Mumbai: We know that popular dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ has changed address by shifting from Sony to Colours. We also know that Madhuri Dixit has been retained as one of the celebrity judges along with Remo D’Souza and that filmmaker Karan Johar would be making the third celebrity judge in the show.
What we don’t know are 12 celebrities who will be participating on the show as contestants. According to a leading tabloid, while the list has been kept a secret, some of the names of probable participants have been revealed.
From a well known cricketer to a popular bahu to a dancer to a ghazal singer; all have been approached for the show.
Sources close to the show have revealed that cricketer Sanath Jayasurya, actress Pratyusha Banerjee, Isha Sharwani, singer Talat Aziz, stand up comedian Bharti have been approached by the channel for this season.
Bhojpuri star Ravi Kisen’s name is also doing the rounds.
While no confirmation has come from either the channel or the celebrities, it would be interesting to see Jayasuriya do a tango on the dance floor, and Pratyusha Bannerjee who is best known for her role as Anandi in ‘Balika Vadhu’ don a different avatar for the show.
