Judging the participants of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa over the past three seasons, Madhuri Dixit had made an appearance on the rival dance show Dance India Dance to promote her upcoming film Dedh Ishqiya where she made an appearance in a stunning fusion outfit accompanied by co-actor Huma Qureshi, Madhuri and dazzled stage.
Mithun Chakraborty, the grand master of DID, who also has been her co- star of many films from 80s hit such as Prem Pratigya and Mujrim , Madhuri did not miss the chance to match steps with him and tried to follow his trademark dancing style.
Mithun also recalled the time when he worked with Madhuri and how they enjoyed every moment on the sets. Madhuri also talked about her old ties with choreographers Shruti Merchant and Feroz, who are now judging the show. Shruti had also choreographed for Madhuri in Aaja Nachle , while she was assisting Saroj Khan.
“The challenge with her was to present her in a breathtaking manner that she has so far not been seen in. Reinventing Madhuri, who has displayed a range as a dancer, is not an easy task. “It is a delight to dance with her on the show,” Shruti said.
Feroz also recalled the dance number and said ” Madhuri and I have danced together in Kay Sera Sera . I was a background dancer then. There is a shot in the song where Madhuri punches me in my face. I remember she was unwell but came for rehearsals. Despite ill health, she would dance with the team and be extremely cooperative,” recalled Feroz.
