Dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa" will witness a few extraordinary performances this weekend by the wild card contestants.
While Rahul Vaidya, Kushal Punjabi, RJ Malishka, Tara-Jean Popowich and Kainaat Arora still have their chances of sealing a spot on the show, playback singer Akriti Kakkar had to quit owing to an injury during the dress rehearsals.
While "Indian Idol" fame Rahul Vaidya was seen pretty kicked about 'Jhalak" rehearsals on Twitter, "Grand Masti" actress Kainaat Arora was busy rooting for her choreographer on the micro blogging site.
"And y am I up so early? Because it's Jhalak shoot day 2day & if I qualify I have 2 back to back performances.Need ur wishes.@JhalakOnColors," tweeted TV star Kushal Punjabi.
"To be honest I love Jhalak and this is my favourite show. I have always enjoyed the level of performance here. Though I have participated in reality shows before, but getting a chance to participate in Jhalak is an overwhelming experience for me. It's a prime time TV show on the weekend and has all the ingredients of a blockbuster. There is dance, a fair jury, glamour and a lot of entertainment. I will try my level best to impress the judges with my performance and hope to get selected," said Punjabi in an interview with The Times Of India.
While the small screen hero looks prepared and set to take on the contestants, Popowich, winner of "So You Think You Can Dance Canada" season 2, isn't far behind. Having won a dance show earlier, a confident Popowich promises her fans that she would work hard to win the trophy.
"Thank you ! your kind words truly mean a lot to me :) I love India! I promise to work as hard as I possibly can @ColorsTV @JhalakOnColors," she tweeted.
The stage is set and curtains ready to be drawn, "Jhalak" will churn a super entertaining weekend with some of the most mind blowing performances. While Punjabi and Popowich are being pitted against one another, the latter seems to have an edge. Having won a dance competition earlier, Popowich has the necessary skills to win the much-discussed "Jhalak" trophy.
