Here’s some exclusive goss from Jhalak’s set for you. It was during the shoot of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa launch episode that I got to spend time with the gorgeous Archana Vijaya in her make-up room. Never has it happened that a celebrity so popular, has agreed for an impromptu question-answer round instantly. As soon as she got over with her shot, I followed her and asked for few pictures and she asked me to come along. I must confess that she looked gorgeous in her black and red outfit and even after the day long shoot, she was bright and lively.
“I am so glad that I got an opportunity to be a part of Jhalak,” she started off on her own. “I have been anchoring and doing travel shows for quite some time now, and I know I am very good at it. But, Jhalak is a challenge for me, where I’ll get to learn a new art form.” She posed for pictures and answered my questions simultaneously, without fumbling even once. “It’s not that I have never danced in my life. I used to take part in a lot of dance performances during school, but that was amateurish. Here, I am sure I will go out learning various dance forms.”
Meanwhile, her make-up man felt like giving her a touch-up but she continued unperturbedly as he combed her hair, “When the channel approached me, I was thrilled! But I told them that I wanted a tall choreographer because I am 5”8. I am super happy that Sanam is my partner.” Not only her voice but her sparkling eyes also gave the testimony for her excitement of being paired opposite Sanam. When we asked her about Sanam, she said, “Sanam is a brilliant dancer. I recently came to now about his popularity amongst young girls. He is tall, has a great body and a trained dancer. I am sure people will like our Jodi.” “What about the chemistry?” I asked. “Well, he is very patient with me as he knows I am not a trained dancer. We are going step by step and I am sure by the time we hit the Jhalak stage, I am sure we will rock the show,” she fluttered her eyes and said.
