Danseuse Isha Sharvani's consistent top position on a dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' upsets fellow contestants

While dancer-turned-actress Isha Sharvani has been dancing her way to the top slot on a TV dance reality show week after week, her fellow contestants feel that the competition is too much one-sided.

Isha Sharvani

Especially since Isha is a professional dancer and a teacher, while the others are simply amateurs. The general feeling is that Isha is way too good to make it a fair contest. While some of the contestants admit to us that the issue bothers them, they however say that all is not lost. In fact, they are practising their moves with renewed enthusiasm. 

While acknowledging that her background in dance is an advantage to Isha, anchor and cricket presenter Shibani Dandekar says, “We have to look past the fact that Isha is the best. We just need to improve ourselves.” In fact, even the other contestants Gurmeet Chaudhary, Giaa Manek and Ravi Kishan say they are trying their best to not get affected by Isha’s victory over them in every episode.

Gurmit Chodhary

Recently, when Gurmeet received a low mark, a few of his fans protested. Some even objected to the alleged special treatment being meted out to Isha. The channel had however denied the allegations.

Stand-up comedian Bharti Singh, “Yes, sometimes we feel that she is the star of the show, but if she has a 60 per cent chance of winning the show, we too have at least a 40 per cent chance. The rest all are non-dancers but I may be capable of doing some moves that she may not know, and vice versa.”
