Mallika Sherawat, Javed Jaffrey to judge ' Chak Dhoom Dhoom 2'

After her box-office disaster with 'Hiss', Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat is now stepping down to the small screen to judge a dance reality show.

The actress will be adding glamour to the second season of 'Chak Dhoom Dhoom' on Colors, joining actor-comedian Javed Jaffrey and choreographer Terrence Lewis at the judges' panel. The show will mark Mallika's debut on television.

'Chak Dhoom Dhoom 2' is a team challenge which seeks to find the best group of dancers showcasing styles ranging from Cha Cha Cha, Bhangra, Hip Hop, Salsa, Ballet, Tango, Waltz, Jazz, Robotics, Locking Popping to the Lavni.

"This time around, Chak Dhoom Dhoom is going to be all about team spirit. We are looking for the best group performers. After seeing the show prosper in India, with this season, we have set out to find new talent in places as far as US, UK and UAE," said Ashvini Yardi, Programming head, Colors.

Model-turned-anchor Pravesh Rana will continue to be the host for this season as well

Mallika takes on Madhuri!
Dhinchak dhinchak, Rapa rap, rak chik rak chik... dhinchak ..Chal hatt, muhfat, ye phod de! Mallika Sherawat will remind you of these lines from Amit Trivedi's smash hit 'Aali Re'.

The Haryanvi bombshell, who'll soon make her debut as a judge on dance reality show 'Chak Dhoom Dhoom season 2', says it like it is without giving much thought about the repercussions of her quotes. Though bindaas, Mallika sounds a tad too defensive when it comes to commenting on her 'international' film career. Renuka Vyavahare chatted up controversy's favourite child Mallika Sherawat on competing with Madhuri Dixit, foray into tv, skimpy clothes and much more at a suburban five star hotel...

Why a foray into television so early in the career? Shah Rukh, Salman, Madhuri are established actors.
My films only cater to adults. Only those above 18 can see them, that too in theatres. This is my way of reaching to the kids and senior members of the family. This is my first family show! Bikini mein toh lagti hoon hot chocolate fudge, dekhte hai kya hota hai jab mai banti hoon judge! Also, I get to reach the common man who can't afford to buy a ticket in the multiplex.
Did the debacle of Hisss prompt you to make this tv debut?
Hisss was liked by younger audiences. If the 60 year old critics didn't like it, what can I do! Woh picture buddhon ko pasand nahi aayi. I was offered various tv shows before but I didn't find them interesting enough. I've reached a stage in my career where I am not doing tv just for the money! Chak Dhoom Dhoom 'team challenge' is about providing platform to kids who are brilliant dancers and would want to pursue dance as a career. When I was young I didn't get these opportunities.
You tried your luck internationally without any backing too.
I ran away from my house to become an actor. I didn't know anyone in Bollywood either. But I try. Here in Bollywood, everyone is busy promoting their own family girlfriend, my brother, my father etc. sab lagey hue hai apna vansh badhaane. It's important to go out there and attempt different things.
Your clothes often rake up controversies.
At Cannes, I dress up for the international press and audiences. Since this one is a family show, I will play the part. Ashley Rebello has designed for me and he is the one who always gets me into trouble (smiles).
You will be pitted against Madhuri Dixit now, since she judges Jhalak!
It's so unfair to compare me with Madhuri. She is a legend, an expert. I am just someone who enjoys dancing.
Jacqueline Fernandez has replaced you in Murder 2.
I have no regrets about not doing Murder 2.
Future projects?
Double Dhamaal and two other projects.

Terence & Javed are kanjus in appreciating talent-Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat can now thank her stars for coming out of the 'Adults Only' tag and getting into the living rooms of Indian Television viewers to be part of their family time!! Well, we are talking about the 'Hiss' girl migrating from her typical item numbers to being a judge on COLORS' new reality show, Chak Dhoom Dhoom Team Challenge..

Here is Mallika in conversation as she sets foot on Indian Television for the first time...

This is your first long stint on television. What comes to your mind when I say the name TV?
'Chitrahaar'… It was the most talked about show of that time. I used to wait every Friday to watch it and know which of the songs featured. It was my favorite show.

What do you enjoy the most on TV now?
Lots of things; I watch lots of dance reality shows, music reality shows these days.

Which is the show that you enjoyed the most?
I enjoyed last season of Chak Dhoom Dhoom, Dance India Dance and also Entertainment ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.

You are debuting on TV with COLORS' Chak Dhoom Dhoom. Why did you accept to be judge of the show?
The show has a unique format and contestants have been auditioned from the nook and corners of the country. There are people coming from the villages to be part of the show. I would say this is the perfect platform for people to showcase their talent. I was really amazed to see the kids participating in the show. I really wished I had got such an opportunity when I was a kid.

When did you dare to dance for the first time?
That was way back in my childhood. I used to love dancing, not the typical technical type though. I am basically from Haryana; I used to love Bhangda and Gida forms.

What do you expect to learn from the show?
I am learning a lot of dance forms from the show. The technical words for the dance forms are totally new to me. Kabhi meine naam bhi nahi suna hoga, aise words hai – B-Boying, Windmill and what not..

Madhuri Dixit is judging the show on another channel; do you think you have been pitched against her by purpose?
It would be very unfair if I answer this question. We look up to Madhuri always; we have grown watching her. Nobody should ask this question.
Whom do you idolize in India as well as on the International platform?
Madhuri Dixit, she is par excellence.

Tell us something about this show?
There have been so many stories going around about the contestants in the show. I would like to share an incident with you. There was this group for which the whole village has contributed so that they reach the audition stage of the show. And there was this middle class housewife who had come down from Gujarat leaving behind her belan and husband at home. They performed so sportingly well. 

In a reality show most of the time we have seen Judges having difference of opinions which results in a tiff between them. What have you to say about this?
I have nothing to say on this. All that has happened in our show has been peaceful. But I must say, 'Javed bahut lecture deta hai'. Also, both Terrence and Javed are kanjus in appreciating people. I always ask them to be bit more generous with the contestants.

Do you feel today's kids are really smart?
Yes, of course!! See, when we were kids, we did not get such a big opportunity. They have such an attitude and they do their best to catch our attention. They also get into doing dangerous acts, which I am seriously against.

Do you feel let out at times, because the other two judges on the show are Mahagurus when it comes to dancing?
I speak whatever I feel like after seeing the performance. Maine aaj tak kisiki suni hai? On a serious note, I comment only after valuing the whole entertainment package of the group.

Have you ever taken part in any competition when you were a kid?
In Haryana, there was a lot of competition and that is why I ran away from my house to become an actress.

So does that mean that you are scared of competition?
Not at all, I take competition in a healthy way. Just because of active competition in the industry, actors like us are always on our toes.  

Did you get any TV offer before Chak Dhoom Dhoom happened?
Yes, I got many offers. But I do not want to do any show for money. I am more keen on the format of the show, and only if it is interesting, I would want to take it.

You have always been known for your dressing sense from  Red Carpet of Cannes to Hollywood; what type of dressing style are your planning to wear here?
Cannes is at an international level. This show is for family audience, and I will keep this in mind when I choose my dressing style. My dresses for the show will be designed by Ashley Rebello. He designs all my clothes, and whatever controversies I have been part of for my attire are all because of him (smiles).

You have a very good rapport with Hollywood actors like Jackie Chan, Jhonny Depp; will we see them in your show?
Those are International stars who appeal to a different set of audience. I can call Jackie Chan but he has to appeal to our audience, right? If a viewer is watching the show sitting in Bhatinda,  will he know who Jhonny Depp is?
