Former cricketer S Sreesanth has had tough luck since last year. From receiving a life ban for spot-fixing in IPL 6, to now being out of celebrity dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" season 7, this pace bowler doesn't have his mojo set right.
Despite delivering some of the best performances, Sreesanth and his choreo partner Sneha, fell into the danger zone. He sure impressed the judges but couldn't really win a loyal audience for him on the show.
The cricketer was reportedly miffed as there was an unannounced change in the order of performances and his face-off act against Puja Banerjee too wasn't appreciated by the judges.
"When judges, choreographer Remo D'souza and actor Madhuri Dixit, pointed out his flaws and said that he didn't perform up to the mark, Sreesanth almost got into an argument with them, harping on the point that he believes that he did quite well. To not let matters go out of hand, Karan Johar even said that he wouldn't like to make any comment about his dancing skills. Sree then went backstage and stormed out of the sets," Hindustan Times quoted a source.
Upset and disappointed with the feedback, Sreesanth reportedly left the set and refused to sit through the shoot of the rest of the segment.
Sreesanth has had a delightful scoreboard at the show, and was also considered as one of the strongest contenders. But, the audience failed to show any interest in his acts. While, his opening act was based on parkour and was very well received by the set viewers, what he followed it with dampened the promises he showed in his maiden performance. He has been consistent but has repeatedly missed the mark somewhere.
Sreesanth was handed a life ban by BCCI in 2013 for his alleged involvement in a spot-fixing scandal. He was playing for Shilpa Shetty Kundra owned IPL team Rajasthan Royals.
