Malaika Judging Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa

Once again Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa is back into action again soon after Kaun Banega Crorepati 4 featuring Amitabh Bachchan wraps up the show on December 9. As it has been already reported that Dhak-2 queen, Madhuri Dixit is judging the show, and now one more surprise for you guys! Munni, Malaika Arora Khan is now stepping into judging along with Madhuri Dixit and Remo D’Souza.

Apparently, Malaika has replaced Shahid Kapoor who was earlier approached for the show. 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.”

Comparing her experience on other celebrity oriented dance reality shows, the actress says that the level of competition is different on different shows. Malaika 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.”

When asked from whether her step mother-in-law and veteran dancer, Helen will introduce her on the show, she said,

“If Helen aunty is introducing me on the show, I’ll consider myself to be a privileged soul. She’s another epitome of dance and elegance.”
