Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 has not managed to be the show we will wait every weekend. Last season was more fun thanks to Karan Johar and Shahid Kapoor’s banter. But this season has been quite a slow starter and is yet make a huge mark. But since it is our job to keep you updated on what happened on the show, here’s what happened today.
#Nora Fatehi, one from the bottom three, used contemporary dance on Apsara to win over the judges. She was absolutely remarkable in the performance. No wonder she got a perfect 30.
#Next up was Surveen Chawla, another member of bottom three, who did Afro dance on Muqabla and it was spectacular and she got 27.
#Salman Yusuf Khan followed next and proved why he is the best that Jhalak has. His Sufi-freestyle was just WOW! But judges gave him just 27.
#Later Arjun Bijalni, another bottom 3 member, performed Robotics on a Bhojpuri song. It wasn’t a great act but the bizarre fusion really worked for us. Even judges thought so and gave him 25.
#It was time for Ganesh Hedge, Jacqueline Fernandez and Manish Paul make Karan Johar do Kathak on Ladki Kar Gayi Chull. It was really hilarious.
#Oh almost forgot, Sushant Singh Rajput made a blink and you miss appearance in the show in between all that. No clue why he even was there. He did a few activities and just left.
#Shantanu danced on Jhingat which was not what we are used to seeing him do. It wasn’t as great. Manish and Santanu later try to fight over Jacqueline’s affection. But while we found the act just about average, judges couldn’t stop raving about it and gave him a perfect 30.
#Shakti Arora’s garba on Bhangra was the best act we saw. It wasn’t perfect but it will definitely leave a smile on your face. He got a 27.
#A badly ingested brand placement followed next where Karishma gifts her partner a mobile phone. It was perhaps the worse product placement ever! Such an Argghhhh!
#Karishma Tanna then went for Bharatnatyam on a Gujarati folk song. It was pretty act and we are sure you have loved it. A 29 for her wasn’t surprising.
#Elimination drama begins next where Manish called everyone in danger on stage. Since it is a double elimination episode, two people exited the show. First was Arjun Bijlani, the Naagin actor who gave an emotional speech. Shakti Arora gets in top 5. Nora Fatehi is safe too which meant Surveen Chawla has been shown the door.
