Model and actress Malaika Arora, currently serving as a judge on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa,‘ took a nostalgic journey into her childhood during a recent episode. Sharing insights into her early struggles, Malaika reflected on her days spent in a rented house in Chembur, Maharashtra, with her sister Amrita Arora and their mother after her parents’ separation.
In a poignant moment on the celebrity dance reality show, wrestler Sangeeta Phogat and choreographer Bharat Ghare presented a powerful performance to the song ‘Jo Bheji Thi Duaa,’ highlighting the challenges faced by construction workers who build homes for others but lack a home themselves.
Touched by the performance, Malaika became emotional and shared her own experiences, stating, “I remember we used to live in a rented house. We didn’t have our own house. We often joke that we lived in a matchbox during our childhood. I remember how small the house was.” She expressed the difficulty of living in cramped conditions and the determination to buy a house once she could afford it.
Addressing Sangeeta, Malaika praised the concept of the performance, commending its interpretation and conveying a powerful message. She noted Sangeeta’s natural acting skills, suggesting that the wrestler has emerged as a brilliant actress during her journey on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.’ Malaika encouraged Sangeeta to explore acting further, affirming her talent in dancing, emoting, and acting.
