Siddharth Shukla, the very handsome telly town actor who is currently essaying the role of 'Shiv' in Colors popular daily soap Balika Vadhu will now be also seen in the upcoming season of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa: Dancing with the Stars.

Siddharth who is famously known as 'Shiv' started his career as a model and was the runner-up in Gladrags Manhunt and has also won the title for the Best Model of the year 2005. Later, Siddharth tried his hands in acting with his debut movie' I Am In Love'. Now the model turned actor is all prepared to shake his legs in the prominent dance reality show- Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.

Talking about dance, Siddharth says, "Technically, dance is a movement of body. But for me it's all about enjoyment. I love to dance, but I cannot dance. Frankly speaking, I'm a true non-dancer."

Though the actor terms himself as a non-dancer he is also high in confidence. Siddharth says, "Jhalak Dikhla Jaa is not only for those who can dance professionally.  I believe that anybody can dance. It is true that initially I was hesitant to participate. But then on thinking twice, I realised it's the challenges that make life worthwhile. So, now I'm a part of this grand show".

On being questioned about the survival quotient, Siddharth says that dancing is tough, but I don't have any competition. The only competitor we have on this show is me and my choreographer - Siddharth and Sonia'. I cannot predict the future but as long as I'm in the show; my desire is to learn every dance form from my awesome choreographer Sonia. I consider that it's going to be a fun-filled learning journey rather than a repulsive competition."

For an actor who is playing a lead in a daily soap, it becomes very difficult to manage time. On the same Siddharth says, "It is not very easy. In fact, it is very exhausting to manage time for both - a daily soap and a reality show, simultaneously. After a long 12 hour shift for Balika Vadhu, I can barely spend 4-5 hours for rehearsals. But there are times when I have to practice for long, so as to match up with the show's soaring reputation. So it's more like a do or die situation."

When we spoke to Sonia who is choreographing Siddharth in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, she said that she is happy to have Siddharth as her partner, "It's true that he cannot dance but I think that is the greater challenge for me. To begin with, I'll be teaching Siddharth some free style dancing so that he can loosen up his body. And as the show will progress, I'll experiment some challenging forms of dance on him. So let's hope for the best."

Ahh, that's so sporting of you Siddharth. We at TellyBuzz wish you all the best!
