Ganesh Hegde talks about joys of fatherhood

After 2011, which he calls a wonderful year, choreographer Ganesh Hegde is enthusiastic about 2012 turning out even better. For starters, he and his wife Sunayna will welcome their first child, in March.

Besides, on the work-front, he’ll be making his debut as an actor and director too. Not to forget a series of shows and tours for his album, of which a new video goes on air this Sunday.

Ganesh tells us that their first priority is that the baby should be healthy and the mother should be fine.

After that we’ll think of the names. However, we’ve done plenty of shopping for the mother and the baby on our holiday to Macau last November.

confesses the eager to-be papa.

The ace choreographer who won an award for getting maximum votes in an online poll that saw responses from 176 countries, Ganesh asserts that they will bring up their child with “our Indian values”.

He adds,

I know how tough it must have been for my parents… from a lower middle class family. So while I’ll give all the possible luxuries to our child, I’ll make sure that he/she learns all aspects of our culture.

Stressing on the importance of family bonding, Ganesh says, “I’ll be letting fatherhood sink in by spending a couple of weeks at home, with my baby.”

Of course, there’s plenty of work happening too, as he’s planning a series of shows and club tours in India, Dubai, Amsterdam and other cities.
