Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 was the best show on Indian TV. Alas! It’s over now (did you watch it last night?) but we’re happy to watch reruns because we absolutely loved:
Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma make us ROFL  Manish does a mean Bengali impression (he sang Chikni Chameli in Bong. Go figure.) Kapil (whose broken English is the best!) once justified the sponsors, “Vaseline aap tab lagate ho jab gir jaate ho ya chehre pe khushki hoti hai. Aur yeh sab cheezien tab hi hoti hain jab aap bade hote ho. Aur bade tab hi hote ho jab Bournvita khaate ho.”

Karan Johar: And his gay jokes. But even more, his dancing! He’s got moves like Jagger!

The sportsmanship: Unlike other reality shows on TV, there is no senti nonsense here! If we see one more person crying on some show about how miserable his life was... we’ll ship them off to Sudan... or just change the channel!
