Bharti Singh approached to host; Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and Remo Dsouza to judge Jhalak season 6



Tellychakkar.com wrote about Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa (BBC Worldwide) coming soon with its next season on Colors.

And now we have learnt that Bharti Singh (who came in as a contestant in season 5) has been approached to host the upcoming season.

However, we are yet to receive a confirmation on the same as Bharti remained out of reach when we tried to get more info from her.

Moving on, the channel has also decided to put up a same judging scene in the coming season and accordingly, has given a shout out to Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and Remo D’souza.

Therefore, Jhalak season 6 will see a lot of familiar faces.

We shall keep an eye on further developments!!!

Lauren Gottlieb a part of Jhalak?

Lauren might be a part of the dance reality show; last year's panel of judges retained for Jhalak.

The seasons might change, but the judges' panel will remain the same. Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 will have the same panel of judges — Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Karan Johar and Remo D'Souza — that it had the last season.

When we contacted Remo, he said, "Yes it is true. We are coming together once again." Ask him if it will be difficult judging the Hindi and Bengali version together, he said, "The national show will go on air in May, by that the Bengali version will get over."

Buzz is also that ABCD's Lauren Gottlieb, who has taught Tom Cruise to dance and matched steps with Rihanna and Shakira, is also a part of the show. When we asked Remo, who also directed ABCD, he said, "The makers of the show are in talks with her. After that I couldn't speak to her as she flew to LA." Will it be difficult for him to judge her, considering she was a part of his film? "Not at all. Salman Yusuff Khan and Punit Pathak had also worked under me, but that did not deter me from judging them fairly."

Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar And Remo D’Souza Are Back On ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6′

After having a super successful fifth season of dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikha Jaa‘, Colors channels have once again zeroed upon Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D’Souza to judge the sixth season of the much popular dance show.

Remo D'Souza, Madhuri Dixit and Karan Johar on the sets of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 5

Although, the channel is yet to make an official announcement, Karan Johar and Madhuri Dixit revealed it through their tweets.

In fact, the judges are all set to shoot the first promo for the reality show today. About JDJ, Karan tweeted, “On my way to shoot the promo of #jhalakdikhlajaa….Remo…Madhuri and myself!!!”

After a while, Madhuri also tweeted about the same. She wrote, “On the sets, having fun shooting for #jhalakdikhlaja with @Remo_dance and @Karan25! So excited!”

(We would like you to make our readers know that Karan Johar’s original twitter id it @kjohar25 and not ‘@Karan25′. Even Remo D’Souza’s id seems to be the fake one. Madhuri Dixit seems to have fallen for an imposter here.)

‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6′ is expected to go on air in the month of June.

Madhuri Dixit's excited about next TV outing!

Madhuri Dixit’s back with a bang. The actress who’s returning to the big screen after a rather long sabbatical is balancing her films, besides being busy with her recently launched dance academy, brand endorsements and her small screen outings.

An insider says, “Professionally, it’s been one of her busiest years and she’s loving every bit of it. These are all projects that she’s very passionate about.” Soon after her return from the Lucknow schedule of Dedh Ishqiya, the actress has plunged into shooting for the next season of Jhalak Dikhlaja. But Mads is not complaining about the non-stop shoots. In fact, she seems to be enjoying the pace and she recently even tweeted, “On the sets, having fun shooting for #jhalakdikhlaja with @Remo_dance and @Karan25! So excited!”

Karan-Remo’s dostana moment

The next season of Colors' 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' will see not just the participants dance, but also the judges. Just the other day the trio — Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Remo D'Souza — had a lot of fun while rehearsing for the number '1, 2 Cha Cha Cha'.

And while KJo and Remo were practising their steps, Madhuri could not control her laughter and kept pulling their legs. At one point, Remo and Karan had to hold each other while Madhuri showed them the nuances of the dance form. It was during this dostana, when Madhuri burst out laughing and made the other two conscious as well. The three were so uncontrollable after a while, that they had to take several takes in order to just get one shot right with the on-going laughter riot on sets.

Said Madhuri, "I'm doing cha-cha for the first time and enjoying the experience. And the fact that Karan is dancing is even more intriguing. I'm sure the audiences are going to love this combo".

Madhuri Dixit-Nene, is shedding her traditional avatar. She has decided instead to sport a sexy, glamorous one in the upcoming dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Here (see picture alongside)is a sneak peek at what she will be wearing in the promo of the show wearing a bright red flamenco dress with a thigh-high slit.

The jury is still out on whether its flattering but must say it’s a vast improvement from the outfits she sported last year, which incidentally, were designed by her former secretary Rikku Rakeshnath’s daughter Shaina. This time Madhuri has roped in fashion designer Gavin Miguel to dress her outfit for the promo.

Sources say that she will be sporting different designer outfits in every episode of the show and experimenting with her looks like never-before. Says Madhuri, “I’m wearing this flamenco style outfit for the first time and it’s beautiful. It has this gorgeous detailing and goes really well with the western touch that we’re trying to bring in the promos of Jhalak. I hope the audiences like it!”

The next season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is much-awaited due to the presence of Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D'Souza. As many as 13 contestants will try their luck to win the show.
Come May, popular dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaaa is going to be back with a new season on Colors channel, with actor Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-turned director Remo D’Souza as judges. The promo shoots have recently concluded, and a source from the set
says that the trio is so excited to be back on the show that they immediately hit it off like a house on fire. The fun and laughter quotient was so high that it took 20 takes to complete the first promo.

“Remo, who was choreographing the promo came up with a signature step for the shoot which reminded Karan and Madhuri of Mogambo and his signature style. With every take, the three were seen cracking up when it was time to do that particular signature step,” says the source. Adding to this was the promo line they all had to say — ‘Dance ka mazza ab hum chakhaenge’.

Meanwhile, popular playback singer Shaan has been roped in as the first contestant for Jhalak Dikhla Ja 6.

Karan, Madhuri and Remo do an Amar Akbar Anthony

Celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is set for a comeback with a fresh season on Colors. Preparations are on in full swing with the show's promos being shot with the judges — Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and Remo D'Souza in a hatke style. The new set of promotional videos will have the trio literally stepping into Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Vinod Khanna's shoes, dancing to the tunes of the popular title song of Amar Akbar Anthony.

Excited about dancing on Anhoni ko honi karde song for the first time, Johar says, "It's a great feeling to be dancing on a song as popular as this and we literally are doing some anhoni things on the show this time! We hope the audiences like our anokha dance as well." The song has been sung by singer Jaspreet Kohli and is choreographed by Remo D'Souza. Meanwhile the trio, which teamed up for the first time on Jhalak... in its last season, seem to have bonded really well. Their camaraderie was quite evident at the promo shoot of the cha-cha based promotional number that D'Souza had choreographed. Surprisingly, it took them 20 retakes to get the steps right. On a comic note, Dixit found those steps similar to Mr. India's Mogambo steps and the duo (Dixit and Johar) could not control the laughter till the last take! If they are so entertaining during the promos, we wonder what would they be like on the actual episodes.

Sushant Singh Rajput and Drashti Dhami

Colors’ Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa – Season 6 is all set to be a grand affair with not just Ranbir Kapoor but also Dharmendra and Sunny Deol being a part of its first episode.

Yes, the latest is that Dharmendra and Sunny Deol will be on the sets to promote their upcoming film Yamala Pagla Deewana 2 while Ranbir will promote his and Deepika Padukone-starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

The episode turned out to be a memorable one as Sunny did not miss the opportunity of dancing with Madhuri Dixit, one of the judges of the show.

This was not the end to all the masti on the sets as the funny boys Ranbir Kapoor, Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma danced on the famous Raj Kapoor number Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua. Their act made one and all break out in splits.

Furthermore, the Kai Po Che! star Sushant Singh Rajput also shook a leg with the gorgeous contestant Drashti Dhami.

The coming season of Jhalak seems to be quite tempting.

The show will start airing from 1 June, 2013.

Madhuri feeling nervous to perform with Birju Maharaj

Actress Madhuri Dixit, who would be performing with noted classical dancer Birju Maharaj, feels honoured that she would dance with him but is nervous at the same time.

The legendary Kathak guru and his disciple will soon be seen in a special jugalbandi act on the dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'.

"I am happy and honoured that I will be dancing with him in 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. I am afraid...Getting butterflies in my stomach. I am nervous if I would be able to match up to him. I will treasure this moment," Madhuri told reporters here at the launch of the show.

The two will perform together for the first time on television.

The classical dancer choreographed Madhuri's songs in Devdas (2002) and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), and recently did a song for her upcoming film 'Dedh Ishqiya'.

Meanwhile, Madhuri said she is excited to judge yet another season of 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'.

"I like the show as it brings out interesting journey of contestants. I think anyone can dance but it is important to put your heart and soul for a performance," she said.

The show will go on air from June 1. The other two judges will be Remo D'Souza and Karan Johar.

"This season, the competition will be more as we have interesting range of contestants. I will judge them on the basis of entertainment," Karan said.

The opening episode will see Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol shaking a leg with the contestants to promote their film 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2'.

"Dharamji has a unique style of dancing and he is best at it. No one can dance the way he does," Karan said.

Madhuri will team up with Ranbir Kapoor to perform on the item number 'Ghagra' from the film 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'.

"He (Ranbir) is a talented actor and a very good dancer. He is energetic and I had (a) blast dancing with him," Madhuri said.

Madhuri: I want to take dance to every person in the world

Madhuri Dixit is excited about returning as the judge in the next season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, the popular dance reality TV show.

"I like the show as it brings out the interesting journey of contestants. Anyone can dance but it is important to put your heart and soul into a performance," Madhuri says. The show will premiere on June 1 on Colors.

Madhuri chats about the show, her upcoming movies, and how she still looks so gorgeous.

For the opening episode of Jhalak..., you will perform the item number Ghagra from the film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir Kapoor. What was it like working with him in the film and on TV?

Ranbir is a talented actor and a very good dancer. The kind of energy he gets on the floor is wonderful. I had a blast dancing with him.

What was it like being teamed with noted classical dancer Birju Maharaj in a special act on Jhalak? (He choreographed her songs in Devdas, Dil To Pagal Hai and for her upcoming film Dedh Ishqiya)

I am happy and honoured that I will be dancing with him in Jhalak. I am getting butterflies in my stomach. I am nervous about being able to match up to him. I will treasure this moment.

You have recorded a song with your mother Snehlata Dixit in your upcoming movie Gulab Gang...

They wanted a voice for a particular sequence, not a proper song. A couple of instruments play in the background and they wanted an actress -- me -- to break into the song. They wanted to make it realistic, so when the director asked me, I thought about it and agreed.

How did you convince your mother?

Actually, I tricked my mother (laughs). I just told her to come along as I was recording. The artistic talent what I have is because of my mother. She is interested in music. She had four children but still managed to do a Masters degree in Vocal Hindustani Music.

She couldn't learn dance but made her daughters learn it. All those things we have got from her.

I quietly took her along and asked her to sing one line for me. She sang and I was like 'Mom, you have made your debut at 80!' (laughs).

How did your children react when they saw you dance to Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani?

The first time they saw the song on TV, they came running to me and said 'Mom, you are on TV'. They are still innocent and don't understand it fully. But they were happy that their mother is on TV.

We have not seen a dancing actor like you.

That is your thought (smiles) but I don't endorse it completely. Everybody has their own personality on screen

You have lost weight and look fit and gorgeous. Was that for a role in any film?

I have lost weight to keep myself healthy.

Second, I have to be seen on screen, and I have to be slim because the screen adds a lot of weight.

Third, in this profession, you have to look after yourself because I have to dance and be fit.

So how do you keep fit?

What you eat is very important. Eat healthy. A workout is very important. I workout or dance for an hour.

I don't starve but I believe in a good balanced diet. I have five small meals in a day, each meal after every three hours.

What is new in this season of Jhalak?

We have associated Jhalak with my online dance academy, Dance with Madhuri. On Jhalak, they will teach seven steps every week. You can learn and upload the steps from my website.

If someone is good, s/he gets a reward. The better ones get to come on the show, while the really good ones will get a chance to dance with me.

This season it's not only for the celebrities but also for the aam janta (ordinary folk).

What is that one dance form that you wish to learn?

I want to learn tap dancing. During the Stardust awards, we added a few elements of tap dancing. But when I see Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, I feel I should have learnt this also.

Is there any international reality show that you watch?

I like American Idol. I love the singers who come on the show.

Can you talk a bit about your production house?

Under our banner, we have formed an online dance academy. Right now we are working on it to make it more comprehensive and getting more styles into it with different choreographers and gurus.

I think everybody should be able to dance and be exposed to these gurus who have so much talent.

I want to take dance to every person in the world.

It's a stress buster and keeps you fit and just gives you joy. We try and make it easy for everyone to learn at leisure. We want to bring different dance forms, be it classical, western or Bollywood style, under one roof.

How was it working with Juhi Chawla in Gulaab Gang?

She is a very good actress herself and we have very nice scenes together. I enjoyed working in the film.

Any dance based film that you have liked in recent times?

ABCD is a good attempt by Remo D'Souza (choreographer-director). I loved the dance in the movie and it's innovative.

What kind of movies are you interested in?


I found the two roles in Gulaab Gang and Dedh Ishqiya interesting. If I get something challenging, I would love to do it.

Madhuri Dixit matches steps with Birju Maharaj on 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'


The 'guru' and 'shishya' pair will be seen portraying the Indian classical dance form – Kathak in its purest and finest form dancing to the tunes of 'Piya toh se', 'Madhuban mein' and the famous folklore 'Dhai shyam rok lai'.

An overwhelmed and nervous Madhuri says, "I was six years old when I first saw Birju Ji performing. It’s a very special occasion for me today that I am dancing with Maharaj Ji and I want to say that I feel his art is as never ending as a rainbow and if I follow it I will find treasure one day. Birju ji has given a new meaning to this Jhalak manch and I would want to encourage more youngsters to learn classical dance forms."

The mentor-disciple duo also share a close family bond and Panditji even teaches Madhuri’s children the tabla. Maharaji nevertheless was glad to share the stage with Madhuri and showed his love and affection for his beloved student by saying how proud he was of his quick learner and dedicated student.

Pandit Birju Maharaj has earlier choreographed the actress for many of her movies like 'Devdas' and 'Dil to Pagal Hai'. This historic moment that was the perfect epitome of grace and elegance left Karan Johar and Remo stunned.
