Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Grand Premiere


The season’s most awaited moment arrived this weekend when Colors’ reintroduced the most popular celebrity dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Season 6. This year’s show began with a bang as India’s most lovable host, Manish Paul and Sanaya Irani, most popular for her characters Gunjan, Khushi and Chhanchhan set the stage on fire with their mind-blowing performance to Tumse Milke from Main Hoon Na, followed by the entry of this year’s co-host, comedian Kapil Sharma.

Adding to the flavors of the night, former contestant, trained dancer and actor Sushant Singh Rajput introduced the female contestants of the show in an unforgettable performance. While the ladies got a little help from Sushant, our handsome hunks were accompanied by the hot and happening Jacqueline Fernandez in a medley of heart pumping songs. When the contestants entered with such a bang, how can our judges stay behind? Judge Remo D’souza, accompanied by the flawless team of choreographers tore the stage apart in the most primitively passionate way ever – dancing to the jungle tunes of Beera, ace director Karan Johar emerged from in between a crowd of girls while dancing. Diva Madhuri Dixit was seen swaying with Ranbir Kapoor to the tunes of Ghagra. On day two of the show, the Deol trio – Dharmendra ji, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol graced the show with their charm. The acclaimed Pandit Birju Maharaj also made an appearance.

Unlike previous seasons, this season hit the ground running. The contestants were told that their first performance itself is to be judged for eliminations next week. This week’s opening act was television’s very own Madhubala – Drashti Dhami, who waltzed along with choreographer Salman Yusuf Khan, followed by Lauren, Aarti, Meghna and Suresh, Karanvir Bohra, Sonali and Sampath, Siddharth Shukla, Shaan and Ekta. Eijaz Khan, who was to be the 12th and final contestant has supposedly opted out due to a last minute injury. Next week’s episode will not only hold the first elimination but will also introduce the twelfth participant of the show. Who will it be? As Karan Johar said, akalmand ko ishara kafi hota hai.
