After participating in the dance reality show

Jhalak Dikhla Ja

, Punjabi pop sensation Mika Singh is all set to be seen in another reality show called

Jalwa Four 2 Ka 1

where he will captain one of the show’s four teams. The highlight of the show is that it will feature Rakhi Sawant and Mika together.

Typically, Mika is full of beans and excitement, saying, “One year after Jhalak... which was a huge hit, I am doing another reality show on television. I felt a need to do something new on television because in other reality shows you only see people singing or dancing; whereas here you will get to see the real masala.”

Hoping to make big
Masala and Mika brings to mind the singer’s famous kiss controversy with Rakhi Sawant; who, amazingly, also happens to be a part of this same show as another captain! (Incidentally, the two other captains are Shweta Tiwari and Shakti Kapoor). There seems to be every chance of lots of masala exploding when old combatants Mika and Rakhi will come together. But Mika shrugs, “I don’t think we will have any panga or controversy. I’m sure people are very excited about this show because it is going to be the biggest show on television. I will make it big — similar to what Akshay Kumar did to Khatron Ke Khiladi on Colors or Salman did to 10 Ka Dum on Sony. The show has come to a higher level because of Rakhi and me.

People are going to wonder what is going to happen when Rakhi and Mika come face to face. But I can assure you that we are not going to plan any controversy.”

Fireworks to happen? Does that mean that truce has finally prevailed between the headline grabbers? “It was just an incident,” Mika says. “After that, you have never seen me slapping my girl-friend on Valentine’s Day or filing a case against any channel. Except for this one unfortunate incident, I have never been involved in any kind of controversy.” The motor-mouth adds, “After that incident, I came as a judge on the show Yeh Hai Jalwa where Rakhi was a participant and now I even appreciated her dance. I want to concentrate on doing well.”

Yet another twist in the tale is that Rakhi’s other antagonist Kashmira Shah is one of the participants on the show! There are fireworks every time these two babes confront each other. This show seems designed to be a must-watch, if controversy is what you are looking for.
