Sourav Ganguly to judge ‘Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa 4′?October 5th, 2010 - 4:17 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Oct 5 (IANS) After a successful innings on the field, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is likely to judge dance reality show “Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa 4″ for Sony TV.
The popular cricketer has been offered the show along with actress Madhuri Dixit and former Indian batsman Navjot Singh Sidhu, a source told IANS.
Ganguly had earlier judged “Knights & Angels”, a reality show to select cheerleaders for Indian Premier League (IPL) Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sidhu has been popular for his deafening laughter as a judge on “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge”.
If all goes as planned, this will not be the first time sportsmen will be seen on “Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa”. In the first season, cricketer Ajay Jadeja had grooved on the stage, followed by hockey player and coach Mir Ranjan Negi in the second season. And Indian football captain Baichung Bhutia walked away with the winner’s trophy in the third season of the show.
The fourth season of “Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa”, the Indian version of “Dancing With The Stars”, is expected to go on air in December this year or January 2011, once the upcoming season of “Kaun Banega Crorepati” with megastar Amitabh Bachchan comes to an end.
The dance show features celebrity participants who are paired with struggling choreographers to learn the nuances of dancing.
Last season was judged by ace choreographers Saroj Khan, Vaibhavi Merchant and actress Juhi Chawla.
