Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit says among all her co-stars, she found it toughest to groove with Jackie Shroff. And it wasn't so because he had two left feet.

During the shooting of the forthcoming grand finale of dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5", judge Karan Johar made co-judge Madhuri, and special guest Sridevi, go through a rapid fire round, said a source.

He asked them: "Which co-star was the most difficult to dance with - Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff or Sunny Deol?" Sridevi played safe and named her brother-in-law Anil, and said: "Anilji is family, so I don't think he will mind if I take his name."

Madhuri recalled an experience of dancing with Sunny and Ajay Devgn on each side. " 'Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke' was a movie that I had done and we were shooting an out an out dance number where I had Ajay on my right and Sunny on my left. They were both really nervous and they said we'll follow you, and I can tell you, we all did a lot of offbeat dancing, but it was great fun," she said.

But when Johar taunted them both for achieveing a Ph.D in diplomacy, Madhuri opened up and said: "I think I will have to say Jackie, not because he couldn't dance, but because I couldnt look in his eyes… He made me blush whenever I tried. Even when we were shooting 'Ram Lakhan', and I would sing 'Oh Ram ji', I would blush," she said.

The finale of the show is set to be aired on Colors Sep 27.
