Since BBC Productions Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa Season 7 is on the verge to begin, we spoke to this extremely talented and handsome actor Karan Tacker regarding his experience till now.

We have seen him portraying the guy next door in his daily soaps and doing justice to all the roles given to him, here in this exclusive and candid interview with him, he speaks about his nervousness, happiness and how fortunate he feels to be on a platform like Jhalak Dikhlaa Ja Season 7. 

This is what he had to say -

What made you opt for a show like Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 7?

I have dancing fear. I thought what better platform than Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 7 to take that fear out? By taking this up, I will learn dancing also and I will also get an opportunity to experience the journey of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. Go out and ask anyone who have been a part of Jhalak, does not matter whether they have won or not, all of them have the same opinion - it is an experience worth living. So that was my primary reason why I took up Jhalak. Drashti Dhami played a pivotal role in encouraging me to take up a challenge like this. She pushed me to do Jhalak. She was the first person whom I had called up because she was a part of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 6 and won it too and I was kind of baffled then. She said go for it, you will love!

How is your equation with dancing?

We are working for television. We are working for daily soaps. And there are times when we have to shoot for a song segment either for the show that we are doing or some award functions. For the daily soaps, we do not have proper rehearsals, no proper dance steps. We do not go to any rehearsal hall to practice for the dance sequence. We just flirt with dancing. But Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa is not flirting with dancing but it is fully marrying with dancing. Moreover, when you are dancing for entertainment, it is very different. You are trying to woo the audience. Here in Jhalak, you are trying to make yourself dance. You should not look like you are trying to dance; it should look like dance is just a part of your system. Dancing for Jhalak means you need to keep in mind the right technique, postures, body language, emotions. This is a very different kind of dancing. Because of Jhalak I am getting to learn more new things every day.

You'll have already shot for your first episode, how was the entire experience?

Umm... the entire experience was extremely overwhelming. On the day of my performance, I do not think I had spoken to anyone for the entire day. I did not speak to my family also. I just spoke to my dad and told him I was getting tickles on the back of my feet, I could feel my stomach making noise due to anxiety. Meri dil ki dhadkane wakaiye mein slow ho gayi thi. I could not feel my heartbeat. I felt like my pulse has suddenly dropped. Ek alag hi kisam ki khushi wali anxiety thi. I was very happy ki finally mein Jhalak Dikhlaja kar raha hu, mein finally dance kar raha hu. I will get an opportunity to give a one shot dance performance. Ek alag hi kisam ka pressure hoga. So I was enjoying all of this. But I was also very scared and nervous. Even while we were shooting it, I did not speak to anyone for a long time till my performance got over. I think its anxiety, its nervousness, its happiness.

By doing Jhalak, do you think you were re-discovering yourself?

I won't say that I am re-discovering myself; I think I will say I am discovering myself. Dance has never been a part of me. I have never been fond of dancing. I am one of those typical Punjabi baraati dancers. That is something totally different. I am on my way to discover myself as a dancer!

Who is your favorite judge among Madhuri Dixit Nene, Karan Johar and Remo Dsouza?

It is difficult to say who is my favorite judge because all three of them are very high level talented judges. And this time we also have an international judge with us who is a choreographer as well. I am extremely fortunate to dance in front of such prestige panel of judges because I will get to showcase my art in front of them.

If in case while Jhalak is on and meanwhile you get an offer of a show, will you take it up?

It is very difficult to say as of now. Let's see what happens in the future.

What was Krystle Dsouza' reaction when she came to know that you will be a part of this new Jhalak season?

Of course she was very happy. She is a very very close friend of mine. She is a well-wisher and she is like a family. She is just elated.
