I am competing with myself: Jhalak finalist Gurmeet

Gurmeet Choudhary,who wowed audiences with his Mahadev act with choreographer Shampa,says he is quite hopeful about winning the show.

Dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’ finalist Gurmeet Choudhary,who is pitted against TV actors Rithvik Dhanjani and Rashmi Desai for the trophy,says he is competing with himself and giving his best for it.

The 28-year-old actor,who wowed audiences with his Mahadev act with choreographer Shampa,says he is quite hopeful about winning the show.

“I have really worked hard for the show as it’s tough for me to strike a balance between my daily soap and ‘Jhalak’. I made my mark from the very beginning of the show. I am very happy with the kind of experiences I have gone through. I have never competed with anybody and my competition is with myself,” said Gurmeet.

The grand finale of the fifth season of the dance reality show is on September 30,where actress Sridevi will appear to promote her new film ‘English Vinglish’.

“I have given my 200 per cent for my finale performance. It’s a melange of many dance forms. I am quite excited to perform in front of the beautiful Sridevi ji. She is one of my favourite actresses,” he said.

Having learnt many new forms like hip-hop or break dance on the show,Gurmeet,who shot to fame with the 2008 TV series ‘Ramayan’,says they have helped him evolve as an actor but he will not repeat himself in the same avatar.

“I have always tried to do new things in life. I took up Jhalak because coming from a non-dancing background I wanted to learn it. I chose to do the role of Lord Ram when people were not doing mythological roles. In my performances also,I have tried to bring variations each time,” he said.

The actor,who has become a household name with his character of Yash in ‘Punar Vivah’,says he has got many film offers during the show but he refused to divulge any details about them.
