Following the success of ‘Garnier Fructis Jodi No 1’, Vijay TV is all set to launch another reality dance show from January 5. The new show, christened ‘Garnier Fructis Jodi No 1 – Challenge’, would provide one more opportunity to the eliminated reel life couples Bharat Kalyan-Shilpa, Rishi-Pooja and Deepak-Tharika to prove their mettle. This time the contestants would dance with a partner of their choice.
Meanwhile, ‘Garnier Fructis Jodi No 1’, the original celebrity dance show, will draw to a close on December 30. The grand finale will reveal the Jodi No 1 who will take home the first prize of Rs 10 lakh.
