Karan Johar has returned to television as a judge on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Karan, Madhuri Dixit, and Nora Fatehi serve as judges for a dance competition in which a variety of celebrities compete for the top prize under the guidance of experienced choreographers. Karan stated in a recent interview that he moderates his criticism of the show since celebrities can be sensitive.
Particularly as the host of his reality show Koffee with Karan Johar and in his interviews, Karan is recognized for his candid and frequently frank commentary. However, in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, even when criticizing the participants, he is slightly more reserved. In a recent interview, Karan explained the reason for this.
The director told Indian Express, “I am much more judgmental than I am permitted to be.” Occasionally, they must tell me to moderate my judgments. When it comes to Jhalak, in particular, everyone is a celebrity and therefore highly sensitive and delicate. Occasionally, I must embellish my arguments to be persuasive.”
Many allege that the celebrity participants on the show frequently perform to satisfy Karan, who is one of the most prominent filmmakers in the country and also the leader of the largest production companies here. Karan disagrees however. Everyone is attempting to perfect their movements and facial expressions. Also, we strive to make me, Madhuri Dixit, and Nora Fatehi as comfortable as possible. We are all members of the same family, he stated.
The tenth season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is now airing on Colors TV, while Karan can also be seen in the seventh season of Koffee With Karan, which broadcasts on Disney+ Hotstar. Next year, the director will return to the big screen with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
