Mumbai, June 14 (IANS) When expressive and graceful Drashti Dhami danced sensuously on “Jaadu hai nasha hai” on the “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6” stage, her sensuous side left filmmaker Karan Johar in awe.
The filmmaker, who is one of the judges on the dance reality show, also had an innovative comment to make, said a source.
“After the performance, KJo said, ‘Madhubala’ bani Zeenat Aman! ‘Madhubala’ is a show where she would hardly be doing anything like that, but today, she was extremely naughty and sexy in this performance’,” the source added.
For her fusion performances, Drashti and her choreographer Salman Yusuff Khan, have chosen Argentine Tango and Contemporary dance forms. The concept revolved around two strangers who meet at night.
‘Connected Hum Tum’ participant happy with changes at home
Belly dance instructor and dentist Preeti Kochhar, a contestant on “Connected Hum Tum”, says the show is working wonders for her. Her husband has started placing his towel at the right place ever since he has come to know that his habit of flinging the towel irked her.
The Zee TV show is about women and their woes, told through stories of six women. Preeti is one of them.
In one of the recent episodes of the show, she complained how her husband invariably flings the towel around on the bed after bathing. She had to go around picking it up every time. But ever since she has shared her woes on the show, she has witnessed a positive change at home.
“It was a delightful surprise for me when my husband actually started making a conscious effort to park his towel in the right place after his bath on seeing that episode. He’s been religiously doing so lately,” Preeti said in a statement.
She juggles being a mother and wife, and giving time to her profession and her passion for dance — and is also happy that her husband has been spending more time at home.
“Looks like the show’s really working! I hope more and more men watching the show and the stories of our lives begin to understand their own mothers, wives, girlfriends and sisters better and act more sensitively towards them as a result,” she added.
Siddharth Shukla becomes ‘hero’ in KJo’s eyes
Siddharth Shukla, who has gained popularity for his portrayal of Shivraj Shekhar of “Balika Vadhu”, has a ‘hero-wala quality’ about him, filmmaker Karan Johar said on a dance reality show.
Siddharth is a contestant on “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6”, while Karan is one of the judges along with Madhuri Dixit and Remo D’Souza.
The actor, along with his choreographer Sonia Jaffer did a mix of contemporary and rumba dance forms for the forthcoming fusion episode. They danced to the number “Tere bin main yun kaise jiya”.
The act led Karan to say, “If ‘Jhalak…’ was a movie, you would have been the hero of it. Your personality and charisma has the quality of a hero,” revealed a source from the set.
The filmmaker also said how Siddharth will be noticed on whichever platform he performs, and that he has a hero-like quality in him.
