Mir Ranjan Negi, the hockey coach with two left feet, when it comes to dancing, will have people's jaws drop when they watch his performance this week. He and his young partner Marischa come up with a performance that should win them the perfect ten from all three judges! It will be a first on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa… that too from Negi! The other dancers who pride themselves on their moves will surely have sleepless nights wondering if a certain Mr. Negi is going to walk away with the show this season. Mr. Negi is probably living the best time of his life after years of pain and despair. He sure is dancing away his blues!
Negi and Marischa did a judgalbandi on the song "Khaike paan banaras wala", where the coach turned into a Rajasthani - Marwar puppet and Marischa a punk girl...says Mr. Negi, "At first, I was apprehensive to do this act, but Marischa insisted that we do something different and surprising, I have watched Shahrukh Khan's film - Paheli 3 -4 times to get the puppet act right (Shahrukh does a puppet dance in the film) to give this performance."
The 3 judges are all praises for Mr Negi's new energy and zing, immediately after the performance, Shiamak Davar joins the couple on stage and hugs Mr. Negi in appreciation. Urmila gives a standing ovation and Jeetendra is all claps for the hockey star.
A source also tells us 'The song was given to the couple 2 days later than everyone else, yet Negi & Marischa have outdown other couples on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'.
Watch out for his performance this Friday, November 1 at 9.00 p.m. only on Sony Entertainment Television.
It's been weeks since Mika has smiled all through his performance. This week with his performance, Mika has made the judges proud and also his loyal fans. He got really serious with his dancing, and to the delight of all on the sets danced beautifully, with the kind of energy expected of Mika. The jugalbandi was in sync, he was immaculately dressed and the song he danced to simply went well with Mika: "You and I let's go balle balle…" Studio audience also saw Mika rehearse with his partner way before the shoot started. Everything to prove that Mika is a changed man on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa…What had the judges and the audience in splits was when judge Urmila Matondkar was trying to tell something to Mika, the never-say-die Mika chirpily told the diva: "Whatever you say to me sounds like 'I love you' to me." Well, a shocked Urmilla was speechless but for Mika he always wants to have the last word!
Watch Mika do the balle balle, this Friday, November 2 at 9.00 p.m. only on Sony Entertainment Television.
