Mumbai, Aug 18 - Actor-comedian Kiku Sharda, who has been eliminated from Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, heaves a sight of relief and confess shooting for two daily soaps and two weekend reality shows had begun to take a toll on his health.

Kiku is relieved it's over.

Dancing on 'Jhalak...' was fun and challenging while it lasted. But it was exhausting. It requires a lot of physical energy and emotional commitment, which I'd have happily given if I didn't have all the other serials to shoot for, said the actor

Apart from Jhalak... he's seen as Palak on Comedy Nights With Kapil and also features in Akbar-Birbal and FIR.

I really don't know if I'd have reached the finals if I tried harder. I am not sure I wanted to. 'Jhalak...' took too much of time energy and concentration. There were no half-measures, he said.

While I danced, I danced with all my heart and soul. It was grueling because doing 'Jhalak...' was like a full-time activity on top of all my other commitments.

I confess I felt trapped and exhausted. Shooting for two daily serials and two-weekend reality shows had begun to take its toll on my health and family life.

I was constantly shooting. Sometimes I'd shoot through the night and go the next morning to my next shooting without any sleep, he said.
