He further said, “We are excited to welcome Shahid Kapoor to the Colors family through his TV debut as judge on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Shahid’s appeal is enormous across age group, especially amongst youth who take inspiration from his career graph from being a dancer to becoming one of today’s most sought after actors. His understanding of dance is unparalleled and his contribution to ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ will enable us to raise the bar of entertainment that the show brings to viewers year-after-year. Having said that, we would also like to thank Madhuri Dixit-Nene for being the ultimate connoisseur of ‘Jhalak’; this journey would not have been possible without her.”

Speaking about his stint as judge, Shahid Kapoor said, “When I first took up dancing, I had the privilege to work closely with some great mentors to not only hone my dance skills, but also help me to shape my personality. As I join the ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ family as its judge, I am looking forward to share my learnings and experience with the contestants. Being a dancer brought discipline to my life and changed it completely; I’m now hoping to transfer some of the knowledge towards shaping the young and talented choreographers in our country.”
