New Delhi: Irfan Pathan will be seen shaking a leg in “Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Reloaded.” What is more commendable than seeing him dance is that he will donate whatever he earns on this show to his cricket academy.
The Pathan brothers, Irfan and Yusuf Pathan run a joint foundation for underprivileged kids under the name of Cricket Academy of Pathans. This self-funded project is the dream project of the star cricketers who wish to bring a change in lives of the less fortunate.
"It is a self funded project where we help under-privileged children... coach them, give them equipments and other things. So whatever funding I get from here, we will use it there.” says Irfan.
Talking about how he signed up for his show he mentions, "This is off season of cricket so I thought of taking up this new challenge. I will be able to learn one or two moves."
Actress Shamita Shetty, actor Ashish Chowdhry, child artist Faisal Khan, Sanaya Irani, Vivian Dsena, Radhika Madan, Kavita Kaushik, Mohit Malik, Deepika Samson, Subhreet Kaur, rapper Raftaar and Scarlett Wilson are the other contestants of this dance reality show.
Irfan who will be a wild card entrant will definitely face stiff competition from them as they have already built a fan base. However, it will be worth seeing how this all rounder mesmerizes with his off-field performance.
