Judging Is More Difficult Than Acting: Madhuri
MUMBAI — Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit-Nene, who is enjoying her second stint on Indian television after almost a decade with “Jhalak Dikhla Jaa,” is likely to appear on the fifth season of the dance reality show, although she feels judging is tougher than acting.
“I feel judging is more difficult than acting. We can act easily. As a judge, one has to see and understand the work first, and then comment. Also, one has to make them (contestants) realize their flaws and guide them to excel,” said Dixit-Nene.
The 43-year-old actress, who made her television debut with “Kahin Na Kahin Koi Hai,” a marriage-based reality show in 2001, said, “Talks about the fifth season of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ are on. Let’s see how things work out.”
The “dhak-dhak” girl went to Los Angeles to see “Dancing with The Stars,” which is the orig inal version of its Indian counterpart, before signing up as a judge for “Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.”
“I feel more comfortable as a judge now. I am enjoying this. I feel I the contestants better. I know their strengths and their weaknesses,” she said.
