Television will help me connect with my fans

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, who is all set to maker her television debut as a judge in a new dance reality show, is confident of connecting with youngsters and those living in real India through her stint on the small screen.

Mallika along with dancing legend Jaaved Jaafari and dancer Terence Lewis will be judging the TV reality show, `Chak Dhoom Dhoom – Team Challenge` that would be aired on Colours from January 14. The show will showcase group dancing from all over the world.

"All my movies are meant for adults so only those above the age of 18 can watch them. With my TV debut, children and those living in smaller towns can see and enjoy my work. The reach of TV has increased, so this will help me connect with my fans," she said.

Mallika, who has received several offers on TV, says she opted for `Chak Dhoom Dhoom` because it was a unique dance format.

For this diva, Madhuri Dixit is a graceful dancer.

"Dancing means one must dance as if nobody is watching or judging them…it must be carefree dancing," she quipped.

Mallika said she would look for `entertainment` while judging the groups and not `technicalities`. While her co-judge and contemporary dancer Terence Lewis is of the opinion that Mallika is very emotional while judging the contestants.
