Ganesh Hegde has been inspired by Michael, crediting him with his success and adding it was dream to meet him.
Reveals Ganesh; “I needed a reason to believe that someone like me who was from a poor family could make it big. ‘Thriller’ was the reason I became a dancer. I have been dancing since I was a child but I was introduced to the western style by Michael Jackson.”
He has danced in five hundred stage shows around the world and choreographed for Michael’s show in India, even opening for him during his Indian leg of tour. “It was a dream come true to meet Michael. I met him backstage. I’ve grown up on his dance.”
Ganesh also says his first album, ‘Mein Deewana,’ was also inspired by Michael.
It is believed that Ganesh will pay tribute to Michael in his forthcoming album.
