Although Aamir never wanted to do reality shows, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa was always on his to-do list. 

"Someone just made me remember that in 2013, I mentioned in an interview that I would never do reality shows, unless and until it is Jhalak. It was always on my to-do list. I feel Jhalak is a celebration of dance, fun, and positivity. Of course, eliminations will be there but the show is very positive," said Aamir.

The actor also quipped, "When I got this offer, main television se bohot dur ho chuka tha (I was away from television). I think I needed something like this to get me back and jo mujhe karna hai. Jhalak, for me, was a beautiful thing that I couldn't resist."
