Colors unveils 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10' release date
The tenth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has been making headlines, thanks to its magnificent line-up of confirmed contestants. Now, the makers have further amped up the excitement and released a new promo, putting a seal on the premiere date. This year, the show will be judged by filmmaker Karan Johar and actors Nora Fatehi and Madhuri Dixit Nene.
Why does this story matter?
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is modeled along the lines of its western counterparts: Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing With the Stars. This season is even more special since it marks the reality show's return after a five-year-long hiatus. The ninth season (2016) was won by Teriya Magar and Aryan Patra, and judged by Karan Johar, filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan, actor Jacqueline Fernandez, and choreographer Ganesh Hegde.
The reality show will begin from September 3
In the promo posted by Colors TV on their social media pages, Dixit Nene can be seen shaking a leg with contestant Amruta Khanvilkar. The duo looks resplendent and Khanvilkar does well at matching steps with Dixit Nene, a bonafide dancing maestro. The channel has also announced that the show will air on Colors TV every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00pm from September 3.
