Shahid will be replacing one of the judges on the reality dance show, Madhuri Dixit, who judged the show for three years. However, some reports said Madhuri is on break and may return in a short span with something more exciting.
Raj Nayak further said that they will miss the presence of Madhuri on the sets of the show. “We are keen on continuing our relationship with her and our team is exploring a show that will suit her persona,” he told PTI.
‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ is a reality dance show which pairs celebrities with choreographer to present breathtaking performances on screen. The show has been going on for over seven years.
Shahid Kapoor, who has been in news over his marriage with Delhi-based girl Mira Rajput next month, will be a regular TV icon soon.
