Even as "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9" is all set to hit screens from July 30; the shooting for the dance reality show has been going on in full swing. While the grand opening episode will not see any eviction, the viewers will be shocked to witness three popular celebrities in the danger zone in the second episode.
It was reported that Helly Shah, Arjun Bijlani and Gaurav Gera failed to woo the audience and the judges, thereby scoring the lowest among all the contestants. And now, the first contestant who has been eliminated from the show has been revealed.
Rumour has it that Gaurav, popular as Chutki from "Shopkeepaa (Shopkeeper) and Chutki" series, has been eliminated, India Forums reported. The actor-comedian's dance act couldn't live up to the judges and the audience's expectation, resulting in him scoring the lowest.

However, fans of Arjun and Helly can heave a sigh of relief as both of them have got another chance to showcase their dancing skills and continue their journey on the show.
Although Gaurav's stint on the show was short, fans of the stand-up comedian, will get to see two of his dance performances on the show.
Meanwhile, it had been reported that Siddharth Nigam, who portrayed the role of young Ashoka on "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat," would enter the show as the first wild card contestant.
