Had put my stardom at stake for JDJ: Ravi Kishan

Mumbai: Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan, whose journey on dance reality show `Jhalak Dikhla Jaa` came to an end, says he put his stardom at stake for the show.

"I had put my stardom at stake. For a star like me to take a dance show and perform in front of the whole world was not a cake walk. The producers had invested heavily on me and the other contestants," Ravi told PTI.

"To get myself judged at this age by the judges and the audience was quite a task and a challenge that I took," he said.

Ravi`s decision to participate in dance reality show `Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa` was purely for his daughter. "I took up the show for my daughter. I wanted her to see that even her father can dance and that I can do all type of dance forms. I wanted her to be proud of me. I think I have achieved it," Ravi said.

However, Ravi clarified that he never saw himself going too far ahead in this dance show. "I never saw myself till the end. I think my time had come to leave the show. But I am happy to have got lot of love from the co-contestants, judges and the audience," he said.

"I was tired my body had given up. For nearly two-and-half months I was dancing," he added. But Ravi says he would continue to learn various dance forms. This is the second time he is participating in a reality show, after `Bigg Boss`.
