Bollywood's most celebrated choreographers- Geeta Kapoor & Sandeep Soparkar to grace the Grand Finale

Dubai, August 29th, 2015:  Colors premier dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, has continuously raised the bar for this season of the show by roping in the critically acclaimed actor and dance par excellence, Shahid Kapoor as a judge on the show. Along with all this excitement comes yet another breathtaking edition of UAE's most celebrated dance competition - ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa UAE Dance Extravaganza 2015'. Organized by IndiaCast, this renowned dance competition in its fourth year promises to be bigger and better than ever before. While Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa on COLORS keeps the viewers glued to their television sets this season by going global, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa UAE Dance Extravaganza 2015 too is all set to allure the audiences through its glitz, glamour and chutzpah and giving a break to the Indian residents of UAE to come to the forefront.

Continuing its tradition of making its brands more local and more relevant to audiences in the Middle East, IndiaCast aims at providing local dance enthusiasts a huge platform to display their creativity and talent and get an opportunity to make it to the big league. The competition like the last two years is open to all Indian residents of UAE for solo participation within the age group of 12 years and above. The Grand Prize for the final winner is an all-expense paid trip to Mumbai with once in a life time opportunity to dance in front of the acclaimed Bollywood Actor – Shahid Kapoor on the coveted stage of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and also get featured on COLORS Middle East.

The Auditions which were held at the Melia Hotel, Dubai on Aug 14th attracted over 140 entries from across UAE and were adjudged by ace choreographers Ankit Tanna and Svetana Kanwar from Mumbai. After what looked like a tough competition, a total of 12 finalist were shortlisted for the Grand Finale which is slated to take place on August 29th at Crown Plaza Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai. These 12 finalists will now battle it out in front of more than 1500 people for the golden opportunity to dance in front of Bollywood's renowned dancing actor Shahid Kapoor on the Jhalak floor! Legendary Bollywood choreographer Geeta Kapoor and master of Ballroom and Latin American dance forms, Sandeep Soparrkar will preside over as the jury at the Grand Finale.
 IndiaCast has spared no effort in making this contest a grand gala affair! The event is being organized by Emirates Vision Events and is being promoted through a wide reach multi media campaign across Colors, MTV India, Gulf News, Khaleej Times, City 101.6, Bus Shelters, Direct Mailers, digitally through Facebook and connecting directly with the youth through educational and dance institutes.  

Sachin Gokhale, VP and Business Head, Middle East and Africa, IndiaCast said, “At IndiaCast, we are committed not only to providing our viewers with the most innovative TV entertainment but also connecting with the local community and enriching their lives. Dance is one of the highest forms of human expression and is also a very popular activity among the Indian expatriates based in the UAE, particularly the youth. We always felt that there was no credible platform for the enthusiasts to showcase their dancing talent in front of the world and get the recognition they deserve.  JDJ UAE Extravaganza started in 2012 as an endeavour to bridge that gap & provide that much needed platform. Since then, the event has only become larger and succeeded in getting larger and better talent and participation. 2015 is the fourth year of JDJ UAE Dance Extravaganza and we are confident that our audiences will get to witness a larger and more exciting spectacle at the Grand Finale on 29th August. We look forward to having yet another successful show on the 29th August and hope to bring out yet another talented dancer in front of the world.  This event is just one of the many more initiatives we have planned for the year and our viewers can look forward to many more such innovations in the months to come”.
