Kiku Sharda voted out of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’

Actor cum comedian Kiku Sharda is the latest participant to get eliminated from the dance celebrity show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Kiku who is shooting for two daily soaps is happy to improve as a performer on the reality show.  

"It was a fantastic journey on 'Jhalak'. I am passionate about dance and got to learn many new dance forms on the show. I feel I had given two-three good performances and was praised by judges too but still I failed to get full marks," Kiku said.

With back to back shows, the commitment has taken a toll on Kiku’s health and he is now relieved.     

"Dancing on 'Jhalak...' was fun and challenging while it lasted. But it was exhausting. It requires a lot of physical energy and emotional commitment, which I'd have happily given if I didn't have all the other serials to shoot for," said the actor

"I really don't know if I'd have reached the finals if I tried harder. I am not sure I wanted to. 'Jhalak...' took too much of time energy and concentration. There were no half-measures," he added.

"While I danced, I danced with all my heart and soul. It was grueling because doing 'Jhalak...' was like a full-time activity on top of all my other commitments.

"I confess I felt trapped and exhausted. Shooting for two daily serials and two-weekend reality shows had begun to take its toll on my health and family life.

"I was constantly shooting. Sometimes I'd shoot through the night and go the next morning to my next shooting without any sleep," he said.

Kiku had been in the danger zone from last two weeks. "It became very obvious that I will be evicted after I came in the danger zone for the consecutive third time. I also wanted to get evicted because I was not getting enough time to prepare my acts due to my other commitments. If I am on a particular show I want to give my best," he said.
