Cricketer Sreesanth stormed out of the sets of celebrity dance reality show, 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. Here's why...

Tainted cricketer Sreesanth, who is said to be starting afresh with a new career in the entertainment world, is already making news for the wrong reasons. He apparently walked out of a shoot for Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa when he couldn’t get positive feedback from the judges.

A source says, “Sreesanth was supposed to perform a little later but the crew decided to shoot his act first as they wanted to complete the elimination procedure and he was in the face-off round along with Puja Banerjee. But it turns out that he was not prepared for this change of plan and he was annoyed that he had to shoot earlier on. He finished shooting his portion but it was clear that he was not keen to complete his act. ”

When the judges failed to be impressed by his act, he is said to have become angrier. A crewmember says, “Remo D’souza said that it wasn’t his best performance but Sreesanth shot back that he had given it his best.

Madhuri too said that this was not a great act. He again showed his displeasure over this, and Karan Johar too lost his cool. But KJo didn’t say anything as he didn’t want things to get ugly.

After this, Sreesanth just walked out of the sets. The production team tried to convince him to return to the show, as he was supposed to sit through the rest of the performances. But he left the venue in a huff.”

The channel’s spokesperson confirmed the news.
