JHALAK DIKHHLA JAA 5: Sushil Kumar eliminated

The KBC 5 winner is the sixth contestant to leave the show

Sushil Kumar’s run in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 has come to an end. Sushil, who impressed the nation with his knowledge on Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 last year, says he is happy with his stint on the show and he’s a more confident dancer now, but he’ll never dance on a show again!

“My stage fear has completely vanished after Jhalak…. and I am much more confident person now,” he said. “I didn’t know how to dance before this show happened. During the rehearsals, I used to write the steps on paper and learn them. There were steps where I had to kneel down or jump, something which was very difficult for me. I didn’t even know the name of the dance forms that I have performed on the show, but still I worked hard and I am happy with my stint. I never came with the intention to win the show,” he revealed. “I hadn’t ever thought that I would be able to meet well-known celebrities like Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D’souza. I consider myself lucky that I was able to perform in front of them and interact with them.” Asked if given a chance, would he like to be a part of any other reality shows in future, he said: “I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I am definitely not dancing anymore.” Except at weddings! The 27-year-old computer operator used to hide away whenever he was asked to shake a leg at family weddings and functions, but not anymore. Instead, he is inspiring his friends to learn dance. Well done, Sushil!
