His success story is about the stuff that the dreams are made of. He created history by being the first ever contestant to win the jackpot price of Rs Five crores on “Kaun Banega Crorepati” in 2011. Coming from a very humble and a modest background, Sushil Kumar, will soon be seen as the thirteenth contestant in the Colors dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’.
His name was a closely guarded secret by the channel till now. The only hint that the channel provided during its press conference while disclosing the names of the 12 candidates was that the 13th contestant will be a surprise package, a commoner.
Sushil Kumar will now have a chance to rub shoulders with some of the big names like Ravi Kissen, Sanath Jayasuriya, Archana Vijaya, Darsheel Saffary, Bharti Singh and Isha Sharvani among others. After showing his command on general knowledge, the viewers will be eager to see Sushil Kumar’s dancing skills. The show launches tonight on Colors at 9pm.
