Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa 9 shocker! Helly Shah and Arjun Bijlani in the bottom half!

Oh my! This will be a huge jolt for fans, we say!

Will Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa 9 disappoint fans? Will the new format not appeal to the fan-doms? We think there will be a lot of deliberation after the first episode of Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa goes on air. Yes, we know that the first episode of the show does not have any eviction but the ranking system has thrown up surprises. Helly Shah of Swaragini, Arjun Bijlani and Gaurav Gera are in the bottom three. This is shocking considering that these two actors have a tremendous and loyal fan base. Arjun has also done so many dance performances in 2015 – 2016.

It is not unusual for the channel to showcase actors who are popular with their audience. We know that Arjun has a strong association with Colors and so does Helly. The other guy on this list is Shakti Arora who was seen as Ranveer on the show Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi. He has fared better than them.

We hear that audience voting won’t be of much consequence during this year and the judges are going to be very strict. Plus, the show has trained dancers like Shantanu Maheshwari and Salman Yusuff Khan. It is a see-saw battle.

Frankly, we are surprised to see Helly at this position. A few days back we saw how brilliantly she was dancing on Cham Cham from Baaghi. This has come as disappointing news. Gaurav Gera is obviously totally new for this field and it must be tough dancing in drag like Kiku Sharda did in the previous episodes. Arjun Bijlani is injured so that must have hampered his moves on the dance floor. As we know, he had a bad fall, which caused an injury but the actor is a fighter and should bounce back. There are reasons why Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa is one of the top reality shows in the country. It has a gruelling regime and few can live upto the expectations of the judges. Stay tuned for more updates on the show…

Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion #Jhalak @karanjohar pic.twitter.com/G5gaXbRvMH
