The much awaited dance based reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 9’ is all set to begin next weekend. The show is creating a lot buzz lately not just because of the contestants but also because of the judges.
‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 9’ will mark the small screen debut of actress Jacqueline Fernandez. Indeed, the audience is quite thrilled for the ninth season of the show.
As the preparations of the show are going on in full swing, here comes a bad news.
Actor Arjun Bijlani, who will be seen as a contestant in the upcoming ninth season of ‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa’, got injured while rehearsing on the set of the dance reality show.
Reportedly, during the rehearsals of his performance, Arjun landed on his pelvic bone and got hurt. The doctors have advised him to take rest for a week.
"No one wants to get injured by choice. While practising, I fell and got hurt," Arjun who was recently seen on the popular daily soap ‘Naagin’, said in a statement.
It's not just Arjun who had to visit a doctor. His choreographer Bhawna Khanduja, who fell ill earlier, had to be taken to a doctor as well.
"Bhawna is one of the hardest working individuals I have seen. The girl is always on the go, coming up with new steps so that our performance can stand out from the rest. Recently she wasn't keeping well, but she still wanted to continue with the rehearsals," Arjun said.
"It was a Herculean task for us to convince her to take some time off. Compared to me, Bhawna's determination to take home the 'Jhalak' trophy is much stronger. I just hope that I will be able to match her enthusiasm sufficiently through my performance," he added.
Apart from Arjun, the Colors show will also feature actors Sidhanth Gupta, Shantanu Maheswari, Surveen Chawla, Karishma Tanna, Helly Shah and Shakti Arora.
