Mumbai, Sep 4 (IANS) The Kapoors - Rishi, Neetu and their son Ranbir, and actor Anil Kapoor - took the celebrity quotient on the semi-final weekend episodes dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6" to a new high.

Anil visited the show to promote his upcoming action-thriller "24", which is also his debut TV production, while Rishi, Neetu and Ranbir were there to create a buzz for forthcoming "Besharam", which unites the trio on the big screen for the first time.

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6" is judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-director Remo D'Souza.

Anil and Madhuri recreated their old romance on the sets of the show by dancing to their popular songs "Dhak dhak", "Koyal si teri boli" and "Kehdo ki tum meri ho warna".

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6" is nearing its grand finale now, and there are five celebrity contestants left to fight it out for the trophy.

The top five contestants are actress Drashti Dhami, singer Shaan, dancers Lauren Gottlieb and Mukti Mohan, and "India's Got Talent" winners Sonali and Sumant.

The weekend show airs on Colors channel.


'Iss Pyaar... Ek Baar Phir' to surpass season one

The concept of seasons is yet to work well on the Indian small screen, but actor Sachin Parikh is convinced that "Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon...Ek Baar Phir", the sequel to "Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon", will surpass the original series.

Parikh, who essays a key role in the show, says that the subject and the content of this season is stronger than the past show.

"Season two of 'Iss Pyaar...' will also rock. It will go beyond the first season. The subject and content is stronger than first one," Sachin told IANS.

The first season had actors Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani in the lead, but the new season features actors Avinash Sachdev and Shrenu Parikh in prime parts.

The new season went on air on Star Plus Aug 26.

Sachin believes people will try and connect the show with its prequel, but after a while, they will be able to relate to it.

"The moment people start watching the show, they will relate to it. Initially, they will see the show as an extension of the first season. But after a while, they will get hooked to the story line," Sachin said.


Reel love turns real for 'Beta Hi Chahiye' stars?

If the buzz from the sets of the show "Beta Hi Chahiye" is to be believed, its lead pair Ankit Bathla and Garima Tiwari have taken their on-screen romance off the screen.

The duo has hit it off well, and the show's unit is said to be amazed with the pace that the two have been bonding.

According to a source from the unit, Garima is friendly with all her co-stars, but especially with Ankit. They eat in the same plate between shots, and Garima adoringly addresses Ankit as "pati" off screen too!

Who knows something may be cooking?
