Mumbai, Aug 4 (): In dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’s seventh season hosted on Colours, versatile and popular model-actor Kushal Punjabi got eliminated, just four weeks after his entry on the show as a wild-card contestant.
Last week Puja Banerjee, famously known for doing Parvati role in the mythical show “Devon Ke Dev Mahadev” was eliminated from “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7″. Now, this week Kushal Punjabi has been eliminated from the show. He was eliminated from the show after he received fewer numbers of votes and an argument that made the judges to eliminate Kushal.
The 32-year-old actor had entered Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa with wild-card contestants – winner of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ show Tara Jean Popowich and RJ Malishka.
After his elimination, Kushal told that he did not anticipate it. He added judges had always praised him and given him great scores for his performances and so he did not think he would be eliminated so early. Also, the versatile actor had prepared for his next act, which he had felt would have been his best performance on the show.
The Tiger act performed by Kushal was aimed to encourage ‘save the canine’ campaign, but he did not receive much positive feedback from the viewers. The performance positioned him in the bottom second place, after which he faced an argument last week.
This week, contesting against the stand-up comedian and Kushal’s co-contestant Kiku Sharda, Kushal lost the show after bagging fewer score than Kiku Sharda.
Kushal had teamed with choreographer Mohena on the show, who was earlier with another evicted contestant Purab Kohli.
The show is judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, choreographer-director Remo D’Souza and Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar.
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa show now has nine contestants, including Sophie Choudry, Shakti Mohan, Karan Tacker, Tara Jean Popowich, Malishka, Ashish Sharma, Akshat Singh, Mouni Roy and Kiku Sharda.
