A lot is being said and written about the shocking eliminations from "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8" and it might have caused the dance reality show a considerable loss.
According to a Bollywood Life report, the BARC (Broadcast Audience Research Council) ratings of "Jhalak Reloaded" are not impressive despite having Shahid Kapoor on board.
Also, the ouster of Radhika Madan and Vivian Dsena has perhaps made a fierce impact on the show's popularity.
Both the TV stars enjoy loyal fan bases. And soon after each of them were eliminated, fans took to social media to express their disgust over the matter.
Here are some tweets:
Amna Pal: @JhalakOnColors totally unfair elimination. U really think her fan following is that low. @radhikamadan01 #WeWantRadhikaBackInJhalak
Zainab Abid: @JhalakOnColors @radhikamadan01 Fake Jhalak ever. we 'll never watch jhalak without our Radzz. #WeWantRadhikaBackInJhalak
saddam hussain: No Radhika no jhalak #WeWantRadhikaBackInJhalak @ColorsTV @JhalakOnColors Go to hell Jhalak
Nita: Don't be so cheap @JhalakOnColors It was just so sad how radhika was eliminated last night! No more #Jhalak #WeWantRadhikaBackInJhalak
Sadia Nazmin: No_Vivian_No_Jhalak # injustice_to_viviandsena # courrupted_judges no celebraty is desrved to be winner # hate_jhalak
Vivian Dsena: Our fight will live along untill we got injustice colors channel have to apologize to vd and vdians #InjusticeToVivianDsena
Boycott ColorsTv: #InjusticeToVivianDsena being a non dancer he worked very hard n z showing gr8 imprvmnt in each n evry perfmnce n diz z d result u given him
In other news, the other reason why "Jhalak" may not have a shining TRP ratings card is because the judges have been way too lenient this time around praising every performance and marking each contestant well.
Also, the comic overload doesn't seem to be working in the show's favour and could be one of the reasons why it is failing. A-list stars have visited the show to promote their films but that too reportedly failed to do much.
