As they say, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Well, it looks
like in the small screen industry, men tend to cast a spell with their
magnificent voice, while women dance their way in to the hearts of the
audience. The trend set up by Abhijeet Sawant
who won the first ever
Indian Idol continues even today, while Mona Singh set the cards
rolling by winning Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season One.
Many talented girls tried to give their best in Indian Idol 2 and 3 to
make it to the final round, but in vain. Sandeep Acharya
Tamang bagged the winning titles, while their toughest competitors,
Karunya and Amit Paul
shared their side of fame and fortune as well.
The same was with Debojit Saha
in SaReGaMaPa Challenge 2005 where he
won after a tough fight against Vinit Singh.
The same was with But alas, the girls got lost in the crowd.
When it comes to Dance shows, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa witnessed tough
competition between Sweta Salve and Mona Singh in the finale, while
Mridul and Prachi Desai
battled against each other in the race
to Talent Vs Popularity. Though Jay Bhanushali
made it to the finale,
the competition was evident between the ladies, in which Prachi was
chosen by the 'Junta', while Sandhya
was appreciated the most for her
For now, it surely looks like girls have made the world spin with their
exotic salsa moves, and the audience has fallen head over heals for the
men and their sound of music. Will this trend break? Can we see men
dance into our hearts and girls taking away the singers’ trophy?
We will surely have to look forward to the next season of Jhalak Dikhla
Jaa and Indian Idol for that.., and of course, wait with bathed breath
for the new Musical and Dance Reality Shows that might rewrite history!!
