Vote for Baichung heavily on May 8th in JDJ3
If you are a Baichung fan then please vote for Baichung for his performance this week in Jhalak Dikhla Ja3 to keep him out of the danger zone as he is again getting 25 this week and he is also the lowest scorer among all. Please give atleast 60 votes from your own side so that he will be safe. Start voting for him after night 10 PM on May 8th (Friday) till morning 8 AM on May 9th (Saturday). Only your votes can save BAichung. Give him atleast 60 votes from your own side. Watch Jhalak Dikhala Ja3 on May 8th at 9 PM only on Sony TV. sms "BAICHUNG" to 52525.

Please vote for Baichung more in Jhalak Dikhla Ja3
In this coming Friday (1st May), Baichung is getting 25 for his performance... Although he is the 3rd highest scorer of the evening, still there is a chance of him coming in the dance-off probably with a dance-off specialist as the fans of two contestants who have scored less than Baichung are going to vote heavily for their respective sweethearts although they don''t deserve it this time. So I request you all to save our Baichung from the dance-off by voting heavily for him infact 5-6 times more than the usual....Please do it....Otheriwise he will come in dance-off....
