After two months of hard work, Monica Bedi was eliminated from Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa on Saturday night. Monica was doing pretty well on the dance reality show but as the competition gets tougher, even participants slightly lacking get cut loose.LAST week Monica and Javed performed on Kaise Paheli Hai Yeâ€¦ from Parineeta and were the second lowest scorers according to the votes. Chak De actress Shilpa Shukla, who performed on Shaka Laka Baby with her choreographer Nishant, also had the lowest votes and she and Monica had to battle it out in the face off round.
This was the second time that Monica was among the bottom two scorers. Shilpa however, has performed in the face off four times and has been fortunate enough never to have been evicted.
Shilpa, who is always full of energy when it comes to her performances, displayed the same drive in the face off round. And judges Saroj Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant voted for her because of her enthusiastic act. As for Monica, her performance was weak in dancing and choreography.
And Bedi was not shocked at her eviction. She said, â€œI participated on Jhalak to change my image and learn dancing. Iâ€™ve been successful in both. I donâ€™t regret getting eliminated at this stage, when I know that all the other contestants are amazingly good.â€
She also had a long list of people she wanted to thank for contributing to her successful journey, saying, â€œI had never learnt about dance earlier but now, after learning from a wonderful choreographer like Javed, I can proudly say that he is my guru.â€
Now that Monica has been eliminated, the six finalists are Gauhar Khan, Hard Kaur, Bhaichung Bhutia, Karan Singh Grover, Parul Chauhan and Shilpa Shukla.
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa airs every Friday and Saturday at 9pm on Sony TV.
