MUMBAI: Colors popular dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has always given popular stars a platform to debut on TV as a judge. Madhuri Dixit being the biggest example, who was a part of the Jhalak panel for three years.

To focus on other projects, Dixit has decided to take a break from the show this year. Replacing her will be critically acclaimed actor and dancer, Shahid Kapoor as a judge on the show.

Kapoor will take viewers on a whirlwind journey of his dance roots that have been instrumental in catapulting his acting career as well.

Colors CEO Raj Nayak believes that television has become the primary choice of engagement for the film industry with its reach and direct audience connect making it centre stage for mainstream popular entertainment. 

He said, “At Colors, we have a legacy of providing the perfect platform to the biggest names from the film industry like Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor , Akshay Kumar, Rohit Shetty , Anupam Kher  Priyanka Chopra , Madhuri Dixit-Nene etc among others, to move one step closer to their viewers through interactive and engaging formats. We are excited to welcome Kapoor to the Colors family through his TV debut as judge on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa; on the back of the box-office success of his latest films, with the most recent feather on his cap by bagging the top honours at IIFA.”

Kapoor added, “When I first took up dancing, I had the privilege to work closely with some great mentors who not only honed my dance skills, but also helped me to shape my personality. As I join the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa family as its judge, I am looking forward to share my learnings and experience with the contestants. Being a dancer brought discipline to my life and changed it completely; I’m now hoping to transfer some of the knowledge towards shaping the young and talented choreographers in our country.”

“Kapoor’s appeal is enormous across age groups, especially amongst youth who take inspiration from his career graph from being a dancer to becoming one of today’s most sought after actors. His understanding of dance is unparalleled and his contribution to Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa will enable us to raise the bar of entertainment that the show brings to viewers year-after-year. Having said that, we would also like to thank Madhuri Dixit-Nene for being the ultimate connoisseur of Jhalak; this journey would not have been possible without her.”

As per sources close to the development, the show is going on floors from 29 June and will go on-air in July.
