Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8's very first performance on third week was of Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi's Ishaani aka Radhika Madan's. This week's theme was Jhalak in motion and Radhika gave an amazing aerial act, that impressed the judges too.
Radhika and her choreographer Rishikaysh performed ‘Bollywood Tadka' for the song ‘Dhol Bhage' from the movie Ram Leela. Though at times, balancing was a bit of problem, Radhika and Rishi carried off well, which fetched them 34 points. (Karan - 9, Shahid - 8, Ganesh - 9, Lauren - 8. Total 34). But what made Radhika cry?
It was the comment of Ganesh Hegde that made her emotional and was almost in tears. Ganesh gave positive comments by saying the concept of their dance was innovative and he liked her costume. He was also impressed with the reverse wheel and horizontal walk during the dance. But Ganesh asked Radhika to bring humbleness because of the appeal on face, which will melt the heart, than confidence and pride.
This made Radhika emotional and almost cry. She said she is not at all among those who think themselves as big dancers. She loves dance and is a natural dancer and she does it with honesty. While Shahid Kapoor made her understand that her performance was good but what Ganesh meant with his words was about how audience perceive the act.
Supported Radhika, his choreographer Rishi said that she had practiced a lot for this dance and her leg is swollen because of practising a lot.
Rishi also said that she is managing two shows, which is very difficult. Immediate after Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi's shoot, Radhika comes for Jhalak Reloaded rehearsals and she hardly get time for sleep.
Well, to cheer her up was a caller Appu, who made her precious smile come back by calling her beautiful and asked her what's the secret of her fairness. To which our Radhika aka Ishaani said, her mother's Desi packs were the secret and moreover she was born fair!
