A performance stuns the audience and judges Madhuri Dixit Nene and Karan Johar in a promo for Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 10. Colors TV shared a video of participant Nishant Bhat dancing to “Adhuri Kahani” in an effort to raise awareness about the struggles of the LGBTQIA community.
Nishant is seen draping a red dupatta over his head like a saree, as a voiceover chastises, “Ladka ho kar bhi ladki ke kapde pehen raha hai (Look, he’s dressing up like a girl, even though he’s a boy).” “Main numb ho gaya tha kyunki main khud inn galiyon se guzar chuka hun,” filmmaker Karan Johar said after the performance.”It takes a long time for society to accept the LGBTQIA community,” Madhuri says in Hindi. In her most recent film, Maja Ma, which is available on Amazon Prime, the actor plays a queer character.
“Nishant ne apne performance se LGTBQIA+ community ki kahaani ko ek aawaaz, kya aap bhi dekhna chaahoge inhe karte perform?” Colors captioned the video. Dekhiye #JhalakDikhhlaJaa har Sat-Sun, raat 8 baje, sirf #Colors par, sirf #Colors par, sirf #Colors par, sirf #Colors par. At any time, @voot.”
Celebrities and fans praised the performance in the post’s comments section. Riddhi Dogra called it “fabulous,” and TV actor Sriti Jha called it “best performance.” “I hope one day everyone understands and respects them,” said one supporter.
