New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) Comedian Bharti Singh, who surprised the judges with her dancing abilities in "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5", was eliminated from the dance reality show Saturday.
The 26-year-old had made it to the top five contestants of the show along with choreographer Savio Barnes. Judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, ace choreographer Remo D'Souza and filmmaker Karan Johar, the comedian had managed to be in their good books with her brimming enthusiasm.
Bharti also got appreciated for her energetic dance moves, specially the lifts by Barnes, despite her weight. She even got a standing ovation from everyone with her emotional performance on song "Kyu main jaagu" from movie "Patiala House" and left most of them in tears.
Besides giving a dose of laughter in between her acts, Bharti surprised everyone with her versatile performances, be it Bollywood songs like "Chammak challo" or doing the Marathi folk dance 'Lavani'. She made sure to rock the stage every time she performed. She was even lifted by Akshay Kumar in a recent episode, where the actor had come to promote his upcoming film "Oh My God".
Her claim to fame was stand up comedy show "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge" where she established herself by her hilarious character of Lalli. She later went on to do various comedy shows like "Comedy Circus" and "Comedy Circus Ka Naya Daur" before deciding to put on her dancing shoes.
Now with only Isha Shervani, Gurmeet Choudhary, Rithvik Dhanjani, and Rashmi Desai Sandhu left in the league to compete, the competition is going to be tougher every time.
