Thus, making the channel not only the #2 player but also the leader in weekend programming in the HGE category. On the heels of the success of Khatron Ke Khiladi, the No. 1 non-fiction show of the year 2022, it gives us great pleasure to bring back one of our most celebrated and innovative dance shows, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. 

She further added, "In the past, the show has enjoyed immense popularity and remained a viewer and advertisers’ favourite. We are delighted to welcome Patanjali Dantkanti as the presenting sponsor and Mutual Funds Sahi Hai as the special partner for the show, and look forward to a great partnership."

The new season promises to increase the entertainment quotient with exceptional acts and performances.

It beautifully traces the dance journeys of various celebrities, turning them into life-changing experiences. It is my absolute delight to be back on the judges' panel, reunite with Karan and Maniesh, and welcome the very talented Nora Fatehi. For us and contestants alike, it is going to be a joyful and fulfilling ride marked by some exceptional and unforgettable dance performances."

Some of the industry’s biggest and most popular names are going to explore the realm of dance this season, and I cannot wait to witness their journeys."
