The Bollywood starlet, Aarti Chabria who was seen as a contestant on the popular dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa – Dancing with the Stars on Colors, got eliminated this week from the show. This week the face off was between Aarti Chhabria and Karanvir Bohra in which Aarti lost the battle and got eliminated.  But well as we say that something ending is a start of something new, is no different for this talented girl too.

Actress Aarti Chhabria besides being an actor is a very good dancer too as we have seen in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. She came up with spectacular performances every week on the show along with her choreographer Cornell. Even though being badly injured she never gave up to quit the show but smartly handled the situation and gave her best performances even when she was in pain. 

A fighter in the true sense Aarti talks to TellyBuzz about her journey throughout Jhalak, the thing that she will miss the most about being a part of Jhalak, about her acting and much more.

Let's have a look on what she said…

How has your journey been in Jhalak dikhla Jaa?

My journey in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa was very interesting. I faced ups and downs but it is a part and parcel of life. I started off with 8 as my score, after which I got more and sometimes less marks too. Overall it was a brilliant experience for me and I enjoyed every part of it. Dance has always been my love and I was very happy to take up Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. I lost weight and have become much slimmer too. I met lots of new people and made good friends too on the show.

What made you take up Jhalak Dikhla Jaa?

I used to watch the previous seasons of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and I used to like the show and its concept very much. It was like the best dance reality show for me on my favorite channel on television namely Colors, and hence even I wanted to be a part of it and take my passion for dance ahead.

Are you a trained dancer?

I wouldn't say that I am a trained dancer as whatever I know comes from the Bollywood dance that I have done in my movies. It is a film experience I would say. Apart from that since my childhood I have been very enthusiastic when it used to come to dance. I love Indian classical very much and I had kept it for the last to be shown on the show but well before that I got eliminated.

Your most memorable moment on Jhalak?

As a whole the entire journey of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa has been very memorable for me. Right from the very first episode that I started till now, it has been superb. Judges' comments, each performance, learning different forms of dancing and much more is what I am going to take along with me from this show.

How was Cornell as a choreographer?

We were like two friends who shared a love-hate relationship throughout. He was a real task master I would say. He was my guru and I got to learn a lot from him. After my injury he kept the choreography simple so that I don't find much difficulty. Many a times it would so happen that I would not be able to do the dance moments and I used to tell him that don't you see that I cannot perform this, and he used to encourage me saying I can. It was a nice and funny time that I spent with him.

What will you miss about Jhalak Dikhla Jaa?

I will miss the people behind the camera, the Colors channel people, the PR team who was along with us and the BBC crew. It was like a Jhalak home for me. I bonded really well along with them. They were very kind and encouraging. Even when I got injured, they used to keep asking me about my health. I will miss them all.

Who do you think is the strongest contender on Jhalak and has the chances to win?

Honestly I would say that Lauren dances beautifully, I like her performances and the way she dances. Even we all know that Salman is a superb choreographer and lucky is the celeb (Drashti Dhami, this year) who gets him as a choreographer. So also Mukti Mohan from the wild card entry dances really well. We have been seeing Shaan and his growth in dancing on the show. He is an untrained dancer but he dances very good too now. But if we go through the format of the show I would want a non dancer to win the show.

What do you think about the wild card entry contestants?

I find all of them really good. Sana has a very good energy and that is a plus point for her. Mantra is dramatic in whatever he does, so he tries to get into the character which is very nice. Karan Patel is very good too, he is one very honest and witty person on the sets of Jhalak and I like him for that. Mukti Mohan dances gracefully and very well too.

Do you think it was a fair elimination?

Yes, it was absolutely a fair elimination. I feel I have survived a good 6 weeks on the show even after being injured. I am happy with the elimination. I take life as it comes and I believe in what happens, it happens for good. I was injured and I needed rest too. My doctor had told me to strictly take 3 weeks bed rest but I couldn't because I did not want to quit Jhalak. Come may what may, I wanted to give my performances. I am a fighter and I am happy with my performances and the eliminations.

Who is your favorite judge on the show?

Madhuri Dixit has  been my idol and will always stay so. But Karan Johar was absolutely brilliant. His comments were to the point and very accurate and also he has a superb sense of humor. He is a very fair human being. So I would say that Karan Johar was one of my favorite judge on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.

It has been long that we saw you in movies, had you taken a break?

I was never away from movies, After my last movie which I did in 2011, I took up the show Fear Factor, then I went to New York to do a course in Film making, After that I did a Punjabi movie and now I am doing Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. So I was never free, my schedule has been very busy so far. I have also done movies in different languages namely Telugu and Kannada. I have never restricted myself from doing anything in life. I like taking up different things to explore my talent. If you see I have not limited myself to movies only, I have been trying many different things at the same time.

But will we see you soon in Movies?

My Punjabi movie Viyaah 70 km is all set to release this coming September. Apart from that Bollywood has always welcomed me with arms wide open. So if I get a good opportunity my way, I would really be very happy to grab it.

We wish Aarti Chabria good luck for her career!
