DID Doubles (also titled Dance India Dance Doubles) is a dance reality show. It aired on Zee TV and is a continuation of their very popular dance series of Dance India Dance. The show sees participation exclusively from couples. It has competitors who come to perform from all parts of the country. The show has
Rajeev Surti, and
Marzi Pestonji as the judges.
Jay Bhanushali was the host the show, similar to the other seasons of Dance India Dance. He is a regular anchor for the show who brings in with him a dose of wit and self-deprecating humour.
He is loved by both the participants and the viewers of the show.
Shweta Salve was the co-host , replaced
Saumya Tandon from the previous season. The show kicked off with the three judges sharing their experiences from the various auditions. This time, the trials went on all over the country across eighteen cities. They shared their excitement and optimism for this version of the show. All three were hopeful to see a gamut of performances which set the stage on fire. They narrowed it down to the twelve best couples across the country. These couples got the chance to perform for the grand prize. This version has the show moving away from their normal solo competitions which the show has traditionally seen. DID Doubles thus promises to bring in a lot more variety and twice the excitement than any of the other seasons.
The original disco dancer, Mithun Da (
Mithun Chakraborty), has reprised his role of Grand Master for this show as well similar to that of the previous seasons. The new season features a new set of mentors as well in addition to the participants to guide and train the couples and bring out their very best. The interesting bit about DID Doubles was that the couples need not be of the opposite genders alone. They have allowed people to form boy-boy pairs as well as girl-girl pairs.
This widens the range of the competition and makes the dance sequences a lot more interesting than the normal fare we are all used to watching. This season of the show saw all kinds of awe-inspiring sequencing, gravity defying moves, acrobatics to make our hearts stop. Dance just got a lot more serious for these men and women performing. Every turn, bend, lift, and jump become crucial in this intense competition which tested the contestants to their maximum.
