After a successful season of the once hit game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, Sony TV has another coup lined up its sleeve. The channel has finally managed to bring back one of the most popular Bollywood Divas to the Indian television. Sources reveal that Madhuri Dixit has agreed to judge the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Ja for the channel. Bollywood’s dancing queen Madhuri Dixit is back in business as one of the judges of the fourth season of dance reality show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Choreographer Remo D’Souza will also join her as one of the three judges on the show. “It took us one-and-a-half-year to convince her to come here. Thanks to Rikkuji (Madhuri’s secretary Rakesh Nath), she is now here. She has left her family in the US for the show and we are very grateful that she has made it on board”, said Ajit Thakur, executive vice president and business head of Sony TV. So what does Mads have to say about her reintroduction to TV? Madhuri says, “In the past, I have done ‘Kahin Na Kahin Koi Hai’ with Sony TV and I hope you all like ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ now. It is an exciting show, and all the participating celebrities are not professional dancers. It would be great to see them dancing and competing.” Madhuri is a natural choice for the show as she is known to be one of the best dancers in the Indian film industry. Her hit numbers like “Ek do teen”, “Humo aajkal hai” etc still make the feet tap and the body groove to her signature moves. Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4 is said to be inspired by international show Dancing With The Stars and is being produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. The show will go on air Dec 12, replacing Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 2010’. The show is being launched on a much bigger scale this year. The technicians were actually sent to London to the sets of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ to see how the lighting and sets are done, so that they could absorb the technology. There will be 12 celebrities this time. The names of these celebrities (and the third jude) have not yet been made public by the channel. It seems that Sony TV has finally realized that it needs to be strong on its reality shows to stay in business and compete with Colors and Star Plus. Good Luck to the channel!
