In a recent interview, this 43 year old Czech actress, model, singer and dancer had a few things to say about the dancing skills that she frequently puts in-use in her Indian film roles.
When Yana met Indian native Satyakam Gupta in 2001, she fell in love with him, got married, packed her bags and moved to his homeland. Yana divorced Satyakam in 2005 but decided to remain in India and began to embrace the culture. Since her arrival, Yana is often offered roles of dancers, in Bollywood. This vegetarian stated that it took her sometime to portray a professional dancer on set; she knew it would take a lot of practice and discipline.
After years of dancing, she has had a few mishaps on the dance floor, such as a broken nose and broken ribs, but nothing has stopped this beauty from slowing down her body movements. Mrs. Gupta has a lot of respect for this art of interpreting; she loves music and just lets herself go with it.
Yana states that people can perceive when you are overthinking a dance routine, so she tries to enjoy it—even if she messes up. This dancer knows that even professionals have some bad days—that is just part of being a human.
Currently, this single woman is planning on writing a book about health and fitness and taking on more musical films in Bollywood.
