these things and I am determined to not stop working. To be honest, dance has got nothing to do with whether you are fat or slim. It's technically the spirit of dancing that should burn within you. But, of course, being fitter and slimmer helps you perform better, do stunts, lifts and jumps. So I think yes it is important to be fit but you need to have the right spirit to excel,” adds Sumit, who has choreographed for Bigg Boss and The Kapil Sharma Show, have worked with actors like Ayushmann Khurrana, Sunny Leone, Vaani Kapoor, Ritvik Dhanjani, Nakul Mehta and Ruslaan Mumtaz and several other eminent politicians, businessmen, among others.

In fact, in future he plans to have his own reality show. He reveals, “I want to produce my own reality show based on dancing. Since I am a wedding choreographer, this reality show would have something to do with weddings where people get to see how creative the wedding choreography can be. Also I just cherish the love and blessing I get from the people from the occasion.”
