After a mind boggling Saturday with the wild card contestants giving each other some tough competition, it was time for our Jhalak family to prove themselves again on Sunday. And with the Baadshah of Bollywood amidst them, all the celebrities were absolutely keen to impress him. Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty visited Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa for the promotion of their film Chennai Express.
To start with, has anyone seen an adorable Charlie Chaplin lately? Yes, Lauren Gottleib and Punit Pathak’s Bollywood combined with Broadway act was the epitome of beauty on stage! This duo did exactly what they always do, which is setting the stage on fire! Lauren’s expressions as she imitated Charlie Chaplin combined with Punit’s smart choreography stole the show. The judges were spellbound and SRK was very impressed with their performance. They scored 28 on 30. Following them was a Bollywood performance on all things SRK by Siddharth and Sonia. With a choreographer who knows what suits her celebrity, and a celebrity who is evidently very hardworking and earnest, this performance was an entertaining act for one and all. This pair scored 24 on 30.
And then was a beautiful Freestyle and Paso Doble performance by the duo in disguise. Seriously, does anyone have a problem in recognizing Shaan on stage sometimes? Marischa’s out of the world conceptualization and Shaan’s enthusiasm was the perfect combination to win hearts. This couple scored 27. Up next was an Acrobia and Contemporary act by Drashti and Salman, which was amazingly choreographed and performed. Other than the technicality, which was the way Drashti performed this act by kneeling on a moving bamboo with bruised knees, what really pulled it off was her attitude and her expressions. This performance was the kind that takes one into a different world, an Egyptian world. That wouldn’t have been possible without the right attitude and confidence to be able to pull it off. They grabbed the only 30 on 30 for the episode.
A dance form like Garba is for an energetic group dance. Karanvir and Sneha did just that with a Garba and Bharatnatyam performance. It was nice and different to have an entirely Indian act on stage and with good choreography too. They scored 25 on 30. Following them were the two starlets of the Jhalak family, Sumanth and Sonali. With an extremely energetic Freestyle performance, Sumanth and Sonali were loved and cheered by everyone. The pair scored 27 on 30.
It was time for elimination, with Shweta Tiwari and Aarti Chhabria competing with each other in Jaan Ke Liye Dance. Shweta Tiwari was eliminated.
The last performance of the day was Aarti and Cornel’s slow and dreamy performance. Their Freestyle and Waltz act was a light hearted and romantic performance to watch, and the duo scored 24 on 30.
With SRK and Madhuri’s Dil Toh Pagal Hai and Devadas chemistry, Rohit Shetty’s calm presence and ofcourse, our amazing Jhalak family and the lovely new entries, this week was Housefull with entertainment and dance. The challenge for the next week is Filmy masala, which we all are looking forward to as Bolly lovers and Jhalak lovers!
