KBC winner Sushil kumar

The offer to participate in a glamorous show like "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" is difficult to resist, says KBC winner Sushil Kumar and hopes that he doesn't get more such offers in future as he won't be able to control the temptation to accept them.

Bihar-based Kumar became an overnight sensation when he won the bumper prize of Rs.5 crore in the fifth season of "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (KBC) and now he is seen shaking a leg in "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5".

"After winning 'KBC', I went back home. Later, I came to Delhi to study for civil services exam. After the exam, I went back home. My exam did not go well. When I was studying, this offer came my way," Kumar, who worked as a computer operator before his big win, told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

"People like me, who are nowhere near to the glam-world, don't get a chance to meet people whom we have always seen on screen. It is like a dream. Considering that I will be on TV and meet Madhuri-ji (Madhuri Dixit), I gave a nod to the show," he added.

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 - Dancing with the stars" went on air Saturday with 13 contestants and this time the judges panel includes Madhuri, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer Remo Dsouza.

Kumar is competing with Gurmeet Choudhary, Giaa Manek, Pratyusha Banerjee, Jayati Bhatia, Sanath Jayasuriya, Talat Aziz, Ravi Kishan, Isha Sharvani, Archana Vijaya, Shibani Dandekar, Darsheel Safary and Bharti Singh for the title.

Talking about his plans to take up reality shows in future, Kumar says he is content with his life but offers are too tempting for him to say no.

"This is a very tough thing to say. I am happy with my studies and my life, but offers like this to meet people like Ishaji, Raviji, Madhuriji are quite attractive. I just pray to god that I don't get such proposals in future because if it will be something interesting then I will take it up," he said.

Kumar says his wife, who loves watching TV, got excited when he got the "Jhalak..." offer and motivated him to participate in it.

"I never watch TV but my wife follows every show. She could not control her excitement when 'Jhalak...' team made the offer. She explained me about the concept of the show and motivated me to go ahead," said Kumar.

A non-dancer Kumar says the show is going to be an unforgettable experience.

"After winning KBC, I gained 20 kg in two months and here in 'Jhalak...' I have lost 10 kg in 15 days. I am the person who eats rice twice a day and here I am eating only chapatis. I have been asked not to eat rice as it will make me drowsy and I will not be able to rehearse," he said.

    This guy talks so much that he does not allow the judges to get a word in edgeways.., at one stage Karan Johar had to tell him to shut up!

    Good and Promising Actor
    Every role that was given to this guy from playing Ram to his current roles he has done a magnificent job. It a great joy to see him in Punar Vivah, he gives the serial a Bollywoodish ambiance.
    He is defiantly Bollywood material.
