Dance reality Show “Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa- Reloaded” just got super special, as famous Cricketer Irfan Pathan will be seen as the first wild-card entry on the dance show and he says whatever he earns from his stint will be used for his cricket academy.
Irfan and cricketer brother Yusuf Pathan have a joint foundation called Cricket Academy of Pathans, which is a self-funded project for the under-privileged children.
“We have a foundation- Cricket Academy of Pathans- and it is our dream project that we launched last year,” says Irfan.
“It is a self funded project where we help under-privileged children… coach them, give them equipments and other things. So whatever funding I get from here, we will use it there.”
However Irfan is not a dancer and he doesn’t make two ways about it! He is sportsman, so whenever something challenging comes his way, he is all ready!
“This offer came to me and I took it as a challenge. It took time for me to accept the show… I took two-three months. I am a non-dancer. And this show is about the journey of non dancers and this thing attracted me to do the show,” he said.
