Isha Sharvani has been mesmerising viewers and judges alike with her perfect performances on dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, and filmmaker Karan Johar feels her talent has been grossly underused in Bollywood.
"Main aapse maafi maangna chahta hoon kyunki mujhe lagta hai ki kahin na kahin hum mein koi kami hai ki humne yeh talent aap mein dekha nahi (I want to apologise to you that we lacked the eye to see your talent)," Karan said during the shoot of an upcoming episode, a source told IANS.
"Today, I'd like to say that on this platform you displayed your talent in totality, and I hope after this, the film industry notices and observes how brilliant you are. Truly," he added.
Karan co-judges the show with actress Madhuri Dixit and choreographer Remo D'Souza.
Isha, 27, is trained in traditional dance forms like Kalaripayattu, Chhau and Kathak. Extremely poised and flexible in her moves, she excels at aerial acts and lifts, and has shown her dancing talent in movies like Kisna and Luck By Chance.
Meanwhile, Isha is working on Bejoy Nambiar's David, an edgy film, which should hit the screens by the end of this year.
