Dance India Dance: Jammin’ it up with Jeetu!

The latest superstar to shake a leg with the finalists of Zee TV’s Dance India Dance is “Jumping Jack” Jeetu! The evergreen heartthrob who made the ladies swoon in the 70’s and 80’s had all the girls on the sets of India’s biggest dance reality show raving about how young he still looks.

When quizzed about his trademark “White shirt, white pants n white shoes” look, the actor said, “Dark clothes make me look short!” Heard this one before, guys? Quite an original perspective, Jeetu ji! As he stepped up on stage, Jeetendra said, “Let me first admit … I am deeply intimidated by all the dancers who’ve performed on this platform. Over the years, fans have loved me for my dance style. But these guys are just something else. They’re rockstars. I doubt if anybody can match steps with them!”

Turning to Grand Master Mithun Da, he said, “Dada’s been a great friend and a source of inspiration in so many little ways.” Overwhelmed by the praise, Mithun Da interrupted him saying, “Please, Jeetu ji! It’s completely the other way around. I have always taken your guidance and followed your footsteps in the industry. You have been my idol for a very long time!”
In a bid to dazzle Jeetendra, the three masters and their teams are said to have presented acts depicting the famous dance styles of all their favorite Bollywood stars. Watching Shakti from Terence ki Toli bring alive the magic of Madhubala with Aaiye Meherebaan from Howrah Bridge, a floored Jeetu asked her who taught her all those lovely expressions. Playfully, Shakti pointed at her guru Terence Lewis who went red in the face! Jeetuji insisted, at this point, that Terence show them a glimpse of Madhubala and the ace choreographer had no choice but to oblige!
Everybody’s favorite Dharmesh “sir” from Geeta Ki Gang brought the house down with a medley of dance hits from Jeetendra’s films and the superstar had tears in his eyes! All eyes were glued to the floor when Jeetu took to the dance floor with Mithun Da and Master Terence Lewis. To catch all this excitement and more, tune into   Dance India Dance on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM on Zee TV!

A Toast to the Hottest Bollywood jodis….

Come Saturday night and Zee TV’s Dance India Dance raises a toast to the most popular Bollywood jodis of all times! Masters Terence, Geeta & Remo are all set to have their participants pair up on stage to bring alive the magic of iconic twosomes like Anil-Madhuri, Rishi Kapoor-Dimple Kapadia and even Munnabhai-Circuit!
In an episode that has hottie Dia Mirza and everybody’s favorite Arshad Warsi in the audience, the masters are said to have left no stone unturned in ensuring that every act is a gorgeous Bollywood extravaganza!

While on the sets of Dance India Dance to promote her upcoming film Hum Tum Aur Ghost, Dia revealed, “Master Remo was my first choreographer. This is way back when I’d bagged a video to be shot for Sonu Nigam’s album. Back in those days, I’d designated Remo as my official dance partner at all parties and we’d just dance till we dropped.” Going “Awwwww!” In unison, both Geeta Kapoor and Mithun Da ribbed Remo’s wife saying she ought to keep a watch on her man! Making matters worse for the poor lady, Remo asked Dia Mirza for a dance … and they waltzed away gloriously amidst much fanfare. Not a lesser dancer by any means, Arshad Warsi revealed that he’d represented India at a World Dance Championship, bagging an impressive runner-up trophy. 

Dia and Arshad were mighty impressed with Amar & Shakti from Terence Ki Toli who steamed up the stage with Anil Madhuri’s Dhak Dhak Karne Laga. Binny & Dharmesh from Geeta ki Gang wowed the duo with a very stylish waltz to the golden oldie Yeh Raatein Yeh Mausam Nadi Ka Kinara. As an exciting climax to a splendid evening, Arshad took to the stage and jived to his hit Ibn-e-Batuta. To catch the dance magic of Bollywood hottest pairs, tune into Dance India Dance on Zee TV at  8 PM.
