Auditions are dime-a-dozen but with Krrish, pairing up with dance masters Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant, the screening venue buzzed with extra excitement.


Thousands had registered to participate in the audition round of the show, which was held for the second day at the Swabhumi complex in Kolkata on Tuesday.


Though none of the judges were present here at Kolkata but host Aayushman said that they were expecting a lot from the city since it was a melting pot of several languages and cultures bringing the much-needed spice to the show.


He said that Kolkata's amalgamation of different-backgrounded people ensured a regular flow of talent.


"This is the largest dancing show Indian television has ever produced as for the first time we are reaching out to London and New York for auditions," he said.


"The inclusion of the superstar judge trio is going to make it a super hit," he added.


Participants from various parts of West Bengal and neighbouring states came here to take part in the audition in fancy dresses and make up to make it to the next round.

That's the number of people who turned up without registration on the first audition for Hrithik Roshan's Just Dance in Kolkata


The first set of audition for Hrithik Roshan's debut TV show, Just Dance, flagged off yesterday in Kolkata. Apart from the contestants who had pre-registered themselves through the channel's website and other means, another 2,000 arrived to participate in the show. Over 1,500 queued up outside the venue at 6 am.


The production house, Fazila Allana's SOL Productions, was only prepared for a crowd of a little over a 1000 people, which led to chaos on the sets.


Monika Shergill, senior creative director, Star Plus, the show's broadcaster, confirms, “We were not prepared for such a huge number of walkins. It's really hot in the city.


The on-ground crew created a kind of a shelter but that was not enough to accommodate the extra footfall. The food too was organised in such a way that it would suffice the number we'd thought will come. But we managed.“


Now, the registered, followed by the walk-ins, will be auditioned. The best of the lot will enter the judges' audition, conducted by choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant. Considering that grand-judge Hrithik Roshan had his first-ever public performance in the city of joy, wouldn't he be present too?


“His dates are still being worked out. Hrithik's grandmother used to live in Kolkata. Her house is still intact,“ says Shergill. “So, there can't be a better place than home to start the show, right?“
