New Delhi: The popular dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa’ is all set to come back with its ninth season. For quite a while now, there have been rumours doing the rounds about the celebrity contestants who will be part of the show.
Though, now we have the confirmed list of eight out of 12 contestants who will set the dance floor on fire. The show team recently did a promo shoot and officially revealed the names of the eight contestants.
Here goes the list.
1. Arjun Bijlani
TV actor Arjun Bijlani will be seen electrifying the stage with his performance on Jhalak. He was last seen in hit series ‘Naagin’ in double roles.
2. Surveen Chawla
The small-screen hotty who burnt the celluloid with her sizzling performance in ‘Hate Story 3’ is all set to repeat the magic on the floor of ‘Jhalak Dikkhla Ja’.
3. Gaurav Gera
The famous comedian will be in the required comic elements on the show as he will be participating in his ‘Chutki’ avatar. It means no dearth of ‘Shopkeeper’ jokes.
4. Shakti Arora
‘Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’ fame Shakti Arora is also part of the dance reality show. He is best known for playing the role of Jigar in Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Dr. Onir Dutt in Pavitra Rishta.
5. Helly Shah
Popular television bahu Swara (from Swaragini) is part of the show too. As audiences are aware of her ‘sansakari’ avatar, it would be interesting to see her going ‘rock n roll’
6. Karishma Tanna
The leggy lass who was last seen in Bigg Boss will make a comeback in mainstream reality shows with Jhalak. She can prove out to be one of the strongest contestants considering her talent and experience.
7. Harpal Singh Sokhi
Harpal Singh Sokhi is a celebrity chef known as the ‘Energy Chef’ of India. He has worked with multiple hotel and restaurant chains, before launching his own chain – the The Funjabi Tadka in 2013. Let’s see if he has the perfect recipe for dance as well.
8. Priyanka and Poonam Shah
These Bharatnatyam/Hip-Hop fusion dancing twins are YouTube sensations. It is going to be a big break for them as they have been roped in to be a part of the show. Though, it is yet to be seen whether they will cash-in the opportunity.
