On Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Tanishaa delivers a heart-touching ode to her beloved dog Leo

Sony Entertainment Television’s celebrity dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, took viewers on a nostalgic ride last weekend as it welcomed the timeless Bollywood beauty, Meenakshi Sheshadri. The special episode, titled 'Marzi Meenakshi Ki,' marked the celebration of Meenakshi Sheshadri's illustrious 40-year journey in the film industry. 

As a part of the theme, the contestants performed to Meenakshi's favourite songs, promising a heart-warming episode with the perfect blend of nostalgia, entertainment, and stunning dance performances.

Week after week, Tanishaa Mukerji has been impressing one and all with her performances as she tries new styles and effectively delivers on the expectations of the viewers and the FAM trio of judges. And, this weekend, Tanishaa left pet moms, Farah Khan and Malika Arora, emotional with her stunning performance along with choreographer Tarun Nihalani to the timeless melody of ‘Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye’. 

In a touching tribute, Tanishaa dedicated her performance to her beloved pet and her steadfast companion who stood by her side during the challenging phase of her life. The act beautifully encapsulated the bond between Tanishaa and her furry friend, Leo, reflecting the unconditional love that pets bring to our lives.


Tanishaa's graceful moves and emotional expression struck a chord with Judge Malaika Arora, who said, “Tanishaa, I just want to say that from the first week till today, I can see so much difference in your performances. You've worked a lot on your footwork, expressions, and stance; I feel there has been so much change in you, and I think the full credit goes to the format of the show and of course, without a doubt, the work that Tarun has done on you and the way you have taken every challenge with determination."

I could feel the bond between you and your pet: Farah

Judge Farah Khan, who was emotional after watching Tanishaa’s heartfelt dedication to her pet, said, “Firstly, let me tell you, such a touching act. I could feel the bond between you and your pet. Tanisha, it is evident that not only your attitude but your body has changed; you seem more toned." 

Farah said further, "Your way of holding yourself, your entire body language has changed. I think in all these years when you were an actress, nobody saw what you are showing people in these four weeks, and what you're revealing from your heart. The passion you have, I haven't seen that in so many years, and I can see it on this stage. So for that, I want to commend you."

Tanishaa faced a medical crisis while shooting for her debut film

Tanishaa who faced a medical crisis and went into a coma while shooting for her debut film Sssshhh... said, “When I was shooting for my debut film ' Sssshhh...' in Manali, Dino, Gaurav, myself, and our director, were travelling in a car. In Manali, the back tire skidded, and the car toppled. Everyone else got fractures on their hands, but I fell outside the car and rolled underneath it. I had a concussion. My mom thought I had died; she was very scared. 

Tanishaa says she has no memory of the accident at all. "Doctors told me a month after the accident that I couldn't continue shooting, but the producers said the movie would be shelved if I didn't shoot. It took a year for my concussion and the swelling in my brain to subside, but I completed the film. But when a concussion had happened and I was at home for a month before leaving for the shoot, my dog Max, who has now passed away, used to be with me and sleep beside me.”
