Their first two performance did not impress the judges Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Terence Lewis and Sajid Khan. So will the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai reel and real life couple be eliminated?
Nach Baliye 6 has a motley crew of contestants. The dance reality show seems to gearing up for some dhamekedaar action, as an unusual group battles for the trophy. There are fabulous performers like Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhury (he won Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, remember?), Asha Negi and Rithvik Dhanjani, Bruna Abdullah and Omar Farooque and Riddhi Dogra and Raqesh Vashith, as well as the amazing couple Raksha and Vinod Thakur and Masterchef Ripu Daman Handa and Shivangi Verma. And then there are the not-quite-dancers in Raju Srivastav with patni Shikha and Kiku Sharda and his biwi Priyanka. Telly stars Amrapali Gupta and Yash Sinha and Lata Sabharwal and Sanjeev Seth (who play husband and wife on Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai) and Kanika Maheshwari and construction magnate husband Ankur Ghai. They are all having to work very hard to get positive remarks from the judges – Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Terence Lewis and Sajid Khan – because standards are set much higher this year, wethinks.
Of course there is really good dancing. Ripu and Shivangi have already won high marks, as have Debina and Gurmeet. And there is non-dancing as well, as with Raju and Shikha. But since it is a contest, somebody has to lose at some point. And we hear that eliminations have already begun. The first to go, our little buddy the birdie chirps quietly, will be TV’s favourite maa-bauji, Lata and Sanjeev, but we can confirm that only after we watch the show on the weekend. Until then, we wait to find out whether Akshara’s mum and dad will manage to dance their way into the vote bank or not!
