Talking about being on Jhalak DJ Suketu said :
I have always worked with music directors and remixed songs from the point of view of someone singing but here the song selection is from a dancing standpoint. I have been closely watching the few past episodes of Jhalak to understand which remix style will suit the contestants. It is a really different experience working closely with the choreographers.
I am quite excited about this – remixing for live dancing. Dancing to live music is technically very difficult as the tempo is increased. All the songs have been paced up and it is going to be a challenge not just for the contestants and choreographers but for me too. Just how they can't miss a step on any beat, I can't miss any beat while remixing as it will spoil the whole act and there is no way we can stop in between and do a retake.
Though I have done shows with Shaan for instance, it's very different to do an act with him where he will be dancing instead of singing.
My parents watch Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa regularly and are very excited about Jhalak approaching me.
The following contestants also spoke about the next week's theme :
Shaan (Shantanu Mukherjee): I am a non-dancer and the thought of even participating in a dance show was very scary initially. Whatever I have achieved on the show over the past few weeks has been only because of Marisha's belief in me and non-stop rehearsals. But now, dancing to live music is an altogether a different ball game. Dancing on the spot is going to be very tricky, but I have full faith in Marisha and I'm sure she'll teach me how to pull this off as well with confidence, like she always has!
Lauren Gottlieb: Jhalak never fails to surprise me. Every week there is something new and challenging thrown at us. This week's challenge is again unique. We will be dancing on the tunes of a DJ playing live music. We will have to adapt to the music he is playing and it will surely make for a power packed episode.
Usually we think of a concept and a dance form then look for songs that match. But this week is the other way around where the DJ will give us a song with his personal flavor and we will have to come up with the concept and dance style from there.
Sana Saeed: Every week we have something new in Jhalak as last time we had the dance marathon along with our own act and this time we have to dance on a live mix by DJ Suketu. I have been dancing on DJ Suketu's remixes in my college days but this time when I will dance on his remix I will be judged on it.
