New Delhi, June 22 -- Getting emotional after watching an excellent act is not uncommon with judges of reality shows. But today's episode of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa will see judges Madhuri Dixit and Karan Johar literally shed tears, remembering their parents after seeing the contestants do family-themed dance acts.
After seeing actor Sidharth Shukla's performance on the song, Rab Ka Shukrana, where he gave a tribute to his mother Rita and said that she means everything to him especially after his father's death, got Karan very emotional. He too lost his dad, Yash Johar, a few years back, and said that he could relate to Sidharth's emotions. Madhuri, too, was touched and said, "Looking at the love and respect you have for your mom, I wish my kids love me the way you love your mom."
Next, it was So You Think You Can Dance and ABCD fame actor-dancer Lauren Gottlieb's turn to touch the judge's hearts. Her act in the song, Tu Na Jaane Aas Paas Hai Khuda to illustrate how her father has always been a constant guiding force in her life, moved Madhuri to tears and she said, "I understand what you must be going through. I remember when I got married, I had to leave my family behind to start a new family in the US, and it was painful." Other contestants on the show, that airs on Colors channel, also presented interesting acts.
