Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6: Are Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar playing favourites?

We aren’t making any judgements, but that’s what the contestants seem to believe…

The Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 contestants aren’t quite happy with their judges – Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar. We hear that a few of the celebrities on the show are miffed, believing that the three judges are being biased towards fellow contestant Drashti Dhami and her choreographer Salman Yusuff Khan. Want to know why?

Besides the dance show, Drashti is also part of the popular Colors soap Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon and hence the favouritism, the rumour whispers. Irked by the whole scenario, one participant said, “I am working very hard, but this season is somewhat weird. There is so much promotion happening around Drashti. For example, the Colors’ website only promotes the Madhubala actress’ mesmerising performances. Even on air last week, for a few hours leading up to the show, only the promos of Drashti’s performance were shown. Why were we ignored? Are we not good enough?”

Apparently the contestants don’t want to upset the channel honchos or the production house, which is why they haven’t been vocal about the judges being unfair. Besides Drashti, Shaan too is on his co-contestants’ hate list, as his performances have been nothing extraordinary and yet he is a consistently high scorer. What puzzles us is the silence on Lauren Gottlieb, who has been part of Remo’s dance film ABCD and almost always scores a perfect 30 – but then she is a fabulous dancer, too, no!

Looks like Madhuri, Remo and Karan have got a lot more to deal with than just judging dance performances this season!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Drashti deserve praise poor Contestants are jealous ….anyway continue to work hard..

    • Meena

      Their dances r good n the last was to good. It’s really hard work for salman n drashti.


    what rubbish , this is totally false.maybe shaan is favored but drashti isn’t favored at all.

  • Mana G

    i think they are playing favourites.also i dunt think its quite fair to put estb dancers like laureen and mukti in the show with non dancers and expect to do tremenduos.Also , i feel they are biased giving choreographer as well.

    • Amukrish

      Absolutely. Lauren is fit to be a choreographer. She has even trained Tom Cruise. As such she being a contestant is not fair to others

  • Suhani

    Big deal ..!

    Anyways amongst contestants Drashti has the best screen presence , dances decently and more importantly pulls audience . Why wouldnt the channel and judges favor her ?
    And the rest especially Karan and Shweta have been suh disappointments . Who else will get attention if not Drashti ?

  • snehal

    drishti deserve this troffy and we will praise for her

  • Thaathi

    If judges were favoring Drashti, she would get 30 every week. Lauren is a professional dancer, she won some international dance show even. I think its obvious that judges have to be a little more strict with her as all dance styles are easy for her. Yet, no one complains about it. I thought JDJ was for non dancing celebrities till this season. And Drashti is not only the face of Colors. Sid AKA Shiv is the lead of Colors most popular show Balika Vadhu. If there is any type of favourism, its towards Lauren not Drashti. Plus, Mukti is now in the show. She is a professional too. I think some contestants are jealous cause Drashti gets high votes as she is a popular star.

  • Haha

    Pity on u contestants that u r using these crazy powers to eliminate drashti
    I really pity u

  • nixi

    Dis is all rubbish
    Drashti works actually d hardest among all d contestents. She actually deserve to win……by d way if such is d case then why lauren is here. After winning a dance show she should hav came here as a coreographer but not as a contestent…..
    Only drashti deserves to win…..
    Love u drashti and salman

  • arya

    It is obvious that the judges have Dhrashti as their favourite.any act of hers gets nothing less than 9 or 10 from judges.

    The BEST are the KIDS and even they dont get 10 every time.
    It is one of the most biased JHALAK season so far.

  • aray

    They are obviously playing favourites.The KIDS ARE BEST .D.D. keeps getting 9 and 10 marks for performances suitable for a

    CIRCUS.This is a dance competition not CIRCUS.

  • ibrahim

    drishti deserve this troffy and we will praise for her

  • ibrahim

    drishti deserve this troffy and we will praise for her soon she will win

  • Yatri

    Special to karan johar,
    my mom is love u & 23rd aug her birthday,so i m request u plz,karansir ur wish her…
    i m promised her i will giveu Special surprise for her,so plz….

  • nina

    I find this show is bias how come lauren always gets 30 every time.
    This show is for non dancers. Lauren is dancer should not have been allowed to compete. I have nothing against Lauren she is a good dancer but nothing extra so much publicity for what reason.
    We would not have seen such reaction for a east indian dancing in America or England dancing show.
    The show should never be bias in giving marks. Winner of this show will not be just.
    I would not want to see this show on colours again.

  • Amukrish

    In fact I feel they are biased towards Lauren more. Two or three dances of her (contempory) many steps were repeated and even their Michael Jackson dance was not very amusing but still got 30

  • simi

    Not only this season was biasdd but all seasons of jdj was biased I think the kids or lauren was most deserving but I know it drashti will win when shoe starts ……….her many performances was soo bad still she gets 9 ……..and about lauren dancer jdj bringd one goood dancer in all seasons like last season there was ekta she was also full tained n best dancer same rule goes wwith lauren
