Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa gets its finalists in Karan Singh Grover – Nicole, Gauhar Khan – Himanshu and Baichung Bhutia – Sonia, with one of the top favorites Hard Kaur and her partner Savio bowing out this week..
According to our source, "The result came as a shock to everyone, and it was very unfortunate that the show lost a consistent performer in Hard Kaur. The dance-off this week was between Gauhar and Hard Kaur".
Hard Kaur who had her first experience of dance-off round probably could not live up to the expectations of all. "She appeared nervous and could not give her cent percent to her performance. The judges also felt that her performance was not powerful enough for her to stay back", says our source.
On the other hand, Gauhar who has had her good as well as bad times in dance-off was the better performer on the day. "She was confident and that showed in her act. The judges were not happy to see the rapper going out; they even asked the production house to bring her back, or else they would go on a strike. Later, they had to be convinced that the format of the show could not be changed", states our source.
Hard Kaur and Savio gave their best performance before leaving the stage, on the number they had prepared for the Finale. "The duo performed on the song from Om Shanti Om, 'Jag Suna Suna Lage' and got a huge ovation", concludes our khabroo.
It was a great day for the footballer turned dancer Baichung Bhutia as he got the highest votes this week..
The battle lines are drawn now as the Grand Finale will be between the trio Karan Singh Grover, Gauhar and Baichung… May the best win!!!
