VJ Andy is the first contestant to be eliminated today from the celebrity dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ season seven. Andy, 34, who was paired opposite choreographer Bhavani, said he never expected that he will be evicted from the show so soon.
“I never expected that my innings will be so short. I tried to give my best but I feel that I could not make it to the audience’s hearts. I had a little bit inhibitions since the beginning because my dance partner was completely new with no experience of reality show,” said Andy.
The Colors’s reality show sees 13 celebrity contestants perform various dances with professional choreographer partners and are being judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar, choreographers Remo D’Souza and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Apart from the new choreographer, Andy conceded that he misjudged people’s expectations from him. “People had huge expectations from me but I think I was not able to fulfill them because my two performances were lacking concepts. We also changed our performance last minute to bring some newness and I felt that was the final nail in the coffin,” he said.
Known for his unique antics in the last season of ‘Bigg Boss’, Andy thought that the talent hunt will help him make a comeback to dancing after his back injury.
“I started learning Kathak when I was in sixth grade, and contemporary dance during my college days. But 12 years ago, I had a back injury and left dance completely. Coming back to dance and shape was really tough for me,” he added.
Asked who has the maximum chances of winning the show, Andy said, “Sophie (Choudry). She is a fine dancer and her choreographer Deepak has many innovative concepts. Sophie has a huge fan following too.”
The video jockey, who had hosted shows like ‘Get Gorgeous’ and ‘Dare To Date’ in the past, said he will go back to anchoring again as he has got couple of offers in his kitty.
