Is Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 jinxed?

It seems very much as if the contenstants on the dance reality show on Colors are facing more trouble than in previous seasons. Has someone put the evil eye on the show?

First it was Salman Yusuf Khan, Isha Sharvani‘s choreographer. Then we heard about Bharti Singh’s bad back, made worse by her attempts to keep up with her fellow contestants on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5. Then we saw Karan Wahi in an arm brace, Gurmeet Choudhary with his arm bandaged and his choreographer Shampa with her ankle strapped and various other tales of pain evident on the faces and bodies of the celebrities who were learning not just how to dance, but also how to cope with the fallout of new movements. And finally, as a kind of climax, there was Isha’s injury, which probably ranks as one of the worst suffered on the sets of the dance reality show. While rehearsing for a number with one of the firangi choreographers – Jaymes from Las Vegas and Dancing with the Stars – Isha fell awkwardly and broke a bone in her elbow. Since she is a dancer, this has been devastating for the young actor, and she has smiled valiantly, obviously hopped up on magic pills to cut the pain, and pleaded for survival on the show. Whether she will stay or not, we do not know. Rumour has it that she is bowing out…

But this only makes us wonder, what is happening at Jhalak House? Yeah, we know standards are shooting higher with every episode, and each contestant is not only expected to push his or her body harder and reach new heights of excellence, but somewhere, sometime, someone needs to make sure that this does not go beyond limits, no? There has been talk about black magic – Raaz 3, anyone? – and evil eye spells and more, but all that seems a bit much to digest. Whatever the case, there is only so much an untrained dancer can do. And someone must draw that line. Soon.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    We in the UK are saddened to watch the spirit of JDL 5 session taken away in some mysterious jinx. We feel that something is not right. There was very little dancing exbibited. Acrobats and gymnastics ARE not considered dancing here in the UK. Footwork, placement of perfect body postures, expressions, dance parameters and dance content on the other hand is considered very relevant factors of dancing. MANY GOOD DANCERS WERE THROWN OUT OF THE COMPETITION BY THE PUBLIC, OR THE INDIAN VOTING. It is astonishing to see and watch that loss is imminent by introducing street dancing, hip hops, and rafta style dancing by Remo Desouza: These kind of dancing are NOT pure dancing. Further: FLAMENCO is thumping of ankels and toes, in fast rhythm with proper shoes – NOT what was shown by JDL contestants: As for dancing, PURITY and STYLE, CHARISMA and flair, are lost. PERHAPS THESE ADULTS NEED TO LEARN FROM DID, DID DANCE KE SUPERKIDS, they exhibited much more core dancing: Even there: Shalini who danced so beautifully was thrown out of competition….shame: culture and tradition of INDIAN heritage are being lost to VULGARITY.
