Sanath Jayasuriya grooves to ‘Tama tama loge’June 8th, 2012 - 7:51 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, June 8 (IANS) International cricket star Sanath Jayasuriya performed on a different pitch — he took to the dance floor for forthcoming reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and grooved to popular track “Tama tama loge”.
The former Sri Lankan cricket captain was shy and, even in a 30-second sneak peek into his recently-acquired dancing skills, took a while to get used to the stage and dance style.
Dressed in a white suit, he came on the stage with his choreographer Suchitra, and started by pointing a finger here and there on the lyrics “Tu meri ahaa….”
He may not have been the best dancer from the total bouquet of 12 celebrities participating in the show, but he received the maximum cheers from the media during the glitzy press conference of the show held here Thursday night.
Later, he was even seen matching steps with dancing diva Madhuri Dixit, one of the judges on the show.
Asked if she would like to give some dance tips to Jayasuriya prior to the show, Madhuri, the original “Tama tama loge” girl said: “We will give our tips on his performance, but once the competition begins.”
But needless to say, Jayasuriya was a true sport on the dance floor.
“Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa”, which will also be judged by filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer Remo D’Souza, will go on air June 16 on Colors.
