The makers of the show have replaced trained dancer Eijaz Khan with former India skipper Krishnamachari Srikkanth, who doesn’t know the ABCD of dance in the sixth season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa
The cricketer will make his entry on the dance reality show in the coming weekend.
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and sports are closely connected and the cricketer is taking this relationship forward. “I am completely zero when it comes to dancing. What is dance? It is just when you are in a good mood, you just start jiving to a rhythm… you start moving and your body starts shaking. That is what it is,” said the former cricketer.
He is expected to make his appearance this weekend. So far quite a few sportsmen have taken to the Jhalak… stage. In the first season, cricketer Ajay Jadeja grooved on the stage, followed by hockey player and coach Mir Ranjan Negi in the second season. Senior cricketer Mohinder Amarnath shook a leg in the third season, and footballer Baichung Bhutia won the third season.
Boxer Akhil Kumar was part of the fourth season, while Sri Lankan cricket skipper Sanath Jayasuriya was seen in the last season of the show. Srikkanth will be replacing Eijaz Khan who couldn’t be a part of the show due to an injury. While we’ll miss Eijaz, we are absolutely sure that cricketer-commentator Srikknath will do his best to entertain us, no?
