Actor-comedian Suresh Menon became the first celebrity contestant to get eliminated from the sixth season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 Saturday, which also saw the entry of former Indian skipper Krishnamachari Srikkanth.
Suresh, along with his choreographer Suchitra Sen was in the bottom three contestants, with actors Meghna Malik and Ekta Kaul, and their respective choreographers. The result was announced on the basis of the audience voting and judges Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D'Souza's marks.
The episode, which was called Jhalak on wheels, saw a scintillating impromptu performance by dancing diva Madhuri on her superhit number Choli ke peechhe, on Meghna's insistence. It was the star attraction in the episode, which was otherwise made interesting with the use of different wheel-based props in the dance sequences.
Actor-comedian Suresh Menon, who became the first participant to be evicted from the sixth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, is not disappointed because he got to dance a lot within a very short span. "Evictions will be there in every episode. I have a neutral feeling, but I am not disappointed," Suresh told.
Dwelling on the amount of dancing he did on the show, he said: "I have never moved so much in my life. People were entertained and that is why I am happy. I had fun and people laughed with me."
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 went on air June 1 and he enjoyed the atmosphere on the sets of the show he said. "My take away is that I was so comfortable. I met good celebrities and people. It was a good unit. Everyone was so nice and positive on the show," Suresh said and added: "When people came to know I am going (after being evicted), everyone came out and greeted me. I was so touched."
Suresh is active in both the mediums - he is known for his comic act on TV show Comedy Circus and has also tickled the funny bone of movie-goers with his fun act in films like Dil To Pagal Hai, Krazzy 4, Ra.One, and Housefull.
Although his work keeps him on his toes, Suresh is open to more reality shows. "I have very little time. I have my website, films, radio and other scripts and my own production house. If I get time, I will do more of these," he said.
