Sony Entertainment Television’s celebrity dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, will take you on a nostalgic ride this weekend as it welcomes the timeless Bollywood beauty, Meenakshi Sheshadri. The special episode, titled 'Marzi Meenakshi Ki,' will mark the celebration of Meenakshi Sheshadri's illustrious 40-year journey in the film industry. As a part of this week’s theme, the contestants will perform Meenakshi's favourite songs, promising a heartwarming episode with the perfect blend of nostalgia, entertainment, and stunning dance performances.
A dominant presence in the sports world, wrestler Sangeeta Phogat has enthralled everyone with her captivating performances. This week, she will showcase her journey through her act, with choreographer Bharat Ghare, performing on the songs, ‘Zindagi Har Kadam Ek Nai Jung’ and ‘Ae Watan’. To make this performance a memorable one for Sangeeta, her husband, freestyle wrestler and Olympic medalist, Bajrang Punia, will grace the show to support her.
Impressed by Sangeeta's transformation from the akhada to the dance floor, Judge Farah Khan said, “Bharat, first of all, congratulations. You conceptualized this so well; there's such perfection in the details, and Sangeeta, you've become such a confident dancer now. When you first came, you were so timid, but now I feel like if you go to the Olympics, you'll do wrestling as a dancer, and that will be a great advantage. Because you'll become light-footed, there's a rhythm in your body language. It was flawless.”
Adding to the compliments, Judge Arshad Warsi said, “Such outstanding performances receive a standing ovation. Sangeeta, initially, I felt like you were a wrestler. Then gradually, you started to look like a dancer. And now, you appear like an actor. The level of expression was so good; a seasoned actor gives those deep emotional expressions. And today, you've given such accurate expressions. You've turned India’s daughter into a dancer. Sangeeta, you've danced very well, like a professional dancer. It was a beautiful performance and you've progressed so much from the start until now. Well done.”
In a heartwarming gesture, Meenakshi will extend her blessings to Sangeeta and Bajrang Punia by presenting them with shawls. Adding a cultural touch to the occasion, Sangeeta Phogat will perform the traditional Vijay Tilak ceremony for Bajrang Punia, who is gearing up to represent India at the Olympics.
