Akshat Singh voted out of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’


The little wonder of the dance reality show, nine-year-old Akshat Singh is the latest contestant to get eliminated from ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Akshat said that he is not disappointed with his eliminated rather he is hapy that tension has gone away from his head.

"Why should I cry over my elimination? Accha hai tension gaya. I was working very hard, did my best and I came this far. That was the best thing for me! For me, Jhalak was a platform to not only dance, but to meet Salman Khan. How else would I have met him?"

Akshat will now settle down in Mumbai to pursue his Bollywood dreams. "I am not going back to my hometown Kolkata. I will join a school here. My parents are already looking for accommodation on rent and we will settle here along with my grandmother," he reveals. Ask him if he is happy about shifting to Mumbai and he says, "I want to become an actor. I am getting good offers to participate in dance shows. So, with studies, I can pursue that as a career. In fact, I will be happy if I get to act with Salman Khan."

Despite performing well in every episode, Akshay could not make to the final.

“I am not sad that I haven’t been able to make it to the finals but I am happy that I made a lasting impression on audience’s minds and won their hearts too. Now, it is the time to get back to my studies,” Akshat told PTI.

Ashat is happy that he got to meet his idol Salman Khan on the show, “I am very lucky that the show gave me the opportunity to meet with Salman and also dance with him. He even praised me for my performance. I wish that I get a chance to work with him in a film as he often works with children in his movies,” Akshat said.

In the face-off, Akshat was pitted against professional dancer Shakti Mohan.

“Shakti di is a good performer. In the face-off also, I gave my best performance. I feel good that during my stay on the show, I bagged maximum full marks, dancing shoes and winner of dance marathon. All these achievements make me feel that I am a winner of the show,” said the boy from Kolkata, who is also planning to shift base to Mumbai.

‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7’ is approaching fast towards the finals with only four contestants, Shakti, Mouni Roy, Karan Tacker and Ashish Sharma. The show is being judged by Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar.
