Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9: Guess Who is Going To Replace Shahid Kapoor :- Imagine the set of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 9 without Shahid Kapoor. Errrrr.. seems like horrible nightmare na. Shahid made his TV debut last year with Jhalak Dhikhla Jaa Reloaded But this year Shahid is no more a part of Jhalak’s stage.
The actor was one of the judges last year apart from Malaika Arora Khan, Karan Johar, Ganesh Hegde and Lauren Gottlieb. The actor was said to be at loggerheads with host Manish Paul as well as judge Malaika Arora Khan.
The shooting for the new season will start post-June and makers are busy looking at options. It seems either Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh is being regarded strongly as top contenders for the hot seat. Both these actors have a mass appeal and a youth connect. They are known for their dancing skills as well. Last year, the ratings of the show weren’t too encouraging and makers are looking for an overhaul.
This is not the first time where Varun has opted for the small screens. Before this, he was also considered for Khataron ke Khiladi 7 with Siddharth Malhotra but Arjun Kapoor bagged the role. He was also in talks for another dance reality show So You Think You Can Dance with Hrithik Roshan.
Karan Johar still retained his position but Malaika Arora Khan will step out and Jacqueline Fernandes is being opted at her place as a judge.
The shooting for this season is all set to start next month. This year’s probable contestants are–Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi star Shakti Arora, Ruhanika Dhawan of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Siddharth Nigam of Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Keith Sequeira of Bigg Boss 9 fame and Thapki Pyar Ki’s Jigyasa Singh.
Last season was won by Faisal Khan.
Excitement is on its peak for the show again amongst the fans of Jhalak Dhikla Jaa 9.
