Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is in its ninth season. And going by the high standards Sony has set, it has become one of the biggest money spinners for the channel today. From production cost to participants, Jhalak stands among the best dance reality shows on Indian television currently. And like every year, this time too, the makers have roped in star value with actress Jacqueline Fernandez. Others on the panel of judges are filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer Ganesh Hegde. Apparently Farah Khan has also joined the trio henceforth, which we’ll see in this week’s episode. So what more is in store for the audience? A lot more, infact! To begin with, Bollywood’s Hero No. 1, Govinda will be the star guest on the show, as he will bring back the charm of the 90s with his iconic dance moves and charisma.
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is seeing celebs like Karishma Tanna, Surveen Chawla, Shantanu Maheshwari, Arjun Bijlani, Salman Yusuff Khan, Shakti Arora, Helly Shah and Nora Fatehi adding glamour with their starry participation. While others including Gaurav Gera and Chef Harpal Singh have been eliminated, this weekend we’ll bid adieu to one of the most handsome hunks on the show (we aren’t revealing the name though!). This week’s episode will be a memorable one for dancer and actor Shantanu Maheshwari. One of the most striking performers on the show will have a fanboy moment with his favourite actor Govinda. While he will dedicate his performance to the iconic actor by picking up his song ‘Husn Hai Deewana’, he will also get to shake a leg with Govinda in a special segment.
The episode will also see a sensuous performance from Karishma on ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’, a Barfi-inspired emotional act from Surveen, a belly dance from Norah and a retro-dance from Shakti. We also expect Arjun Bijlani, who has been struggling with his scores for the past few weeks, doing a romantic number. And so will Sidhant Gupta. We will even see Helly shedding some tears, recalling her bumpy ride on the show. Helly too has been one of the lowest scorers so far. But her hard work has kept her on the show. Check out a sneak-peek into this week’s episode.

Dancer Salman Yusuff, who has grown to be a celebrity on the show this time, shared a super exciting picture, where his team is making a human pyramid. He captioned it as, “It’s a heavy act .. That I can say for sure 😎 #jdj9 #jhalakhothai #salmanonjhalak @colorstv”. He will be doing an Holi-dance on Amitabh Bachchan’s blockbuster song ‘Rang Barse’. Let’s expect some festivities on the stage too.
Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan seems to be too excited to join team Jhalak. This is the first time she is appearing on the show. Farah took to her Instagram page to share several happy moments from her first day of shoot there.
While host Manish Paul continues to add his own punches to the show even this season, he was apparently signed for a whopping amount by the channel. Of course going by his impromptu gigs, anything could be less to bring him on board. Already looks like an exciting episode this weekend. Tune in your televisions already!
