NO judges is the best part of Yeh Hai Jalwa - Prachi Desai
Your take on Yeh Hai Jalwa..
Yeh Hai Jalwa completely rocks. I simply love the concept. The celebrities have to mentor their team. Jhalak helped me a lot to improve my dancing skills and I love dancing, so I took up this project.

How did the selection process happen?
My team consists of five enthusiastic young college students. The production house selected 20 best dancers from the whole of and among whom I selected the best 5 to fom my 'Masti Ki Paatshala'..

With your busy schedule, how do you manage to rehearse with your team?
It’s really tough. I have the most hectic schedule. There is no fixed schedule for rehearsal because I have shooting and also the students have their college, thus we need to adjust our time. We haven’t had much of rehearsal time until now. We all love dancing and the best of all is that the students are very keen on working hard.

Unlike other reality shows, Yeh Hai Jalwa does not have a jury; what do you have to say about that?
This is the best part of Jalwa. We all had done reality shows prior to this, in which there was pressure by the judges. But as every coin has two sides, here we don’t have the judges, so no one is there to point out your mistakes and tell you where you’re going wrong, though this time there will only be celebrity judges and the audience ofcourse, to vote for us..

You are a Jhalak winner, so do you think there is an added pressure on you when it comes to winning Jalwa?
There is no pressure of winning, but yes there is a pressure of teaching students and also to do something different, I want to show more of the hidden talent in me that the audience have not see me doing, in Jhalak.

Who do you think is your biggest contender in the competition?
Everyone is a good dancer, so it’s very tough for me to pin down just one.

One message to your viewers..

I request all my fans on India Forums to vote for me.

KC @lilmoonprincess 15 years ago it's wrong to say that she will win only because of Ekta.. she is talented and she will win on her own merits.. just because she is liked by ekta doesn't mean that ekta is on her hands and foot all the time.. I mean does ekta control the entire (or even 70%) of India's population? can ekta make prachi a better dancer than the rest..?

did people ever think that she wins because of her talent and her popularity?? at such a young age she has been able to accomplish soo much.. things that people twice her age haven't even come close too.. for me.. i love her way of dancing, her determination to complete what she started and her down-to-earth attitude.. Even in JDJ NOT ONCE DID SHE COMPLAINTED TO THE JUDGES ABOUT HER MARKS OR COMMENTS.. in fact she answered all their critism with her dancing.. and within 3 weeks.. she was getting top scores and votes from the audience all over India..

I really hope that she wins this competition.. but regardless of what happens.. and even if she wins people will still think that she won due to ekta..

i am really getting tired of people not recognizing her talents and accepting the fact that she is talented as an actress and a dancer and works VERY VERY hard to accomplish what she started..

please next time.. put yourself in her shoes.. if you work really really hard at something and instead of appreciating your work others give someone else credits for it how would you feel???

not every good i suppose.. but prachi came up from all that and shined even more after it.. i am soo proud of her.. i hope to see more of her in the coming years..

luv pri

Sachin @sachugaikwad 15 years ago Read the interview. looks like prachi has too much confidence in herself.
She is not at all a good dancer but just an average dancer.The production house had selected 20 dancers. who is she to select the five? b'coz I know from friends in the serials, Prachi does not like talented people around her. She destroys their talent so that she can shine. This is very evident from the fact that when Anil kapoor yesterday(23rd march)show, praised a girl from the team who was an excellent dancer, Prachi's face turned red.
She is a calculative and sly operator, who wins such programms through her good contacts and manupilations. There should have been judges.
Hussain and team, and Rakhi team just rocks.Prachi's team might loose because of prachi's inability to dance.

Sangita @sangitadas 15 years ago Well this seems to be a fun show and the audience will vote. So best of luck prachi.

BTW someone mentioned PD won only cos of EK. Woner when did Ek vote for her so many times? As per the results that Sony delcared, PD got the highest number of votes, followed by Jay Bhanushali and then only Sandhya.

We may not like her coming back to the Show but at the end people voted and she won.
