Took part in ''Jhalak..'' to train in various dance forms: Purab Kohli

Mumbai, May 21: VJ-turned-actor Purab Kohli, who will be seen in dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa‘, says he participated in the show to learn different dance forms.

Purab is excited to be a part of the 7th season of the dance show and is leaving no stone unturned to make a mark for himself in the field of dancing.

“I signed up for ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ in order to take formal training in different dance forms that are challenging and that will get me to push my limits to become a performer at international dance forms, especially Tango,” Purab said in a statement here.

He attempted to excel in dancing when he first took up Salsa under the expert guidance of Shiamak Davar some years back.

Purab has also requested his choreographer Mohina to incorporate Salsa and Tango moves wherever possible.

The show will be judged by filmmaker Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and choreographer-director Remo D’Souza. Popular TV actress Drashti Dhami, who was the last season’s winner, will host the show along with actor Ranvir Shorey.

‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, likely to begin in June, will be aired on Colors channel.
