    Zor ka jhatka, zor se laga!

    The shooting of the Shah Rukh Khan-helmed reality show " Zor Ka Jhatka" in Buenos Aires that concluded last month had many jhatkas.

    According to one of the contestants who spoke on conditions of anonymity, there was more excitement off camera than on it. After recording a few episodes two of the contestants – Payal Rohatgi and Gaurav Chopra had to be sent back, apparently due to injuries.

    Says the source, "Gaurav and Payal had to return and were hurriedly replaced by two commandos of the Indian army Captain Albert and Captain Dharam. Contestants included boxer Manoj Kumar, Vijender Singh's boxer-brother Jai Bhagwan, wrestler Sonika, sprinter Alka Tomar, squash player Ravi Dixit, the youngest mountaineer to climb Everest – Krushna Patil, Kushal Punjabi, Vindoo Dara Singh, Claudia Ciesla, Bakhtiar Irani, former Miss Femina India 2008 Simran Kaur Mundi, Mink, Rohit Verma, "Biggest Loser Jeetega" runner-up Gracias D'Costa, "Rahul Ka Swayamvar" runner-up Priyadarshini and winner Dimpy, Rahul Mahajan, Vrajesh Hirjee, Jennifer Winget, Raja Chowdhary, Hanif Hilal, Amit Sarin, Karisma Tanna, Narayani Shastri and Manas Katiyal (contestant from "Raakhi Ka Swayamvar")."

    Apparently some of the boys painted the town red with the local Argentinian women. Says the source, "Why only red? The boys painted the town in every colour. Some of the male contestants just went ballistic with the local chicks who were more than willing to oblige. They were so many local girls who just wanted to get naughty with our boys. The guys really let themselves go." Adds the source, "There was only about five days of work. The rest was all play. "

    To avoid the winner's name being given out Endemol and NDTV Imagine recorded every contestant's stunts individually. However, sources say that Kushal and Claudia have an edge over the other contestants, Says the source, "The producers and the channel have done a very clever thing. They have made sure that the winner's name doesn't come back to India as it always does, by shooting every contestant's obstacle-tasks separately. So basically none of us know what the others contestants have done or how they've performed. Only the chiefs of the production house from India and Argentina were present at all the performances by contestants. This is why SRK could not be present in Argentina. It was impossible for him to be there to witness every contestant's performance as he was shooting in Berlin. They recorded his reactions separately in India. However he did join us in Buenos Aires for a few days to shoot the team portions."
