, the quiet and shy guy has really come of age in Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa
, and he proved it again this week in the Semi Final round.
The contestants had to perform on two acts this week, and Baichung walked away with all praise for his performances..
According to our source, "For the Tapori act, Baichung chose the number 'Dekha Jo Tuje Yaar' and did a marvelous job. In this round, the choreographer had to be used as a mere prop with no support coming from them for the act. And it was amazing to see the footballer dance the way he did. The judges were forced to say that 'Tapori jhaag gaya' as they showered him with 29 points".
"The second act had the theme of following the fast forward, rewind, pause and stop while dancing. Baichung danced on 'Kabhi Kabhi Aditi', but forgot few steps to begin with. But after that he managed to pick up and danced very well. The judges who had earlier complained that Karan danced very less when compared to Nicole in this round were happy and convinced with Baichuung's towering performance. This act gave him 27 points, taking his total tally to 56", adds our source.
Well, Baichung has nothing to lose as he has found a big support and well wisher in last year's contestant and fellow sportsperson, Mir Ranjan Negi
. "Negi cheers for his sporting counterpart so much so that his support is not just lip service. Mrs Negi was showing Madhuri Bhutia the number of votes they have been sending for Baichung!", states our khabroo from the sets.
Well, the other three contestants are sure to get a jolt with Baichung's steady performances..Reporter and Author: Srividya Rajesh
