Ravi Dubey, who considers himself as a big fan of ace choreographer-filmmaker Prabhudheva, got a chance to share the stage with him while shooting for soap opera 'Jamai Raja'.

Prabhudheva visited the show's set to promote his forthcoming film 'Singh is Bliing'. Ravi was nervous on the day of the shoot as his long cherished dream of meeting his screen idol in person finally turned into reality.

"He is one of the most proficient dancers, and an inspiration to many in our country. Being a huge fan, I owe most of what I know of dance to him as I've learnt so much just by following his dance moves," Ravi said in a statement.

"When I was a kid, the only exposure to real dancing were VHS tapes of 'Mukkala Mukkabala' and 'Urvashi Urvashi' ... he has been a mentor of sorts and I'd never imagined that a day would come when I would share screen space with him.

"It was quite unnerving to match steps with him as I was excited and nervous at the same time. It was an experience of a lifetime for me to dance with my idol," he added.

The episode featuring Prabhudheva will be aired on Thursday.
