Siddharth Shukla ousted from ‘Jhalak…’
TV actor Siddharth Shukla’s popularity saved him week after week on dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6″, but just when his dancing skills saw some improvement, he was voted out Saturday.
Siddharth, who essays Shivraj Shekhar in “Balika Vadhu”, was mostly seen as a weak dancer on the celebrity dance show. His towering and charming personality only kept adding to his strong fan base, but that couldn’t sustain his presence for long enough.
His fans failed to provide him ample votes, leading to his exit from the dance reality show.
He was one of the bottom two contestants in the show along with Mukti Mohan. Mukti, who is seen as equivalent to professional dancer Lauren Gottlieb, another partipant on the show, defeated Siddharth in the dance face-off.
Though judges actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-director Remo D’Souza saved Mukti from getting eliminated, her fight for the “Jhalak…” trophy is still on with Drashti Dhami, Shaan, Lauren, Sonali and Sumant and Sana Saeed.
