Actor Arshad Warsi speaks about being on the judges' panel of the upcoming dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 11.

Not many know, but Arshad Warsi started his professional life as a salesman and later took up some other jobs. But having a keen interest in dance, life had other plans for the Munnabhai actor, from joining Akbar Sami's Dance group in Mumbai to dancing and choreographing in Bharat Dabholkar, Alyque Padamsee, and Firoz Khan’s plays, it all seemed like a manifestation falling into place. He even choreographed ads for some brands. In 1991, Arshad won the Indian dance competition, followed by a fourth prize in the Modern Jazz category in the 1992 World Dance championship, London, at age 21.

Fueling his passion for dance further, he started his own dance studio, Awesome, and also formed a dance troupe where he met his wife, Maria Goretti. In 1993 he got an opportunity to choreograph the title track for Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. During this time he was offered a role by Jaya Bachchan for Tere Mere Sapne, marking his debut in Bollywood.

Being destiny’s favourite child, his journey seems to have completed a circle with him turning judge for Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 11.

Talking about the same Arshad says, "It just all feels surreal. When I go into flashback, it just feels like it was all meant to be. I always had a special place for dance and life gave me the chance to get associated with it. Now, I am in a seat where I will be judging celebs over their dance, it is unbelievable, but a great feeling too."

In fact, Arshad who is in Goa mostly to get his house done, literally flies down to Mumbai to only shoot for Jhalak.

On the work front, Arshad was last seen in Bachchan Pandey last year, and this year, he lent his voice to the Netflix show Choona. Other than that, the actor is soon going to announce his new projects
