The list of choreographers this Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7, who will be mentoring our favourite celebs- Sreesanth, Purab Kohli, Kiku Sharda, Sophie Choudry, Ashish Sharma, Shakti Mohan, Mouni Roy, Karan Tacker, VJ Andy, Pooja Bose, Sukhvinder Singh, Akshat Singh and Kritika Kamra, is officially out! The news was released through the official Twitter handle of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa this afternoon and features quite a few new names who will be debuting in Jhalak 2014.
Indian cricketer Sreesanth will be seen with Latin-style queen Sneha Kapoor, Bollywood actor Purab Kohli with Princess Mohena Kumari Singh and Kiku Sharda(Palak) will be seen with Jhalak debutante Kruti Mahesh of Dance India Dance 2 fame. Singer Sophie Choudry has been paired with Jhalak staple Deepak Singh, while Ashish Sharma aka Rudra of Rangrasiya is paired with the incredibly talented Shampa, another regular on Jhalak.
The versatile Shakti Mohan will be grooving with choreographer Tushar and lucky lass Mouni Roy has been assigned a Remo favourite, Punit Pathak. VJ Andy's choreographer is Bhavini Misra of Star Plus' Talent Hunt Just Dance's fame, and Pooja Bose's choreographer is Rajit Dev, another product of Just Dance.
Bhavna Khanduja from Dance India Dance 4 will be seen choreographing for the 'Haule Haule' singer Sukhvinder Singh and Savio Barnes has been tied up with Kitni Mohabbat Hai actress Kritika Kamra. Looks like Savio, for once, has got a chance to rest his back, considering that he has been given a lighter weighing partner as compared to Bharti Singh in JDJ 5 and Meghna Malik and Shweta Tiwari in JDJ 6!
Little Wonder Akshat Singh of India's Got Talent fame has been paired with child prodigy Vaishnavi Patil, who needs no introduction. The choreographer for the duo is yet to be revealed. Ace choreographer Salman Yussuf Khan, who is another regular at Jhalak, is missing this time round.

The incredibly talented Remo D'Souza's pet, Punit, is most remembered for dancing with Foreign Ki Lauren Gottlieb last season. Punit also mentored Shibani Dandekar in Season 5.
Akshat Singh-Vaishnavi Patil
Akshat Singh, of course, could not be paired with any ordinary partner! Child prodigy Vaishnavi is a two-time Boogie-Woogie winner, DID L'il Masters second runner-up, IGT 4 top 5 contestant and winner of numerous awards.
Pooja Bose-Rajit Dev
Rajit is another product of Just Dance and a first-time Jhalak choreographer.
Kritika Kamra-Savio Barnes
We thought, staying true to the tradition of Savio getting the heaviest partner, he would be assigned to Palak! Savio has choreographed for Bharti Singh, Rapper Hard Kaur, Parul Chauhan, Shweta Tiwari and Ammaji Meghna Malik in former seasons.
Sukhwinder Singh-Bhavna Khanduja
Bhavna is another dancer from DID 4 and has appeared in Remo's movie ABCD.
