Filmmaker Karan Johar, who will be one of the judges in the fifth season of the dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa", says although he is not a dancer, his experience behind the screen has made him understand what dance is all about.

"One of the large parts of filmmaking is song and dance in India. I have shot about 50 songs, lavishly. Dance is a big part of our cinema. It is not about the finer nuance and the grammar of dance, it's about the energy and passion you bring to your performance," the 40-year-old said here at the launch of the new edition Thursday.

Karan will be joined by dancing diva Madhuri Dixit and choreographer Remo D'Souza on the judges panel.

"While Remo is the master of his craft and Madhuri is a master executor, I think I will just talk about the concept and the energy that the performing artists bring to the table. So it's not about 'begaani shaadi mein abdullah deewana', this abdullah is no deewana, trust me," he added.

Meanwhile, Karan also stated that he has strict instructions from his mother, Hiroo Johar, against dancing.

"I have been instructed by my mother that she will not allow me to enter the home if I dance on the show. So at the risk of losing my home, house and my next meal, I may have to stop and bind my feet together and I request Madhuri and Remo to just pull me down everytime I want to dance," said Karan.

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5" goes on air June 16 and it will see see Bhojpuri star Ravi Kishan, TV actor Gurmeet Chaudhary, "Balika Vadhu" actress Pratyusha Banerjee, cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya, ghazal maestro Talat Aziz, child artist Darsheel Safari, Giaa Manek aka Gopi bahu, standup comedian Bharti Singh, Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani, singer Shibani Dandekar, television anchor Archna Vijaya and veteran television and theatre personality Jayati Bhatia dancing for the tile.
