Btw, in Taiyaari Jeet Ki, Farah once clearly stated, that few good dancers had not been chosen in top 21 just because they didnt have good personality / stage presence. And few had been selected for the same reason. Maybe, this is because the winner has to perform with Hrithik, and should look good with him. But she did make it clear then that from now on their decisions would be purely dance-based. As for Soumita, the less said the better But I think the whole hype thing was just because the judges had to keep a girl, just for the sake of having a girl in the competition. And it was obvious that all JD girls were strictly average. So they didn't have alot of options, right?
you are right, eliminations were always right, although there can be question about choreography and intentionally giving the eliminated contestant weaker act etc etc but thats a whole different sections. I wish like did or dpl, atleast the lead choreographers came to the fore, we could have known what really happened and the judges atleast could not rely on the chorepgraphy lacking point and talk straight to the chores.
good personality and stage presence? and the top 21 selected did? ankan is a fabulous energetic dancer with amazing technical skill, but really does he have any presence? saumita?kruti? abhas? only one with some presence was probably KSP, going y that they should have given him direct ticket to top3, he could have matched HR in looks and presence.
and what about grooming? we all know what contestants come in during audition and who gets out in the final? complete change , hair make up , sytle? remember shakti mohan? frizzy hair, non descript looks but amazing dance skills and look now glam she turned out to be. So that point is moot. remember Tv stars and even bw heroes and heroines. hritik , even in his pre KNPH days looked a normal ordinary person. he groomed himself and a team of hair, make up artists gets his looks right and thus we have the thing we see on screen.
keeping a girl in the competition? as i recall there was no end of suitable candidates in top 52. Its the judges fault they booted the good ones out. and saumita was no versatile genius, if she could do it, probably swarali can match her up too. swaralis ballet contemporary skills are just as good as her kathak skills her.
whatever, why are we even bothered with a crap of a show which has tobe closed weeks priror cozof poor performance?
