Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7, the most awaited celebrity dance reality show each year, has never failed to impress us. The premiere night of this season was especially extraordinary, with such a high level of grandeur, that it leaves us utterly flabbergasted and wondering, whether the next season can get better than this! And this is ONLY the premiere, mind you.
The premiere night, with the theme 'Never Seen Before', saw numerous new additions to the Jhalak repertoire, we actually lost count! Here are some of the highlights of the premiere week...
First Ever Female Duo Performance: Well, Palak (Kiku Sharda) and Kruti Mahesh performed first on the premiere episode and rewrote history, by making it the first EVER female duo performance in the records of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
Lauren's Hindi: Lauren Gottlieb has picked up the alien language and speaks it so beautifully, that the judges were thoroughly impressed. Go hide, Katrina Kaif. Now!
Remo, Madhuri and Karan's new words: Remo ditched his famous 'This Is It' and adopted 'That's How You Roll'. Madhuri has added 'You Killed It' along with 'Perrrfeccct'. And Karan, Oh don't ask. 'Banging'. Yes, Mr. Johar will never lose his puns.
Outdoor Performances: Mouni Roy was the first to perform outdoor, amidst a huge lake on a rock. The performance was accentuated with bombs that kept blowing up from beneath the water surface, sending the water splashing into the air. Purab Kohli then performed horizontally on a wall, using harnesses for support!
Karan's Jhooter: Karan's famous lie-o-meter from Koffee With Karan has made its way to the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7 sets with a new name. He kept pressing the device whenever someone spoke diplomatically, and the Jhooter spoke 'Oh Please!' LOL Karan.
