Malaika ‘The Munni’ To Judge ‘Jhalak Dikh La Ja’
Malaika Arora Khan
Malaika, ‘The Munni’ will be judging the next season of ‘Jhalak Dikh La Ja’, along with dancing queen, Madhuri Dixit and famous choreographer Remo D’ Souza. She has stepped in as the third celebrity judge, previously it was speculated that Saroj Khan would be the third one.
Confirming the news, Malaika says, “The format of the show is excellent and something I always adored. I lapped up the offer immediately because you rarely get an opportunity to share a platform with Madhuri Dixit, who epitomizes dance. Also I had the dates required for the show. Everything worked out beautifully.”
It was even rumored that Shahid Kapoor was approached for being the judge in the show and he declined the offer because of his scheduled movie dates.
Malaika also compares ‘Zara Nach Ke Dikha’ and ‘Jhalak Dikh La Ja’ and she says, “I’ve been on Zara Nachke Dikha’s first season and Nach Baliye too. Those were diverse formats. Jhalak... is a different format. I love its Indian version as well as the western. Here, the emphasis is on searching for a celebrity who can pull off as many dance forms as convincingly as possible.”
The show will be aired from December 12 on Sony Entertainment Channel, ‘KBC’ grand finale episode will be aired on December 9, and it will have Madhuri Dixit as the main guest.
