Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10
has garnered a lot of appreciation from audiences since its grand premiere last week. The popular dance reality show has returned to the small screen after a five-year hiatus with Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Nora Fatehi serving as judges for the 10th season.


Among the 12 celebrities participating in the TV show Colors, Gashmeer Mahajani and Amruta Khanvilkar are featured as two of the strongest contenders. Note that the latter received a standing ovation from the judges for her first performance in the episode of the big premiere. Despite being told she had a strong chance of making it to the final, Gashmeer spared no effort to impress the judges and viewers with her stupendous dance performances.


In this weekend’s episode, viewers got to see Gashmeer and Amruta engage in fierce competition. Khanvilkar, who has been performing for years, revealed that she has never performed a dance number in four-inch heels until now. However, she managed to up her dance game this week by taking on the challenge of stepping out of her comfort zone and performing the New York Street Style dance form, “Voguing” and “Waacking.”

Amruta opened up about overcoming her fear of dancing in heels and said, “Although I am not trained in dance, dancing has been an important part of my acting journey. My forte is Indian dancing, however, wearing four inch heels and performing in front of my idol Madhuri Dixit and the esteemed judges was one of the most petrifying moments of my life. I was scared and nervous before going on stage, but my choreographer partner Pratik Utekar gave me the confidence to try a new dance form. While playing voguing and waacking takes some energy and courage, and I believe I did my best to do this style justice.
