Till last year Jhalak Dikkhhla Jaa was not just about dancing but about its three awesome judges – the gorgeous Madhuri Dixit, ace director Karan Johar and the talented Remo Dsouza. Things got topsy-turvy when Maddy decided to give season 8 a miss and so did Remo DSouza who is currently seen on a rival channel with another Dance show.
The only person left this year was Karan Johar and so considering all the missing angles, Colors decided to rope in another Bollywood actor and dancer Shahid Kapoor to join the panel along with KJo. The third judge was replaced by not one but two dancer and choreographer – The talented Ganesh Hegde and Lorraine Gottlieb.
So the season 8 titled Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8 titled Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded started with a bang with 4 judges judging the celebrity dancing competition. Though the show has changed a lot with respect to the entertainment level as Sasha’s sense of humor accentuated the show totally, right from the start, there have been rumors that he might quit the show soon.
However, it was not him but Karan Johar who had signed his resignation letter!
Karan Johar seems to have taken his film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” on floors and owing to this film commitment he cannot stay longer. In his official statement Karan mentioned, “This season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has been really exciting… However, owing to my film commitments, I am unable to be a part of the season till the end. Shahid (Kapoor) has been my partner-in-crime this season; we shared great chemistry which has made this season fun and entertaining for the viewers. A special shout out to Lauren Gottlieb, Ganesh Hegde and Manish Paul for adding lots of oomph, excitement and making this one of the most entertaining seasons.”
Right now the show is having average TRPs and so the makers of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded have approached yet another Bollywood biggie to feature as a judge in the show and the finalized judge is none other than Malaika Arora Khan – Karan Johar’s colleague from India’s Got Talent.
Will Malaika Arora Khan Increase the TRPs of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded?
Malaika Arora Khan is a great dancer and she has been judging a lot of reality show from many years now. She has also judged Nach Baliye, Zee Cinestar Ki Khoj and is also a judge of IGT – India’s Got talent. Full of talent, flair and a great persona, Colors team is now putting their bet on Malaika to create the magic on sets along with Sasha. Though we will sorely miss Karan Johar, we know Malaika Arora Khan will leave no stones unturned to entertain the viewers with her presence.
Here’’s what the diva had to say about her entry in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded –
“I’m really looking forward to step into Karan’s shoes and enjoy some spectacular performances along with Shahid and the other judges. I worship dance and hold it in high regard. I have sampled some awesome performances on this season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and not to mention, some great entertainment by Karan and Shahid. The contestants are truly terrific. Hope to have a gala time on the show from here on.”
Looking forward to see you Malaika….
