Madhuri Dixit to judge Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4

New Delhi, Nov 26, (PTI):

Bollywood's original dancing diva Madhuri Dixit has been missing from the big screen for some time now but the actress is staging a comeback to the world of showbiz as a celebrity judge on television.

Last seen in 'Aaja Nachle' which was a box office dud, the 43-year-old actress will be seen assessing other celebs on the fourth season of dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa', which is the Indian adaptation of US show 'Dancing With The Stars'.

"Since dance is my passion and this show is associated with that, I thought of taking it up. It took me some time to say yes. After I went to Los Angeles and saw how 'Dancing With The Stars' was being shot, I was finally convinced about accepting this offer," said Madhuri at the launch of the Sony show in the capital last night.

The 'Dhak Dhak' girl will have choreographer Remo D'Souza for company on the judges' panel and although the third judges' name has not been revealed, rumours are rife that star choreographer Saroj Khan might come on board.


"I don't know yet, thats up to Sony. But it'll be great for me if Sarojji becomes the third judge. I'll keep my fingers crossed," said Madhuri, who has danced to Khan's tunes in hit songs like 'Channe Ke Kheth' and 'Ek Do Teen'.

As a judge, the actress says she will be looking at the grace, poise and the attitude of the contestants and leave the technical details to her co-judges.

"The participants in the show are well-known in their own fields. They are people who are ambitious and will give in their best to win the challenge they have taken up. I will be looking at how they project themselves and bring in their personalities in their performance," said Madhuri.

The mother of two, who moved to the US post marriage is in India for three months to shoot for the reality show and is also looking at scripts in the meantime.

'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' will go on air from December 13.
