The popular dance reality show is back with its seventh season and like every year the dancing pairs look promising. Not just that each jodi has its own USP and a distinct quality that sets them apart from the rest. Read on to find out…

Palak and Kruti: Kiku Sharda had us eagerly awaiting his Jhalak appearance when he declared that he will be performing as his Comedy Nights with Kapil character Palak throughout the show. He has been paired with choreographer Kruti Mahesh who also participated in The Dancing Superstar and Dance India dance before JDJ7. This is one jodi we are looking forward to the most this season.

Sukhwinder Singh and Bhavna: The singer-performer has mesmerised us with his soulful singing for years now but will the Chaiyya Chaiyya singer have the same effect through his dance moves? Sukhwinder will be seen jiving with choreographer Bhavna in JDJ7, who was earlier seen making the Sasural Genda Phool actor Jay Soni dance in a previous season. We are waiting for JDJ7 to commence and look forward to this jodi rocking the dance-floor.

Andy and Bhavini: The Bigg Boss 7 contestant will be seen showing off his performance skills opposite Bhavini Misra the ace contemporary dancer and choreographer in this season. VJ Andy has made an impact on his fans due to his spontaneity, exuberance and his colourful personality. We can’t wait to watch him on the Jhalak floor!

Sophie Choudry and Deepak: The VJ-actor-singer-performer who loves to dance claims that she has never worked this hard in her life to learn different dance forms and she absolutely loves the opportunity Jhalak has provided her to take her dancing skills a notch higher! The stunning seductress will be performing with and training under choreographer Deepak who won the 2007 Jhalak season with partner Prachi Desai. Will Sophie and Deepak manage to win over the audience with their talent and charm, we shall find out soon!

Purab Kohli and Mohena: The Jal actor is known for his witty sense of humour but not so much for his dancing abilities. In this season he will be seen grooving to choreographer Mohena’s instructions who was previously seen as the substitute choreographer opposite Balika Vadhu actor Siddharth Shukla in an earlier season. Will this duo manage to enchant the audience and rock the dance floor, follow JDJ7 to find out.

Mouni Roy and Punit: Last seen as Sati in Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev, this sultry Bong beauty will be seen shaking her leg under close guidance of her mentor Punit. She proved her effortless dancing skills in the JDJ7 promo video and had us mighty impressed too! Her choreographer for the season is a sea of talent and was seen in previous seasons opposite Lauren Gottlieb and Anushka Manchanda in the previous seasons. He was also a participant in Dance India Dance and starred in Parabhudeva’s ABCD: Any Body Can Dance. Will Mouni be his lucky charm this time around, wait and find out!

Sreesanth and Sneha: The ex-cricketer who got embroiled in a match-fixing controversy is attempting to make a comeback for his fans in this season of Jhalak. Sreesanth is known for his break dance and hopefully he will be seen performing a variety of dance forms in this season. Accompanying him is the lovely Salsa queen Sneha who was earlier paired with Karanveer Bohra in a previous season. This jodi is one of the most promising one due to their immense dancing potential.

Ashish Sharma and Shampa: We have seen and loved Shampa in previous Jhalak seasons because of her ability to make almost anyone dance with perfection! Not just that the pretty choreographer also won two seasons of Jhalak with partners Sushant Singh Rajput and Gurmeet Chaudary. She will now be seen guiding Rangrasiya actor Ashish on the dance floor. Shampa is known to have surprised the audience with her amazing ability to make those contestants dance whom you would least expect to fare well on the floor. Will she take away the trophy this time as well; well, that will be revealed only in Jhalak’s seventh installment.

Kritika Kamra and Savio: The Kuchh Toh Log Kahenge actor will be paired opposite choreographer Savio in this season of the dance reality show. Kritika has also participated in a dance reality show title Zara Nachke Dikha before Jhalak whereas Savio was earlier seen in previous seasons of JDJ opposite Na Aana Iss Des Laaddo actor Megha Malik and comedian Bharti. Will the duo emerge as winners in this season, keep watching this space to find out.

Pooja Bose and Rajit: The Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna actor will be seen flaunting her dance skills opposite choreographer Rajit Dev. The Bong babe has performed dance numbers in her Bengali films before but will her pairing sizzle the Jhalak stage, only time will tell.

Shakti Mohan and Tushar: The celebrated contemporary dancer who won Zee TV’s dance show Dance India Dance Season 2 will be seen grooving this season alongside choreographer Tushar Kalia. We wonder why Shakti needs a choreographer to train under for JDJ7 when she can easily choreograph her dance items herself. Probably just to follow the format of the show. We have high hopes from this duo.

Akshat Singh and Vaishnavi: They are the Darsheel Safary-Avneet Kaur of this season! This kiddo duo is more special than the previous child jodis because none of the kid celebs have appeared on the Ellen Degeneres Show like Akshat has. And guess what for? For his super-awesome dancing skills, of course! The dancing sensation shot to fame after uploading his videos on Youtube wherein he would perform in true-blue Bollywood style to a variety of songs. Akshat’s choreographer Vaishnavi has made an appearance in the dance reality show DID Li’l Masters. Will this pair of children take away the Jhalak trophy this season, we will find out soon.
