I am overwhelmed by Madhuri’s warmth-Sana

Sri Lankan master blaster Sanath Jayasuriya, who is back in Sri Lanka after being eliminated from an Indian Television reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5’, says he was especially overwhelmed with the great actress' warmth and the whole experience was "amazing" though "tough".

He has gone back with happy memories and hopes to return to India soon."The show is completely different from what I do in life but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

The contestants are talented and hard working. The three wonderful judges (Madhuri, Karan Johar and Remo D'Souza) were really warm towards me, especially Madhuri," Jayasuriya told in an email interview from Sri Lanka.

In one episode, Madhuri asked the legendary cricketer to sing a few lines from a Sinhalese song.

In return, Jayasuriya asked her to match steps with him to popular Sri Lankan dance form Baila in another episode of the show.
She also taught him the right moves of Indian classical dance.Madhuri were also generous while giving points to Jayasuriya, who was referred to as 'Sir' by Karan and Remo.

The 43-year-old surprised his friends, family and fans when the news of his participation in the celebrity dance show spread all over.
But he took it as a challenge and worked hard with his choreographer Suchitra to learn leg work on a different pitch.

He even managed Bollywood's popular snake dance step."It was an amazing experience overall, but a tough one for me. I tried to put in a lot of hard work and enjoyed to the fullest. It was nice to learn a bit of salsa and jive.

Before the show I had never performed on a stage; am happy I could do so," said the cricketer, adding that he definitely won't mind dancing at a celebration next time.

He has been associated with television in one way or the other throughout his over two decade career, but reality TV had a different taste, he says."I have been doing various TV stints, commentating for a couple of years now. Reality TV shoot is quite different from cricket commentating or the live TV coverage you are part as often as a cricket player," said Jayasuriya, who even appeared in a cameo on a daily soap during his stint here.

"Mumbai is a city very special to me, I have lots of friends, I enjoyed my days playing for the Mumbai Indians. Indian fans are always very supportive and welcoming. Would be nice to come back and be associated with the IPL (Indian Premier League) next year," he added.

Meanwhile, "Sri Lanka Premiere League is about to start. So I will be busy practising," he said. (Jagran Post)

    gamarala Sunday, 15 July 2012 04:26 AM

    Ah yes, people from Matara district would be delighted with your achievements and would thank you for representing them.. ...

    For that's what they voted for you ;-)

    observer Sunday, 15 July 2012 05:21 AM

    We sri lankans forget the past very soon and most of us are very very jealousy people. let the old guy have some fun and worry on yourself s first. once he entertained us with cricket to win the world cup.

    aparnathenuwara Sunday, 15 July 2012 05:16 AM

    What type of Politian's Great Sri Lanka has produce. With any mean try to popular. Sri Lankan citizen want accept this cheap popularity. God Help Sri Lanka

    Crishantha Sunday, 15 July 2012 05:28 AM

    Simple answer is he has duties to do for Matara ppl and they have not granted him to dance in India. If he wants to dance, he can resign from his MP post and do whatever he wants. He has lost his image now...

    Fusion Sunday, 15 July 2012 05:46 AM

    Sanath, seriously! Quit politics. I have no problem with you getting into ShowBiz. Acting, dancing, or whatever, but please get out of politics while you can!

    Vicks Sunday, 15 July 2012 06:44 AM

    He asked for a Minister position. You didn't give one. So, he is playing cricket around thr world and shaking his booty. Also, Bald and the Beautifulíng in Soap. Happy democracy Sri Lanka.

    perera Sunday, 15 July 2012 06:57 AM

    Noor Sunday, 15 July 2012 07:26 AM

    S.fdo, Can you accept a MP, representing PPL is dancing and wasting his time with women????

    Alex Drake Sunday, 15 July 2012 07:32 AM

    Hey Sana, was it warm or was it Hot. Probably you couldnt differentiate! Poor you.

    Nishantha Rajapaksa Sunday, 15 July 2012 10:19 AM

    ela ela ohoma yang

    dinesh Sunday, 15 July 2012 10:39 AM

    Remember he is a MP from Matara

    Don Sunday, 15 July 2012 10:40 AM

    Shahrukh did not want to play cricket for India!

    HafShaq Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:46 AM

    Now We might have a dance show of sana during the opening ceremonies of IPL and SLPL and all PLs.

    jterm Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:55 AM

    warmth eh? man you lucky old dawg you - good one sana, at least you're having a good time :) which is more than we can say about the rest of the people in our country :(

    Vattakka Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:49 AM

    if people of SriLanka watch your all 5 seasons you will lose your image in one day...since people like from Matara and similar areas doesn't have internet or youtube you are safe boss...

    Athi Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:02 AM

    Money has blinded him and he has forgotten that he was elected to the Parliament to serve the people. What a pity?

    krishan Saturday, 14 July 2012 03:49 PM

    Well done sana. Why you guys attacking his personal life. Let him do what he want.

    The God Father Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:03 AM

    Me too

    Kirtis Baba Amaray Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:29 AM

    Sanath you are trapped by the cheating Indians now. You may even betray SriLanka for the sake of money. Be a true Srilankan putha, don't bring disgrace to SriLankan Cricket. son.

    S.fdo Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:36 PM

    Why cant Sanath do a bit of dancing with whomever he likes? Dont forget that he did at one time bring honour to SL. He has earned his money and now he is having some fun! So what's the big deal? He may be a MP, he's human too. What have most of our other MPs and Ministers done for the country except for having a wail of a time spending the country's money in billions! None of them were born rich, but have become so after coming into 'politics'. So let Sanath have his bit of fun and what does it matter to anyone as long as he's not a burden on anyone

    lee Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:37 AM

    Many may disagree but Sanath I guess sees him self as an entertainer. This is what he did at best as a cricketer and he tried to do the same in a different "pitch" with this saga. Though a bit of emberesment engulfed at the beginning when hearing abt his decision to dance, on seing him in the dance floor as committed as he was, there was a sense of respect for the hard hitting man. It needed lot of guts to do that and he did it. He did what he felt like doing than trying to live up to the illusions we all have created on him. If I'm to have a crack at his critics....if Shakrukh Khan dancing is ok with you why blame Sanath for doing the same?

    Maru Yaka Monday, 16 July 2012 04:47 AM

    A LEDGEND???

    Amarathunga Chandika Saturday, 14 July 2012 08:00 AM

    Yes Kiris Baba, you are truely correct. Sanath should not spoil the good image that Arujuna earned for SriLanka Cricket. Now the entire world knows the difference between Sanath & Arjuna Ranathunga.

    Nari Sabry Saturday, 14 July 2012 08:03 AM

    Sure.Sure. Not ony Sanath, Iam ALSO overwhelmed by her warmth

    Aney Machang Sunday, 15 July 2012 03:57 PM

    Whatever the readers may say about Sanath, I appreciate his courage and greatness in his character.
    He is a top class entertainer in his own style whatever he choses.

    Amarathunga Chandika Sunday, 15 July 2012 04:18 PM

    You are right Mr. Perera, this man Sana will do any thing for the sake of money. Hope he will not our contry's dignity. shame of him.

    Godagampala Rohana Sunday, 15 July 2012 04:29 PM

    Cricket and Dance are two different subjects sanna. Aftr getting into Politics you are out of control. You are not an Indian, mind it.

    HKSsunil Sunday, 15 July 2012 04:27 PM

    Dear voters of Matara, Next time think twice before a MP is selected please!

    Moron Saturday, 14 July 2012 11:49 PM

    He is talking about Madhuri Dixit. But there was another Dixit who was not very benevolent to Sri Lanka during J.R. Jayawardana era.

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 15 July 2012 02:59 AM

    Is he eliminated ?

    Nisal Sunday, 15 July 2012 03:14 AM

    he will do any thing if money involve, what a shame!!
