Earlier, Shakir used to repair punctured car tyres in his hometown. Rihan, who is 9 years old, has been dancing since the age of 7. It was only a matter of time before both the cousins started dancing together. Soon, they were taking part in and auditioning for reality shows like Dance India Dance and Stage Vibe. They went on to win many local competitions, but it was in the renowned dance show, Dance Plus, Season 5 that they were among the top 30 finalists, and that was when they decided to move on to a bigger arena. Now, they have beaten all odds and reached the platform of America's Got Talent. [1]
