The Punar Vivah actor will pay tribute to three versions of the drunken hero in his performance tomorrow
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 is celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema and what better way to do it than honour three popular stars of Bollywood cinema in one go? Gurmeet Choudhary surely thinks so as that’s what he has chosen to do in tomorrow’s (June 23) episode. No, he won’t be dancing to the tunes of all the Khans. The Punar Vivah actor will portray Devdas, the iconic character whom three of our stars have essayed on screen. He and his choreographer Shampa will dance to songs from Dilip Kumar’s Devdas, Shahrukh Khan’s Devdas and Abhay Deol’s Dev.D. We’ve heard that Chalak chalak and Emotional atyachaar are two of the songs he has chosen for his performance. Looks like he has forgotten KL Saigal, the original Devdas. Isn’t that sad?
We’ve also heard that Karan Johar and Madhuri Dixit will try to recreate the magic of Raj Kapoor and Nargis in a special performance for JDJ 5. We doubt if it will work though. What do you think?
