ConceptEdit

In Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, celebrities perform various dances together with professional dance partners. The show's format is taken from the Strictly Come Dancing show on BBC One in the UK.[1] The show is also pre-recorded, unlike Strictly Come Dancing and other spin-offs.[1] Of the spin offs, the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is the only one that uses recorded tracks rather than live music with an in-house band.[1]

The title derives from "Jhalak Dikhlaja" (Let Me Have a Glimpse of You), a popular song from the film Aksar (2006).

EliminationEdit

The show airs its elimination on a Sunday in every season. The contestants who are in the danger zone will have to be in the face-off round.

AiringEdit

The first four seasons of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa were aired on Sony TV.

From its fifth season it has been airing on Colors TV.[2]
