Fans of Shakti Arora will be mighty disappointed. Yes, news coming in from the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 say that the actor has been eliminated from the show. He did a traditional dance form as part of his last performance. Shakti has been in the bottom three since many weeks now but was always escaping eviction. A non-dancer, he had been training quite hard for the celebrity dance reality show. His partner was Suchitra Sawant. It should be noted that he had to let go off Naagin 2 for this show. Shakti, who rose to fame playing Ranveer in Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi was one of the first choices for Jhalak season nine. The actor, however, took his time before he signed up for the show. We had seen him dancing on many award shows and specials but this is the first time he took part in a competition like this. It was a fabulous journey for Shakti who also shook a leg with his dad on the show.
On Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, we saw him giving a contemporary dance performance on Gerua. He also did an act inspired by Kishore Kumar's iconic Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si. The judges appreciated the fact that he always tried something different on the show. His first act was also lauded because he proved that he was damn confident. Shakti also shook a leg in drag when he did the lavani last week. It wowed Riteish Deshmukh who said he was too good. We are sure fans of Shakti will be extremely disappointed with this news.
This leaves Karishma Tanna, Shantanu Maheshwari and Salman Yusuff Khan amongst the original set of participants. The children Spandan Chaturvedi, Gracy Goswami and Teriya Magar will make a comeback on the show. Siddharth Nigam is also emerging as a strong contender. Shakti seemed very happy on the show as he shared snaps with Jacqueline Fernandez and Katrina Kaif.
In fact, there was buzz that he was the pre-determined winner of the show. This was speculated on the basis of the fact that Colors actors have won every time they took part on Jhalak. People were giving examples of Drashti Dhami and Ashish Sharma. We really hope that Shakti comes back on the show as a wild card. The cute actor has a legion of fans in Indonesia where his show Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi is being aired now.
