Harpal Singh Sokhi evicted from 'Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa'

Mumbai: Harpal Singh Sokhi on Saturday became the third contestant to bid adieu to the popular dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa" season 9. The popular chef says he is leaving the show with a new-found love for dance. Harpal was seen alongside his choreographer Bhavna Purohit on the Colors show. Before him, actor Gaurav Gera, who entered the show as "Chutki" and siblings Priyanka Shah and Poonam Shah were eliminated. “It was great fun being a part of the show. I go back with a bag full of new acquaintances and a new found love for dance. It is not only a form of entertainment, but also a great stress buster,” Harpal told IANS. “And above all, it helps you burn off those calories. So my advice to everyone is, go ahead and dance your heart out, so that you get to gorge on delicious food without any hesitation,” he added.  The show features filmmaker Karan Johar, actress Jacqueline Fernandez and choreographer Ganesh Hegde as judges. Post "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa", Harpal has a lot of things lined up. “I have three restaurants lined up for opening. My cookware brand Happy Chef has just launched and we are planning a lot of events around it. I would love to do even a food show with Colors," he said. After Harpal's eviction, the contestants left on the show include actors Sidhant Gupta, Arjun Bijlani, Helly Shah, Karishma Tanna, Nora Fatehi, Surveen Chawla and Shakti Arora, and ace choreographer Salman Yusuff Khan. Harpal feels that Surveen should win the show.  “All of them are exceptional. But if I have to choose, I probably see Surveen winning the contest,” he said. IANS
