While Colors' much talkable show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 8 is all set for its kick start this weekend, there are contestants who are juggling between shows and taking out time for the rehearsals as well. One of those is our lovable Simar aka Dipika Kakar who is all excited for showing her Jhalak as a dancer on the reality show.
We got in conversation with the actress to know about her passion for dance, how is she managing time between daily soap to reality show and much moreâ€¦
Earlier you have never participated in any reality shows, so why Jhalak Dikhla Jaa?
I love dancing even though I am not trained and hence Jhalak will be my training ground to learn dance. I see it like an intense dance workshop and sine I love dance; I am really looking forward to it.
You have gained lot of appreciation for your acting skills, and now you will be showcasing your dance talent. How are you preparing for it?
I am trying my best to balance between acting and dancing by shooting in the day time for Sasural Simar Ka while I rehearse as much as I can in the nights. I am trying to be a good student and learn the most I can from my choreographer.
Will it be difficult for you to manage your daily soap Sasural Simar Ka with Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa?
It's going to be a challenge but I am up for challenges as that's when one can learn the most.
Talking about the Judging panel, to whose comment are you looking forward to?
I am looking forward to the comments from all our judges and dance gurus because each has their own specialty. While Shahid is an actor and a tremendous dancer, Ganesh is a choreographer while Karan has mastered the art of direction as well as acting and choreographer. Lauren on the other hand was one of us just a few seasons back so she understands the pressures of being a contestant. Each judge and mentor plays a crucial role. I'm looking forward to Lauren Gottlieb and Ganesh Hegde helping us as gurus while Karan Johar and Shahid Kapoor will be judging us.
What would you like to say about your fellow contestants, who are the toughest one according to you?
It's way too early to figure out who our toughest competitors are. I would rather just compete with myself!
Lastly, what are your expectations from the show?
I am expecting to learn a lot and enjoy myself! My two main motives for doing Jhalak is to learn dance and have a great time while learning!
TellyBuzz wishes Dipika a very good luck for her new show!
