While no Bollywood films are without the usual song and dance routine, the upcoming season of Nach Baliye has only a few names from B-town who will be competing to take home the top laurels…
Insiders say if all goes well, Bollywood will be represented by the likes of Mallika Sherawat, Rajeev Khandelwal and Chunkey Pandey.A member from the show’s crew says, “We are in talks with quite a few known faces, as our criteria is not to just have star couples on the show.” Among the actors who have been approached are Khandelwal, Jennifer Winget and Karan Singh Grover, Vivian D’sena and Vahbbiz Dorabjee, Anoop Soni and Juhi Babbar.
“Things are in the nascent stage and we expect to finalise the names and announce them soon,” says a crewmember. While Raqesh Vashishth and his actress wife Riddhi Dogra have already given their nod for the project, Mallika Sherawat too has promised to scorch the dance floor along with her prospective groom who she will choose to date from her TV show The Bachelorette.
Adds the source, “Mallika has committed to take part in the show but we are still working on her schedule.” While Khandelwal denies the buzz adding he prefers not to be part of reality shows, Anup Soni states, “Just like last year we have been approached this year too. We could be able to do some special episodes.”
