New Delhi: Cricketer Irfan Pathan, who has joined dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’ as the first wild card entry, is happy with the challenge of turning from a non-dancer to a dancer, but he says the biggest challenge for him will be remembering his dance moves.“I have only danced as a kid at family functions. I am a non-dancer, but I like taking challenges.

Also, this is an off-season for cricket, so when I was approached for ‘Jhalak’ I thought I will take this up as new challenge because the show is all about the journey of a non-dancer to a dancer. It’s going to be a new learning experience,” Irfan told IANS.

‘Compete with myself’
“My memory... to remember the dance steps is going to be my biggest challenge. I will compete with myself to get better with each performance,” he added.

Irfan said that his earnings from the show will go to his cricket academy, a self-funded project for underprivileged children.
