The news is out that Hanif Hilal has been indisposed due to a ligament tear in his leg and will not be able to partner Gauhar Khan anymore in Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
Telly Buzz brings you more on this.
According to our source, "Hanif's ligament tear has gotten very bad and is now advised complete bed rest by his doctor. He performed for this Friday episode with one leg and that actually worsened his condition".
After this, Gauhar was given an option by the unit to continue with Hanif as choreographer and take another dancer into the team. But it is heard that she refused to do so, and opted for a new choreographer instead.
We called up Hanif who seemed very dejected with Gauhar's behavior, "It is her decision, and this show is all about celebrities and not their choreographers. She may be a super model, but I am confident of myself and I know that I have given 100% to whatever I have done on the Jhalak floor. And I also believe that whatever happens, is for good. I am feeling sad because I cannot dance here and will not be able to showcase my talent. Gauhar had never been my friend; whatever relation we have in future will purely be on a professional level, and in future I promise myself that I will never dance with Gauhar".
Even though, Hanif will not partner Gauhar anymore there would be a twist in the tale if she ends up being in the Bottom Two this Saturday. "If Gauhar needs to perform in the Face-Off this Saturday, she will then have to perform with Hanif who had partnered her for the Friday's episode. So in such a condition, if Hanif refuses to dance with her, she will be eliminated from the show on basis of non-performance", explains our source in detail.
So will Hanif get a chance to have the last laugh? We asked Hanif how he would react if Gauhar makes it to the Dace-off this time. "If the channel calls me, I will definitely perform with her. I will not backstab her; I am a complete professional", states Hanif.
Well, with Hanif out, Jhalak House will indeed miss all the spice that used to cook between Hanif and Gauhar!!
