A family get-together

It was a family gathering of sorts when Madhuri Dixit’s folks decided to join her on the sets of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Madhuri was accompanied by none other than hubby dearest Shriram Nene and sons Arin and Ryan.

The trio was later joined by Madhuri’s parents Shankar and Snehlata Dixit. When Mona, the host of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, asked the kids how do they feel being on the sets, they replied shyly, “Good”.

Catch Madhuri and her family on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa at 9 pm on January 3 on Sony Entertainment Television.
