Dance-based television reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" season 5 has returned to small screen again with power-packed performances from all 12 contestants.

On Saturday, contestants rocked the dance floor at the opening of the season five episode. While the show has revealed the identity of all 12 contestants, there has been buzz that the show this time has a 13th contestant whose identity will be revealed on Sunday's episode.

However, there are rumors that Bihar-based computer teacher Sushil Kumar, who created history last year by winning Rs. 50 million (INR 5 crore) in Kaun Banega Crorepati season five, will be the surprise 13th contestant of the dance reality show.  

On Sunday's episode, Madhuri Dixit, one of the judges on the show, will be seen introducing him as "a common man who achieved fame with the help of people themselves."

"Sushil has accepted the 'Jhalak' challenge with great support from his family who hope to see a whole new side to his intellectual personality. Training him on all types of international dance forms will be his choreographer, Alisha," according to Colors.  

"Sushil is a huge fan of actor and fellow contestant, Ravi Kishan and is hoping to share some small-screen space with him as well."

The show is being judged by Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo Fernandez.

The participants include Gurmeet Chowdhary, Bharati Singh, Archana Vijaya, Jayati Bhatia, Giaa Manek, Rupal Patel, Pratyusha, Isha Shervani, Shibani Dandekar, and Cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya, child artist Darsheel Safary, Ravi Kishan and Talat Aziz.
