Jhalak – Is it turning into a Circus???

 So it is the way I felt this weekend with the way Jhalak episode unfolded. It was very inconsistent from the word “Go” …and it left many perplexing queries in my mind and the audience was left feeling short changed.
Now I do have a choice to change the channel and see something worthwhile or do something more fruitful with my time and if this continues maybe I will exercise that choice but till few stars that I subscribe to are there I would want to see what they do and maybe drink in my FANDOM …besides some episodes were fun and so the lure continues…but it is increasingly leaving a distaste and discontent in the mind …with loving moments few and far between…
And so I will express my displeasure in the form of queries…rhetorical queries for definitely no one shall answer them and no one might pay heed to it but I still feel hopeful that if someone from Jhalak house looks for some helpful feedback at some point of time then well the blog might be helpful to them…
The Show began with a whacky announcement that Shahid has gone to Jupiter to promote Jhalak…hmm...why do we not promote it in India or at least make it available on this globe everywhere …I see so many fans commenting and tweeting about the show not available in their country or they not being able to vote for their favourite contestants???
Fans are left feeling helpless and unattended …the very fans who you expect to vote for you...reply to your tweets and be your audience…some efficient treatment they get!!! Only Mohit and Raftaar are sweet in that they honour regularly each fan that tweets to them…

Then we have the Report card moment…Ganesh Hegde believes in giving subjective report cards. Now we are so hoping for him to give concrete advice but he tapers with giving one liners and non-specific instructions and almost skipping few in his enthusiasm…so he asks Raftaar and Faisal to be CONSISTENT …do not get 40 one time and 31 another … hmm …sound advice so far…so general too..
Sanaya and Vivian are called popular celebrities but he asks “is your performance competitive” but he does not wait to let the impact sink in? Now that is where Ganesh lacks the authority of a Maestro whose each word one would hang on and covet the feedback that he gives…
He adroitly skips mentioning Shamita or Subhreet or Irfaan and Ashish completely-is their performance above feedback? Or not mentionable? Or undeserving of praise or beyond praise or he failed to just assess them? He admonishes Mohit for not getting full 40 yet and all in all he did not really add to our repertoire of information on contestants performances…we and they already knew it.
The only thing that was noteworthy was his announcement that there will be double elimination…hmm that was a surprise and another unhappy announcement from Irfan Pathan that he would be leaving the show on professional reasons. Well we had just about started to have fun with him on the sets. 
His act was cute and quite fun to watch and there were some lovely lifts. They succeeded in bringing the mischievous element on the stage reminding us of those days when we vigorously played a shot and broke a neighbour's glass window and put the blame innocently on the other...wish Irfan had stayed a little more and served us few more such funky moments...


Could the double elimination not be avoided? Why were they in a hurry to shed contestants? Maybe Subhreet had to leave for medical reasons as her new Leg would need adjustments and Dancing maybe a strict No No or maybe they just got tired of patronizing her or maybe they just felt that as the show moves to higher difficulty levels she might find it little uncomfortable to gear up with her new companion…whatever their reasons well it looked hurried and little pushed…for she danced without much soul into it...

 HER SMILE was a little strained…though the chaar kadam bus chaar kadam was so apt for her and the moment she went walking to her mother and hugged!!! It was a sweet moment! But since I am in an Acidic mood I cannot help but ask “is this her andaaz?” “Was the theme not andaz apna apna?” She would have done much better as is…

Ashish too was quite not in his element and his arrangement and coordination with backstage guys who handle all the paraphernalia of the harness and stuff simply went haywire…


and it looked fully out of control Act as if the ouster needed to be justified!!! The stone for which they were, striving too fell off.
Ashish did go on to reclaim his energy after the initial hiccups and actually showed promise and energy. Certain parts were pleasant and set a cool tempo but guess it did not measure enough to retain him in…
Raftaar again put in DANGER zone really?? He seems to be such a popular guy and also shares such a wonderful camaraderie with his choreo Sneha…
They both are so adorable and put in a lovely performance with different flavours and moves…they brought in their funky and mischievous andaz and also did a little bit of stunt with style...smiles! There was a bit of goof up by Sneha with the waist cloth however it did not deter them and they marched on with an absolutely winning perfrmance...

when you compare it with the slow and unsteady dance of Subhreet (for obvious reasons) and the messy unfortunate bungle of Ashish …it was natural to retain Raftaar…
He is open hearted enough to  announce graciously  “my name shall stay in your hearts” Yes it will, should you go but I and judges are not yet ready to let you go…gear up and prepare …Your Andaaz was a medley of movements and so symbolises the two of you and your varied happy go lucky attitude throughout…

Shamita too tried to bring in her Sexy Andaz with the immortal sensuous anthem by an equally seductive Diva “Madhuri Dixit”.

 She rendered a brazen sensuality of a maiden out there to seduce her beau with her mature sense of surrender and slow entwining movements inching ever closer to intimacy…
So much can unfold in those few minutes…as a stand-alone Act it would be labelled cute and sweet and well tried. She did look amazing and gorgeous but Comparison is inevitable…and if you get in the comparison lane she fell short of the Mature and the certain movements of the woman out to conquer her love…
Her movements had zest and enthusiasm…what was needed was a kind of certainty and sure movements and expression of a woman…not a girl…but Loved the Act as I said if you view it without the comparison lenses. It would be a little cruel of me to be so critical.
I want to be critical of someone else that too very cryptically and vociferously…someone who feels that he can just about get away with anything…
Many times it is repeated that it is a “family Show” and I even saw people in the audience were sitting with their family members…my Question to Manish Paul “Was it absolutely necessary to throw Lauren on the hay stack and even more imperative to jump on her?” I understand Lauren is a beautiful girl but like really…did it befit the stature of the show??? Let us say he got carried away…were the editors of the show not awake???

What did bring the sweetness back in the show is our Mr. Consistent MOHIT MALIK with his Bhangra…

what I admire is the utmost comfort he enjoys with his choreographer Marischa Fernandes. She looks so cool in whatever attire you give her. She has made him so comfortable that we indeed get to see lovely dance Dos and this time it was Bhangra alright.
They brought a gentle breeze on the stage and kept the energy going. If judges felt it drop a bit...it was only after the performances when Mohit donned his trademark DAZED look…of like ‘did I just do that?’ as soon as his act is over.
He I think cannot get over his own sense of “I cannot dance” feeling and so he resumes his “ever confused expression” But his Mom is so cute. I loved the way Manish touched her feet…now if he does have his manners in place then why does he get carried away???
So typically charming was her appeal to Addie…I want a Grandchild!!! So cute and such a universal demand of every ma-in-law (in India at least)!! Addie you  better listen and I feel no harm in letting a little Handsome replica of mini Mohit or darling Addie baby girl out in this world…do honour her request.
Heeheeheee…it was a genuine moment which definitely could not have been scripted by the show guys and I do request that the Jhalak guys consider more of the “Rajma-Chawal” moments instead of the Circus that this show is fast moving towards!!!
Then the Moment Arrives when Salman Khan makes his grand entry and the show opens to grander tweets making the rounds from morning till the show begins…Sunday was ruled by Khans alright...
One established as the “Sultan of the Film Industry” and another Talented Khan we fans are so Hoping inches there with his overflowing Talent in everything he does…but as yet there are the formal rounds and introduction of the debutantes Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi. We take a moment to wish them ALL THE VERY BEST for their film career and well their Job is half accomplished for they do have Salman Khan himself promoting their talent and the Movie “HERO” under his production; they couldn’t have asked for a better Debut and Platform. I would say it is wiser for them to take the mantle of Production and direction and give an outlet to young talent of the industry.
Manishhhh…I quite enjoyed the Sunil Shetty…You are such a treasure then why do you stoop down to slapstick nonsense…you have tons of healthy humour...do tap into into it and enthral us…we all can do with smiles we can store for the entire week…Your take on Sanaya’s weight is …well…even Sanaya cannot resist giggling over it!!

Sanaya Irani too brought in such a beautiful Charlie Chaplin on the Jhalak stage…

 it was a lovely performance and I share Karan Johar’s opinion…ALL of us grew up admiring Charlie Chaplin from our childhood days…our black and white televisions were adorned by this Gentleman with his silent comico-tragic take on human sagas…what more could we ask for on a Sunday night???
She is a delicate doll with thousands of expressions flitting on and off from her face…and her discomfort with her moustache coming out brought on more giggles for us.
However happy Ganesh maybe and I agree that Sanaya was very cute in her co-ordination with all the props they used …the electric current…the umbrella lift…I still cannot understand that happy happy DANCE…even Sanaya chortled “I cannot quite do that…how to??”
The show does lack that pride derived from Remo D’souza’s “This is it1” which used to come so rarely and it used to be delivered with so much of impact - all silent and powerfully…that it would truly feel well deserved and treasure worthy…
Is the judge side not getting very noisy and crowded and uncoordinated? I remember the judges like MADHURI OR KARAN OR REMO would like very rarely and only when urged by the demand leave their seat and enter the centre stage. Here every judge is like waiting to pounce on the stage as soon as the contestants finish their Act to show their prowess!
There are two different worlds on JHALAK–One side there is a crowd of judges and guests galore vying for limelight and the contestants just about allowed to perform and relegated to their BACKSEATS…not quite allowed much leverage or even speech…only Sanaya allowed to go forth and hug and express her glee…
But yet the contestants are leaving their mark...shining with their talents and leaving me wanting to see more of them...feel more of them…love them…hug them…wipe their tears away …for sometimes the tears cannot be scripted…cannot be created…they fall in CASCADES…especially when they are dedicated to your Mother dear whom you adore and love deeply…a mom with whom your etheric umbilical cord is still intact…a mother whose pain you have felt and transcended…a mother you want to tell simply “I love you” for there are no more words to express that…except MY LOVELY SURREAL SCARLETT…YOUR DANCE WAS A FITTING TRIBUTE TO your love for your Mom…


My Mermaid…my pretty Lassy…my fairy Princess…you were a dream…Passion personified…for it was your genuine effort to tell your mom  a story of how much she means to you…no wonder you broke down at the end of it…
I will treasure the stance of going back to womb...it was so clean and vulnerable…you surrendered to the choreo and the moment, and I surrendered to my tears for I know love that misses and yearns…
I love you my missy...and I so wish Gods Had been kind and lend me a daughter in this life to nurture and care and who would someday tell me so liltingly that she treasures me as much as you did…what a beautiful depiction of paying a loving tribute…your Mom is so lucky…we will not even discuss judge’s comments or any other ones…you were so perfect for me…and I wanted to cuddle you and kiss your final tears away…You performed with such a flourish and form…unparalleled and pure…
After that all the fun that Salman and Karan and Ganesh took us through was like a breaker for me to compose myself in order to be able to carry on my chores of the time as well as go on and watch the show for I was waiting for another favourite to touch my heart…and for some reasons his performance was scheduled last…so I could not abandon the TV SET yet and give free rein to tears after sucha touching treat to my heart…

For a moment there I was brought back with a thud on the ground…we had Vivian trying a tango with his football. 

Neither do I understand Tango much nor football but What I do understand is dance is movements…grace...telling a story…connecting and communicating with your audience and leaving an indelible mark on them…who view you at any point of time…
Vivian and his choreo looked stunning but well again Bhawna ended up giving striking poses for the entire Act and Vivian simply held her with great aplomb…what more can I say? His Fans will lambast me for this feedback as it is at the time of publishing this blog, news is in that VIVIAN has been eliminated in the coming week. His  fans are on a rampage. They had managed to get Him back during the Madhubala show by vociferous and vicious agitations…and they plan to repeat that History for him.
All I can say is I am not commenting on him as a person…only as he performed as a dancer and his journey in Jhalak. I do feel he was improving a little but sliding again into his conscious zone…this particular performance failed to impress…period…
And the angst of the disgruntled fans filtered over to where they think can hit most… Again because I subscribe to this little guy’s fandom I happened to receive few tweets that were extremely derogatory for the child and his family…I have happily blocked those as reporting them yields no result and publishing them here would be in bad taste…on the Star whom I treasure most…
Jhalak guys would have their own reasons for show casing Faisal Khan’s financial condition. The intention is pure which most kids of his age do not have. His tears are not to be misconstrued as drama to grab attention. His talent more than speaks for him and that fact all are certainly accepting that he is indeed talented…
At the age when he took to dancing schedules and acting assignment kids his age are busy nagging their parents to give them the latest models of cell phone in the market or Wi-Fi in the house or increasing the pocket money…well the kid expresses the wish that he wants to be the Hero of his family and let them live a peaceful life… “sukoon ki zindagi” Does that make him a “cry baba”??? Does that merit him being called creating a Drama to stay in the show???
No Dear ones for your kind information and record I would like to highlight his achievements at a tender age which few kids can brag about…which this kid does not even bother to boast…for he has not yet lost his humility and does not even think of highlighting…so I WILL DO THE HONOURS!! Wonder why it escaped the notice of Jhalak research team?
Here it is…At a very tender age he happened to win a very important Dance contest on a popular channel and gained popularity. To reach there I am sure he went through rigorous practice and bone crunching rehearsals and faced fatigue of endless hours and went through uncertain months not knowing where he stands for the show…he won!
He bagged the role of a Rajput prince in a popular channel and essayed it to hilt and perfection that his name has become synonymous to Pratap…so efficient were his warrior skills that he came to be referred as a symbol of reference to that iconic historical character...he worked on his diction and again stayed away from family and maybe went without decent meals and endured unpleasant weathers…and of course went on to bag many awards which proudly sit in his new house…
With the money he gathered bit by bit…he created a shelter for his family and social mobility. He owns a pretty abode in an upcoming suburb of Mumbai…anyone would agree that in itself is a mammoth task!!! His name prettily etched on the name plate…
His character in the tele show so impressed that a Fan fic Book named #Fanforthefirsttime was created…it is a 239 page book depicting his skills as a Rajput prince and his sincere performance …it sold overseas and is yet selling on Flipkart India. It is the first Fan fiction of India…one of its kind in our country and is currently being processed for a very famous Record in our country…Can a single star on television yet claim an entire book penned on a single character that he essayed??? I guess the record is looking into it...and we are awaiting results to see if the record has been paralleled by anyone?
He bagged a cool role of main lead in a Marathi movie…slated for a Diwali release and am sure he would do justice to whatever role he essays...he will bring his sincerity to it…
Does he advertise any of this? No for he only believes in giving his best to his current projects and believes in just being…do what he does best…dance or Enact…
For he is our hero…as he so effortlessly portrayed in his dance! Cap dance is his speciality…creating magic with his simplicity is his USP…his slow motions we can swear by and get one with it…he was what we call him…#Honeydrip …dripping honey on the floor ..he was #EffortlessGrace in that he without so much as blinking an eye changed caps from different angles and with Vaishnavi supporting his every move no wonder we had a wonderful well-co-ordinated smoothly flowing assurance of ‘Main hu hero tera…” indeed you are…


The command on his body is immense which I repeat comes with tons of practice and precision…
Faisal you are a Hero and do refrain from shedding those tears we hate them from our hero…we prefer the standing Ovations you keep getting and the resultant mischievous smiles that you collect when you are getting the comments “Blockbuster se bhi bada performance” and “ anokha bachcha” indeed…Jhalak ke hero…
Another request I have is experiment more and give us a dance routine we have never seen you do before…not risky but  stretch your own limits and set new parameters that’s what a hero does…creates new limits by extending own…
And before I close and sign off cannot help but mention…I am saddened by the news that Karan Johar leaves Jhalak…Oh My #PiedPiperOfJhalak what will Jhalak be without you? You were the signature persona of this show! What will we do? You brought your luxurious charm to the show…you endorsed Abundance and were a standing example of how to critique without being harsh and how to have fun...it would be so difficult to bid you ADIEU…MUST YOU GO??
You were a friend...motivator…the cheerful companion embellishing this show…Jhalak was never designed without you. Why should you go? Can we do something to bring you back? Do let us know and consider coming back...we will wait with our hearts and smiles in our beings for you…should you take a U-turn…Loads and loads of love to you Karan Johar…I shall ever Miss you in Jhalak…come back!

Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa –Made in India, Really???


I am a Jhalakite and I look forward to weekends specially for each of the contestants' performances and also I am glued to Twitter for all the lovely responses that I have been getting from fan pages and the Contestants themselves. So let me begin by Thanking Raftaar and Sneha Kapoor for actually taking time out and letting me know that they indeed liked my blog. Not only that but Sneha Kapoor was kind enough to connect Shubhreet my #SteelnCotton Lady and she was so prompt in acknowledging that she indeed read my Blog and also liked it. Such moments are wealth for a blogger and works more than any remuneration .It makes me roam around on my Twitter and enjoy this journey with all the updates that begin pouring in from the Colors handle and from all the contestants.I can only hope that other contestants follow their example and lemme know they read my feedback and if nothing else make our Little Man Faisal Khan read and transfer the importance of how much his Fans value him...

We had Independence Theme as “Made in India” and well I had my emotional moments…Wow moments and …Ok ..theek he moments…
Jhalak - Made in India...Really?? We Indians are Funny populace and We so love to Declare our patriotism and do Tentpole Advertising that every Single one of us loves to Encash the moment...Hmm...so this week on jhalak I had my ahaa moments...made me teary eyed made me frown and well Floored me into my Fandom...

So Jhalak guys do forgive me if I give out glares and muhmuahhhs!!! First Day was Well uneventful and not so ...umm...memorable only till it lasted...Made in India was the Theme but the representation was fuzzy by the Contestants ...maybe they did not understand ...maybe they just did their own thing...or maybe we expected something else...

Ashish Chowdhary has a designer who does not quite understand his ocassion and needs. I am glad he is sporting enough to accept jokes from Manish that "He is a Non Dancer from saat janam" In this Act too I do feel energy was missing and it was going a little crazy and messy.At times he was lost and fumbled a bit. Now he needs to shake up and wake up and actually get moving into the zone we call dance.

Raftaar and Sneha made an attempt to give a tribute to Lord Shiva and show a war Dance. One word of advice to anyone who attempts dance at its formative stage…Do not attempt Dances that have so many deeper and sacred overtones to it. It kinda puts pressure to Deliver and adds Stress ...

 for it requires years of practice to perfect a TAANDAV DANCE OR WAR DANCE…you simply cannot do justice to it when you have break neck schedules..
Two minute limitations and one week preparations…you just cannot. End of matter! It is not to say that a disrespect was intended as Poor Raftaar later Apologised on Twitter…you tried is all I can say but You are not yet a seasoned Dancer to get all the Nuances perfect and bring that energy that so brings the viewers to the edge. There were energetic moments and there were Fumbles and tumbles …like when Raftaar threw her choreo partner violently that showed immense trust but when he could not maintain the final pose ..it spelled Disaster…All I can say is it happens and next time do not combine any routines which will put pressure on your as yet amateur shoulders...

After all you are just about learning to dance and perfect the moves why get into the zone of Deep reverent classical moves…?

Irfan Pathan came clean n Clear and he looked awesome and handsome.Why do men keep Foliage on their faces n mar their USP beats me..Shahid . ..Sun raha hain na tu??? Keh rahi hu main...!!!

Shahid was a thorough Professional and a Darling with Saif Ali khan and Katrina Kaif who had come to promote their upcoming film Phantom. To sit with Serenity and face a man who shares a past is well worth applauding.He gave Meera  and Us an Awwww .with "My fav is Meera"...all followed suit ..but he told his Newly Wed Publicly..I'm done with the past and you need proof I Give it to you..Shahid ...If I wouId be Meera I wouId snoozycuddle you loads ... !

We had cute moments there with Cricket and stuff but well...it was too short and they were weary of letting themselves loose...Jhalak was maybe too energetic for them...it is mad jesty place and they are well too Solemn a folks... Irfan did try a Gujarati Garba and Dandia...

he is just about getting there with his moves.He is still awkward a bit and most of the work is carried out by His choreo partner …but he needs to gear up now. He was quite taken in by the feedback he was getting from social media from his fans…just what I keep telling in my blogs again and again…

It is the time of Instant feedback and instant reviews and instant connect …Oh dear contestants do not shy away from connecting with us fans after all are we fans not expected to use our telephone lines and vote for long times while we sacrifice our weekend times? The least can be expected is well…a retweet or a reply and most of the contestants are getting there and we are one very Happy lot for all those who are heeding the advice and well we wait for those who are yet to wake up !!!

SANAYA IRANI put in a MUJRA FORM...

I loved the performance but I detest the song that was chosen …I mean Mujra is such a Nazaakat laden dance with eye movements intentional stares and seduction galore only through beautiful moves of the body and suggestiveness that comes from eyes and facial expression.

It calls for lot of thehraav so to speak but the choreo chose a Kinky song …titillating song that just did not fit the ambience so while Sanaya did her best to bring her inimitable charm to the entire performance the entire Act failed to leave an impact that would last more than the time it was there…after a stunning last week, this disappointed.The choreo cannot keep depending on Sanaya's persona to carry on all the ACTS..he needs to really get his creative shoes on and groove…but I do feel it is little unfair for Sanaya …and a stern Question “Is this Made in India really?” Do we Indians stand for “Baby doll main Sonedi?” Do we not have mujras from “In aankhon ki masti ke mastaane huzaaron hain?” Do we not have “Dil cheez kya hain aap meri jaan lijiye?” Guess Her choreo must have not seen these old versions…so Ganesh and I FIND ourselves on the same wavelength once again…where he admonished her eyes and face and hands not co ordinating ...after the last week stunner this performance was a wee bit disappointing for me. I am certainly expecting that Her choreo will do in-depth research and truly give us our Sanaya in all her full glory...

I know by now I am thoroughly spoiled by my readers and so am getting really Frank and furious but We are talking India this week and deeper Dance forms deserve more work and Dedication from the Choreographer ...Ganesh you are so right there that It is a Dance and every Dance has its Disciplinary mandate and it must be followed...

Vivian and Her Choreographer Bhawna put in a truly fantastic thoughtful and Serene theme of Alert India and Dormant India...They looked Indian with their Simple Costumes and Yes Vivian was and is steadily gaining Ground like India herself....pausing maybe a bit and pushing limits maybe a bit...

Both supported each other and personified Simplicity ...But there was Vision and India in their performances.I loved the Act and was left with pensive mood. Yes Bhawna you are there and your Contestant is moulding himself and willing ...Make Hay while the Sun shines and while the Contestant is showing promise...Vivian I so admire that you are shedding your inhibitions and enjoying the Jhalak season.

Another Versatile Damsel my #PrettyLassy put in an Athletic Do and we so so loved it.


She enamoured us with her Representation of Mary Kom . We are proud of Mary and now of Scarlet. She depicted the Same Passion that Mary brought in her pursuit of Sports and Victory...

Scarlet wins hearts by making extra efforts to know and Absorb the peace of India that resides in Religious Spaces...We have so many of them .Gurlie...India openly embraces those who surrender...and we already love you.

I like the continuous Stance of Hands and aggression Scarlet kept in her entire Tiny frame. She could have given a whack or two to her Choreo by mistake...she was so involved and it showed.I love it when Stars get in the skin of the Character and stay there...Lotsa luv Lassy ...You represented a very Passionate and Simple India in the most Adorable India...

Probably the only Memorable Act of  the Day one as I forgot too soon whatever transpired that Day...and was not too hopeful about Day two...for I was little embittered for How my India was not wholly represented with Dignity or in its full glory ...and I'm getting a little annoyed at the inneudos and double entendres...My Question "Can Humour be Not Responsible?" Can Humour not be Doled out to depict Class? Why Does it have to be Crass?"

But Day Two will go down as the most Memorable and Endearing Day ...few things happened which I will keep in my Heart for a long time to come and not forget in a hurry!!!
It began with a faceoff between two cutiepies Radhika Madan and Faisal Khan.

#MilkMaiden looked so Decked up and they represented Classic Dance forms and I repeat...

Novices should not try something that only seasoned Dancers can do ! Though she looked so pretty in jhatkas and made cute and nakhra faces....There was a certain lack of energy in the entire Act and it made me wonder if she already knew her fate was sealed and she will be the one to be eliminated... She looked so ethereal and from another world with her Nakhra se full Chammak Challo...She indeed was our Jhalak ka Chammak Challo...I will so sorely miss her...She could have stayed a bit longer to dazzle us and grow as a Dancer.She did represent A lovely aspect of India and lend a respect to the Theme of "Made in India" ....maybe she accepted defeat during Technical rehearsals when she saw what she was up against ...and she was up against a Mighty opponent who is what we call #EffortlessGrace...A #Masterpiece..
I subscribe to this Little Man's Fandom and often Lot of post n preAct comments n judgements are Directed at me . He is totally unavailable at the Social media level in that he does not come out to interact n take bows from his adoring Fans. The moment preAct pictures began doing the rounds...it was a Shocker...Faisal was to attempt a Laavni...

Traditional Maharashtrian Dance!!! Holy God!!! N that too as a Lavni Dancer...Damnation...Arre Deva...was my first thought for so many things can go wrong and He is so Young...if he were to do one wrong thing...one Drag move and all hell let loose on him...maybe but me too ..all those family members...acquaintances...fans...would well deprecate...But I have faith...so far in this #Honeydrip there is no Vulgarity...no shred of contamination and all purity and sincere hard work in oodles...so I waited to see what unfolds...

LAVNI is special for I have witnessed the classic forms on my Black and white Television by The Ethereal beauties of The Times when Dance was revered as a Form to be perfected...Art to be absorbed ...when Faisal entered draped in full Navvaari pink and green and the Foot work...told me...He is a winner...out and out...Lavni is seduction by a fully clad woman who entices and yet has an attitude of "Savour me from Afar" She connects and so did Faisal with every perfect Stance.. Grace...Abandon ...and I was waiting for the EyeBrow Arch...and was delighted beyond Glee to see it come out so perfect...the innocent Facial expressions pretending Naivete...Perfect...Amazing...Intense...magic...Riveting...Magnetic....

Oh I need to stop praising this Dude .He brought back all those memories of childhood back...he kept the Dignity Intact...Every nuance of Lavni covered from entry to opening of Face to Nakhras to Final Namaskar...was Vaishnavi there?? I did not notice and I feel it was only and only Faisal Act. He proved that when An Actor and Dancer and a Hard worker takes over nothing is impossible...he was probably the only one who successfully attempted a Traditional Dance and did full justice...

And here a word to Mr Vivek Chachere...guess we will share a love hate relationship ...for I blame him one blog and send love in another but what to do? You are the Sutradhar of my Masterpiece...you outta keep him that way...so accept my love for this amazing Lavni... Of course I hear that a Mr Ashish Patil lend his expertise to you..it was required that one have a deep discerning knowledge for this Dance form which made it possible for him to come forward and do it with Panache and in full glory...

A man dressed as girl can appear as a Drag..Thanks for not letting that happen...and so it rendered the Judges Speechless ...give a Standing Ovation and applause ...and perfect 40 and the Immunity Ball...keeping my little one Safe for next week..
But I have a complaint..Ganesh I wanted to know what you felt about the Dance...why did you not say something? Anything?

I have a complaint  to Faisal...after such a rocking Do you never come forward to take your fans Bows and comments....and they feel so disheartened...for their sake I am putting few screenshots of Fan comments as is...I hope someone Sensible...sensitive out there in Jhalak house let the Little Man know How much we value him...that once in a while let your fans in and Hear them and take your Bows ...Here are few post episode madness of your fans who love you and want to let you know through their Edits and tweets and let you know you are sorely missed on twitter handle post your Act...

                       FAN'S SECTION






My Moment of grin and fondly hug Faisal comes when in my chat comes a message from an unexpected corner Congratulating me for being a Fan and Faisal for his Dance. This person is totally a Non TV person and not from my Fan world but my Homeschooling world. She happens to glance at Jhalak and was convinced why I was a Fan of this super wonder called Faisal Khan...


Oh Dudo...Thank you for keeping my faith in you glowing and kicking and rising ever High..
I request other Fan worlds to connect and send me Edits n screenshots and I am sure to cover them in my next blog as a gift of this lovely moment when someone told me *Have not seen such Dance in years...he was unbelievably Good...* He was...More than good...it is not an easy task to bring the vulnerable feminine spice and Demure Viles n guiles of a Woman throwing a Lavni Dance...You are gifted is all I can mumble between "Wow" n "OMG"

We had Shamita Shetty and Mohit Malik cooking up a storm and Riot with raunchy numbers.

Shamita is another Dignified Damsel who just cannot look Vulgar no matter what and So is Mohit..

He looked  at everybody dazed still after his Lollypop laglelu ...Like Did I just do that???  He created his own Brand of Charm and Churned out rollicking Dhimtadak dance that one cannot just sit and take in...you had to get up and Go a little Crazy with him and yourself and your half a dozen guests who are anyways in a party mood.Mohit Malik you were a surprise package out there with Marishcha and you made us laugh and roll and go Rowdy on a Sunday...Loved the madness...
Shamita too danced in her full buxom madness literally all out and there with movements changing faster than wind and with all the aahhh and oohhhs...My Petite femme ain't Tremblin anymore if at all she is all set to create Tremors for Bystanders and all would want to be that"Pritam pyaare " she is beckoning to dance at her beck and call. She was a Sexy Bullet men would not mind getting wounded...

Stand alone the Acts were cool but My question again...They brought in people and asked "Do they dance like that when they see girlies? Do we need that kind of India? Just Now when Safety and Dignity of women are explored debated and empowerment demanded do you not think That kind of Crass Humour call should be avoided?? Can humour be not responsible..? can it not be created without Denigrating Women ?

As Acts I enjoyed What Shamita Did Mohit Did...as Representation of India I express my Displeasure and Deep discontent.
Then Came a Moment I shall cherish Forever...In came Shubhreet my #SteelnCotton lady walking all by herself with her New Gift...Ganesh Hegde took personal interest and arranged all the Details of Fixing the Prosthetic Companion for her.You will have a special place in my heart for this Tender gesture...For this sensitivity...and I ask

Can Jhalak not represent such genuine moments...Does India not stand for Giving...and basking in the Joy of Receiving. I salute this Spirit of Ganesh...I bow to Shubhreet too for allowing us to witness this rare combination of Grit that I am Complete ...yet I accept humbly this new Challenge. For it will be one...

All these years she mentally and physically trained herself and resolved to live differently but now she needs to go on a Different phase yet again. Another Adventure young lady...Surmount it and Enjoy it. Dancing with this companion maybe Tad bit new and will require Adjustments...If anyone can you can ...GoodLuck...I have lived with limited Vision and then to Adjust to lenses was at best described funny ...but once the fun attitude Kicks in ...Life takes on another hue...
Coming to your Dance ...

Again you represented our National Bird and Joie de Vivre of Love and Pride...You were a little off key at places...first time...but challenging oneself is your Forte.

I guess the Heavy Costumes did you In...and again Ganesh send in his by far Adorable Sensitive Insight..."I can never get your level of Difficulty ...so true" Darn right...We can only just begun to empathise ...or understand How each move can and gets perfected...for a normal Dancer it may take an hour...in this case maybe Hours...Go on young lady ...our Respects and love and Pride and blessings ...and more are with you...

Everyone gets to hug you...and Katrina Kaif could  not resist hugging you and saluting your spirit..Will I ever get the Honour? And Manish Sure knows to break the Sombre Blanket of Awkward Moments and get back on track...Excellent use of Humour I would say...This is the express purpose of Humour to infuse Life in a situation where none existed...I want to drive Home this simple truth...Humour can inspire and  be responsible and laden with candour...it refreshes and uplifts...not make you look for a place to hide...

I want to enjoy the Show more than ever with my kids...From Manish may My kids derive the witty whacky on the spot Humour...From Karan his ever present ever enveloping Sophistication...He is truly the #PiedPiperofJhalak who truly guides the Show under his Presence ...he brings in his refreshing and at times Biting barbs and at times sends in charming darts of giggling Gaffes...I love it...
Shahid too is finding his niche and yet he is little unsure and hesitant to straight Go n kill...Maybe afraid of Controversy it may stir or feelings he might hurt...so he is like a really nice Guy...with a Bushy foliage...I'm going to keep on pushing my advantage...Till I get what I want...Clean and Green Shahid...what say??
Ganesh has a place in ma Heart forever.He will be in my books as a lovely human being...Sensitive...and I will so smile again if he goes in the mood of a week back... "Toh mat bol" He is so cute with his gentle Digs at Lauren's Hindi...Which is equally hilarious...we quite love your efforts at mastering our Language...you will get the hang until then your Desi girl will entertain and represent you totally...we will go to sleep dreaming about a poetry attired in Green ...Might be you are a Dream girl for many a Tender naive young dudes...?? Sending Shout outs to your fans too to send me their Fan madness...

At the end Jhalak had me singing an infamous line from the Shah Rukh Khan starter "Phirbhi Dil hain Hindustaani...Apni chatri tumko de de kabhi Jo barse paani...kabhi naye packet me beche tumko cheez puraani...Phirbhi Dil hain Hindustaani"

That is what we are ...Made in India...sometimes happy sometimes sad...sometimes polite sometimes crass...kabhi Khilaadi kabhi Anaadi...Hate us or love us...world can no longer ignore us.. Signing off until next week...my Happy hours begin by Wednesday with Updates and news and tweets and we swing...big time...A whole world exists before and after an episode.. Jhalak guys do you take note????

Jhalak Gagariya Chalkat Jaaye…

                              
Why such a caption or Header?? For I am in supa Chuckle mood…for I am enjoying the Jhalak stint and blogging…for I had a whale of a time sharing it and I am so so so deeper than thou Grateful to Raftaar and Sneha…Radhika Madan…and Scarlett Wilson actually bein thoughtful and comin forward and acknowledging they indeed liked all the Epithets I send their way with tons of love and hugs…
Dear ones Luv yuuuuu guys so much and I have screenshot it and kept it as a Keepsake…my new autograph remember??? Thank You...again...hope all follow your example…simple equations now…interact with your fans and they will put you on a pedestal and worship you…
After all you are expecting them to sit up the night and use their precious weekend nights to vote for you…the least you can do is tweet and retweet and reply…all fond bantering over a click of few buttons on smart phones...all of you guys think about it…
That is possibly the reason Manish Paul has to sell Voting for Shubhreet, Irfan, and Scarlett...and thankfully the judges took the decision of no elimination…so cute and kind they are! I too loved it…where is the place for tears in such a happy dappy cool and frappy show???
 Why do you not devise some innovative way and do away with tears and accusation of unfairness…Coz our #Sleekhunk Shahid says “I hate Tears...Pushpa!” Me too…Shahid...still the foliage hides a Handsome and Fair Frame…do consider showing us the bright and fresher than dew face of yours…just asking…you are so good-looking why would you not show us the Shahid we fell in love with years and years ago…your amazing grins and twinkling eyes are lost in that long stubble…well I will keep requesting…Free citizen of India You are…finally your own call and decision matters…

Our show opened to my #MilkyMaiden Radhika Madan lighting up the jazzy Jhalak floor with a “Go Go Go Govinda!” while the raunchy clean and neat powerful jhatkas of Sonakshi were missing…she brought her own cutesy tootsy flavour to it…
she is so frazzly dimply and adorable…you wanna pick her up and shay… “sho shweet” and If I get hold on her I will keep her tucked in my pillow and kiss her every night muahhhhh…
Every single night…I like what they did with the pot and the whirl on the shoulder…and the effort of a Doll trying to be drastic was so heart warming...it was fun all the way...I enjoyed though at times there were moments that stagnated a wee bit…her thousand tiny wavy smiles more than worth drooling…
Ganesh and Lauren too have a great camaraderie going there with “Iske tuitor ke pese kaato ye kuch nahin bolti” and “Meetha jagah” and “ Maa ki aankh”…at the same time Ganesh Also brings tons o Techno details...beneath all that “ visarjan hints on 17 september” and soft spoken jovial banter “He has a look out...m watching you…”
He was too right and spot on with if certain steps do not match up and work out...you must leave it …Go Ganesh Is all I can say...we are all ears…as I can so easily say...oh yeah yeah..I felt that but I did not know how to say that Technically…so yes Go go go Go…#Technocrat...really!!
My tweetypie…go in the Act rather than thinkin you are someone else…simply get in the skin and slither…

My #QuiveringDoe ain’t quivering anymore…

Shamita Shetty brought on a deluge of fire on the stage…and Jhalak stage was something altogether different…her costume was the most stunning golden and red and her attitude...Hail glitterati…Here I come…she has shed those shadows and come on her own and …la la la…Piya tuuu…is an all time favourite…
From Helenji and when we were growing up…we just had to rever her…we could not imagine to dance with abandon like her…only when we were alone with our girl gangs…we have fond memories of yelling this song calling our Beau from ethers and making fun of ourselves…
But it is a song which brings everyone to the level of energy where everyone wants to shake a leg in every way they can…you can close your eyes and simply tap a tap on it…The Samba was…wham!! Wham!! Wham!!
I loved it…crooned loudly over it and jumped on my sofa…with my kids in tow…we had a blast…seeing her was an absolute treat to the eye and spirit…#MistyDoe Explosive and Enchanting is how you were…From here on I feel you must soar up and up and rivet us every week…next week for sure I will see you...as you have won over the BOURNVITA BALL…Lauren is so right…Raita fela diya…
My tweetypie: I have yet to see you come and take bows after such a Frapply fizzy and foamy do…we wanna know you…Will you??

Then came a soft breezer called #DarknRuggedMalik…he still has that dazed and forlorn look “Can I dance?” types…He still does not believe it yet...even after four long weeks and steady growth from him…his rendition on Kal hon na ho was quite Melodious…
No over the top trying to be SRK he was simply Mohit. The Mohit who is so easy to fall in love with…to like and feel good with! His gentle movements had that kinda wavy and come sail with me call and we soaked in it…and swam a little and came back with a pensive feel to the whole outlook of life…enjoy this moment for Kal ho naa ho…
Now Karan does have to come and reminisce…how can he ignore the beckoning of one of his fav mentions of his pet projects and equally popular dances…he does get you to smile fondly with his unabashed koi mil gaya…
And by now his one leg signature step…hope Ganesh tells me what it is or how to do it? After 40 I’d say karan has chosen to be happily naughty and we love that one leg shake…so much life he puts…there are no energy drops all raise and it is a laugh riot…!!!

We had a sensuous Bonanza and steaming and piping number by none other than my #ClassBuddy Raftaar…
what could be the best that can be churned out? Breath-taking and made us breathless…
I am sure It made Shahid want to go home to his newly wed...it was that ablaze with seduction and sizzle…the crackling chemistry sent sparks flying and sighs galore…that too cold ones and hot imagery it conjured up…they were a cozy twosome...
The Act was theirs all the way…they were lost souls out there completely enmeshed as one and in unison they stole my heart…the lift with one hand with colours theatrically swirling in all directions and covering them in a cloud and haze of suggestions untold and undiscovered…
There was Intimacy born out of respect for each other…there was happy possession and surrender and it dragged us gently into the soft mire of red hue they worked up...I could go on…yes Jhalak is getting hotter and ever better…maybe they read my suggestions on bringing seduction on the floor…
Even if it was a simple coincidence…I absolutely will keep it as my most watched and viewed and treasured two minutes from Jhalak…
Though there were spins and lifts but each perfected and in sync and moving from one to another that it was a perfect symphony of movements…effortless…graceful…sensuous…it was like a painting speaking in front of us…I dedicate two verses from William Wordsworth…
I gazed and gazed but little thought –
What wealth the Show to me had brought…
I will keep this with me in my heart for my happy softer moments…
My tweetypie: I love both of you…you two are so so lovable...just be yourself and I do wanna see you till the end. All that this blogger desires is a little feedback from all of you…please encourage them to do it #ClassBuddy!

Then came the Dance of much hyped duo of Siddharth Nigam from Ashoka fame and Faisal Khan pairing…
Ok I am going to court a little ire from my own people here by really being honest here…I did not like the Act…enuff said and lot left…
I feel the song is highly energetic and volatile dance of Shahid Kapoor…but it did not go on the two kids…Song had immense energy and dance had lurched at lot many places...the fatigue on the kids faces was palpable…
When I heard the two would get together...I looked for and hummed “Main Khiladi Tu Anaadi” from a famous song filmed on Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan...it could have suited...one khilaadii and one anaadi…so much could have been played out in those two minutes…If superstar is the theme...Amir khan is an all-time superstar...have they not heard the rumbustious number “Koi kahe kehta rahe kitna bhi humko deewana…jab saz hain awaz hain fir kis liye hichkichana”
Oh Mr choreographer hear it…every single line is so full of youth and recklessness of these young gen…They could have created sensation galore and memories for fans…but…instead We faced two minutes of pure Acrobatics and gymnastics and My two talented but tired Kids…
How much they must have rehearsed and gone all out to create Magic…but all that happened were mistakes…staggering on the chair…using the flips and gymnastic they could have underplayed a bit jumping and created Dance movements and expression…
Both the kids stand for unique talents but the vision that choreographer brought into the song was rebelliousness and rivalry…Both stumbled once at least and so as much as I feel for both of them...
I must say their potential was not used to the hilt...instead of camaraderie and rapport…why a theme of ruckus and rebellion?? Ganesh again I find myself on the same page with you…as much as we admire the hard work …it has to be said sternly...
Do experiment with elements that will uplift the theme and not create a downward spiral for the contestant…give them as much as can be of sync…what breaks the sync do not incorporate…
Hope you listen…being in touch with fans gives a rough feel of what is the general feedback...in today’s time and twitter and net world...Complete lack of interaction also misconstrues at times as Hoity toity behaviour…in that case it would be better to follow the examples of certain celebs like Sanaya or Shubhreet and not be there.
If you have opened an account it does tell me that you wish to interact and pamper fans with your latest happenings and get a general feedback and pulse of what is in for the fans from the celeb side and also a chance for Fans to show their love and give instant feedback…by and large…juzz saying…opinion…you have the choice to discard it…I simply bring all the contestants #FanMessages and sentiments…
Tweetypie: Yes you Dance effortless but time to look at the theme and bring some vision and lasting impact…This is Jhalak and stumbling on a step is a grave n gross loophole…aim at smoother and clean moves…and what you can do…
Ahhh!!! Lauren…jaalim aag laga de…Barbaad ho rahe he..hur sheher wale…It is a Come hither song with Dignity…a veiled call of a whispering Maiden for wilder…whatever….she is amazing and the command she has on her jhatkas…wow and gorgeous and so so adorable…
She appears to me so vulnerable and volatile …all at once…she is to be seen and not touched at all for if we do then it may stain the picture perfect fragile yet beautifully and artfully sculpted Lauren…You are the stuff soon folks shall write poems and watch out…there will be sketches and idols pouring in from your Fan world…Just keep taking our chen and aaram…Jaalim aag laga de..
Tweetypie: Do I get to interact with you on twitter? Would you tell me if you liked the #PassionGlory Epithet?
  Day two brought me immense surprise and a squeal of delight and peal of oh wow…the types you do when you are agape….Vivian Dsena…
Oh my god…I go there again as a “I told ya..” shed those inhibitions and you are there…and you were so quick and light on your  feet...you were enjoying yourself…
Not at all waiting to catch your choreo partner! Infact this time around I was not at all looking around at Bhawna. It was a through and through Vivian Act…There were again comfortable lifts and spins and you did it as if you did it every day…tons of footwork and healthy glow on the face…
I reiterate is this the same Vivian Dsena we saw last three weeks? You have transformed yourself and I wish now you keep yourself there...you knew you had it in you…what a perfect sync and what a jubilant victory over inhibitions…you were someone else altogether…simply applause…the choreo was smart to give you more Dance and expressions and naughty…light…fun.…
And I so so loved that breaking up of smile on your handsome face…Now that you have shed inhibitions and have become comfortable…actually bring in some vision and beautiful moments that settle and become treasure worthy on your journey for you and for us and for everyone to emulate…from a non-dancer…hesitant…waiting to not miss a step…to fun frolic AND COZY Besharam...Audience does not mind this cute Besharam. You were Fantastic and awesome…
Tweetypie: Do lemme know which Epithet u choose from the three I had send your way…all fit…perfectly…cheeky jeeky performance and I am floored…and wait for next...
I know whose effect it was...two stunning gentlemen of the industry…Abhishek Bachchan and Legendary Rishi Kapoor…and his...Meri umar ke naujawano…was a case in proof…his energy is so infectious it pulled out KARAN JOHAR with his…DAFLEEWALEEEEEEE….Daflee baja…Piedpiperjhalakwaale..dil chura ke le jaa…
Karan threw caution to winds and treated us to a rare peek into the jolly good fellow and his bachpun…loads o love Karan that was somehow nectar sweet and touching though you did in the moment of jaunt and jest…
I know it harbours precious memories of a childhood untainted and moments spent in pure joy and protection of your Parent who has left you but is in spirit and every deed with you… and kept an indelible mark…we are grateful that you let us in to this Karan as a child…the music in my HEART I BORE…Long after it was heard no more” this small section too will be regarded as a lovely and distinct memory…
Abhishek put in a RAP with Raftaar and we enjoyed that Baritone…cool and adroit…it was a moment for all to simply get in and pay tribute to the coming together of such special people...it is not every day that we get to witness…

Shubhreet ma #SteelnCotton lady…
u make your own bench marks…All I can ask is..raam jaane kaha se laaye tu ye bal…hai ram…with a  dislocated shoulder and a permanent limitation…you looked lovely and you put in a beautiful Act…

If Lauren could not see any chemistry…I do have an explanation…just a plausible one…just my take...Diwakar and she have transcended that zone we call respect and have moved to reverence zones…
Diwakar must be witnessing daily how each move might trigger tons of adjustments for her and how she must be perfecting with an equal steely resolve…Shubhreet must be absorbing each creative manoeuvring from his side to get her to give her best and between themselves they challenge and move ever higher…
There is not much place to get in a chemistry that demands a little bit of romantic eye locks…they may not be able to view each other in quite that light…it’s a guru shishya worship and rever kinda relation….just maybe…
And so that makes our Rishi Kapoor wanting to get up and hug her and Abhishek promising that Aishwarya will perform if she reaches Jhalak finals…their Dance deserves only thundering claps or bow in respect and pride…no more needed…
Tweetypie: You are not on Twitter…please do consider coming so I can share my admiration and applause...so many get to hug you and praise you…I have been requesting Colors to get what I write for you  across…why will they not do it? Beats me!

Next I again going jaunty over Banno humaari Sanaya laage Sexyyyy…
She was the heroine of the moment…was there a choreographer with her? Was he even needed…she carried the whole Act so so on her Tiny shoulders.
 She brought all the elements of Kangana Ranaut and actually made us RUNOUT…cheesy that line was…but I so enjoyed the rumble and tumble and freaky storm she cooked up….piping and chortling and screaming with glee I was at the end...anyways this song is so made that anyone can get up and atleast give dance a go…
She looked so smoking hot and delicious and still the old school girl…and I will never be judgemental…though I can get quite mental the third time I saw your Banno…it was hands down rocking and super-duper paisa wasool and baraati dance…Hurricane of smiles and screams followed when she got her 40 with distribution of hugs to all and sundry and her excitement palpable for all to see and enjoy…
She was over the top and had no inhibitions whatsoever to demonstrate it and her reward was a hug from Karan and Shahid and Abhishek and Ganesh and Lauren and Rishi sir…all were so affectionately gazing at her peals of delight…refreshing and candid she is…no simple thank you’s from Sanaya…all out from her heart every delightful smile rolled out for each one to dip into…dizzy with delight..
Tweetypie: You too are sorely missed on twitter…would have loved to send my whistles and whooshes to you...love you loads…

This time however our #Grinocharmer goofed a bit I guess...At first I thought he is slated to dance on a Lagaan number from the attire however they went on to do the Rock and roll...hardly an attire that will allow for flamboyant movements…and somehow Ashish was not in his full element…
He smiled with strain and for once was not cracking any of his self-deprecating jokes on his own dear self as usual…hope you bounce back soon…the dance was clean but did not do much to elevate the mood or take you to paths un-trod or smile fondly…you saw it stoically and somehow the vibes that emanated from him were too solemn…wonder what happened? Ashish I like you with all the Banter and jokes back and forth do come back with it…

Irfaan Pathan is there where Vivian was a few weeks back…
watching every step and being conscious of not faltering and not making mistakes and counting and remembering steps but when it is Amitabh Bachchan’s number thodi Masti automatically creeps in and we cannot help but smile…
His immortal versions of chumma chumma de de… or pug ghunghroo bandh meera nachiti…are an all-time favo worldwide…he tried I would say...really tried and there is lot of scope for growth and smoothness to be inculcated…possibilities are there…just needs time to open up to himself and shed those inhibitions…
Tweetypie: You have a focus in your eyes that will help you master all that you envisage call upon that power and just do it…I loved the way you protectively shielded Scarlett all through the elimination announcements…I love you for that…

Why because Dear Scarlett…
I love you…my willo’wisp…my ‘forget me not’ blossom…I so so love you…you seem so easy to crumble…easy o cry and through those tears easy to beam a smile…so unsure and yet you rule the stage with a mighty aplomb and panache…
There is attitude galore when you walked with that chair…you REIGN…You are meant to reign and so shall you given the right chances. Scarlett surrenders herself to the moves of dances and it just flows melodiously and in symphony and harmony.
There is not a harsh moment when she is up there…I sway with her gentle yet powerful moves…I want to come and hug her deeply…My #PrettyLassy you are so na├»ve with your moves…so eager to please…yet too sure of your moves and effortlessly glide with your spins and jumps and slides…
And then innocently put in broken Hindi...jo hota hain achche ke liye…oh my Gal all achcha only will happen to you…I feel so protective towards her that I want to absorb all her tremors when elimination calls were taken...she was visibly crumbling under that scrutiny and danger zone…I am so glad we had a Protective Irfan to support that moment and let her know “We are in it together, whatever happens!!” That won my heart too Irfan…and as the adage goes with good people good stuff happens…Jhalak judges had not the heart to let both of them go...it is going to be so tough waving Au Revoir to any of the contestants…specially Scarlett…I am not yet ready to let her go...she has so much undiscovered yet left to demonstrate…Glad both of them stayed...they both are such wonderful individuals…
It is so unfair that Just because Scarlett does not have a Fan-base she faces the elimination wrath so often…Jhalak ought to come up with a better unbiased way to eliminate…but until then…we get to see all of them again next week and my Scarlett has her smiles back!!
Tweetypie: You are sweetheart and all will see the beauty inherent…now do something different and do control those betraying eyes of yours that mirrors every doubt and quiver you go through…reign like a Queen o Dance and do not let people in completely with what makes you tick. Keep ‘em guessing gal…folks love mystery not an open book…God big one that was…I LOVE YOU…Y?? I dunno…I neva know why I love someone even when meeting chances are slim…
And for once the judges were so so adorable…in taking that decision of no elimination…Devise some other ways please!!!
Next week we see Made in India theme and I look forward to goosebumpy Acts full of patriotism and funk and that fills my independence weekend with full gusto. I will be back in front of my TV set bang at nine no matter wherever I am...
I make arrangements I am back home to catch all the Action when it happens and not a deferred Live from other sites...I am in love with Jhalak…and so so look forward to next week…
FROM #JHALAKITE…Loads o Love and Hugs to all and sundry who read the Blog and give me feedback and share theirs too…Aloha!!!!
