Actor-turned-judge will shoot his first Just Dance episode on the weekend. Come Saturday and actor Hrithik Roshan will start shooting his TV debut, The actor is the judge on the dance reality show, that's being co-judged by choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant. The trio will can one episode a day, and the shoot will be conducted over two consecutive days. The auditions started off in Kolkata and wound up in New York last month. From hundreds of thousands of entries, a handful of applicants have been selected for the rounds that will be judged by the actor. 


The show is said to be based on the hit US TV show So You Think You Can Dance. Fazila Allana of SOL Productions, the company helming the desi version, informs, “Hrithik shot in January with us for a part of the first episode. But yes, we are shooting with him again on May 21 and 22. He will be meeting the shortlisted contestants for the first time.“ 


In February this year, Hrithik rehearsed intensely before shooting the first promo of the show at a city studio. The exercise lasted over 17 hours. He even suffered a ligament tear in the process, but took a shot in the arm and popped painkiller pills so that the shoot wouldn't be stalled. So, is the actor, currently shooting for Karan Johar's Agneepath remake, nervous about shooting his first fulllength episode? “No way. And even earlier when he shot with us, he didn't seem nervous,“ beams Fazila, adding, “Hrithik likes to go in having everything planned out. So we do a lot of pre-production meetings with him. And he prefers having rehearsed perfectly if he has to dance.“ 


Ask Hrithik what his idea of dance is and he explains that it's the most visible expression of one's emotions. “The first person who ever danced probably was supremely happy and just moved his body in such a way that the expression came to be known as dance,“ he opines. Vaibhavi and Farah will focus on choreography. Will he judge the contestants on the same parameters? “Not really,“ he asserts. “I'll focus on energy, expression and the impulse more than the choreography, because dance is all about expressing emotions. If you can demonstrate your feelings to those who're watching through your performance, I think you've succeeded as a dancer.“
