Colors tv show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 5 Dancing with the stars is the much awaited show because of the big names associated with it. After all the 12 contestants of the show have been revealed, the channel has revealed the name of the 13th contestant, who rose to fame with his knowledge by sitting on the hot seat with Amitabh Bachchan in the earlier season of KBC.

Yes, he is Sushil Kumar who won the prize money of 5 crore in the last season of KBC. Sushil will be seen grooving on the floors of Jhalak.

Here's Sushil sharing his experience on being part of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.

What was the reason to take up the show?

I had always wanted to learn new things and when I was approached for Jhalak I decided to take up the show because I felt that I will get to learn new things with this platform.  

How are you preparing yourself for Jhalak?

I am practicing hard and I know that my choreographers are always there with me to get things right and help me learn easily.

Have you danced ever before in your life?

No, I haven't. I was the person who always used to hide when it came to dancing.  I don't know dancing at all. I haven't ever danced even in the marriage ceremonies in my family (laughs).

So, are you finding it difficult to learn?

As a beginner, I am finding it a little difficult to learn, but I am working hard and I know I can do it.

Are you well versed with the contestants on the sets?

Yes, I am well versed with all the contestants of the show. They all are like my good friends and they are very co-operative.  

You are going to tap your feet in front of the big names of the industry. Are you nervous?

Yes, a little bit! But, there's nothing to get nervous as I am a beginner and the judges know that I am a learner.

How has life changed after KBC?

Life has changed amazingly well after KBC. I am now easily getting recognized by the people and getting some of the wonderful opportunities.

You have a dream of becoming an IAS officer. How far have you reached in this journey?

I have given my exams this year but it was not satisfactory according to me so I am planning to have a go at it again. Hopefully it will go better next time.
