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.


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.
