Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is a television reality show and the Indian version of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing and ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

Concept[edit]

In Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, celebrities perform various dances together with professional dance partners. The show's format is taken from the Strictly Come Dancing show on BBC One in the UK.[1] The show is also pre-recorded, unlike Strictly Come Dancing and other spin-offs.[1] Of the spin offs, the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is the only one that uses recorded tracks rather than live music with an in-house band. [1]

The show is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions in India. Tania Bath is the Creative Director of the Indian series.
