Colors acquires ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, signs Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri Dixit
MUMBAI: Popular dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa", which aired on entertainment channel Sony since 2006, has now been acquired by Colors, which has already signed up dancing diva Madhuri Dixit as one of the judges for the upcoming season of the celebrity-based show.

The show, inspired by international show "Dancing With The Stars", saw Madhuri on the judges’ panel in its fourth season too. But that time, she was busy travelling between India and the US, where her family – her husband, and two kids – was then settled.

The actress has now shifted base back to India, and is expected to be more relaxed on the sets as she doesn’t have to think of travelling far away after every shooting schedule, said a source.

The upcoming season on Colors will get a ‘colourful’ makeover too, and the channel hopes to give it a metamorphosis in terms of style and look.

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" has so far gone through four seasons. It features celebrities and well-known faces, who train with professional dance partners and perform various styles of dancing. The judges panel usually consists of three, but the other two judges are yet to be formally announced.

Chances are choreographer-director Remo D’Souza will also be seen as a repeat on the panel this season.
