‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, the hit celebrity reality show has been synonymous with actress Madhuri Dixit for the last four years.
The show, which brought Dixit back in to the limelight, has now made some major changes to its judging panel for the 8th season.
Rumours of Shahid Kapoor replacing choreographer Remo D’Souza had been doing the rounds but the channel only recently announced that it would be Madhuri Dixit who Kapoor will indeed be replacing.
Disappointing to Dixit fans, this show will mark Kapoor’s small screen debut.
The makers seem to have cashed in on the all the attention surrounding Kapoor given his on-going wedding preparations and the appreciation he has been receiving for his last outing ‘Haider’.
While the reason for this change isn’t known yet, it can’t be denied that he will bring some much-needed freshness to the show.
It isn’t just Madhuri Dixit who is being replaced.
‘Main Deewana’ choreographer Ganesh Hegde is all set to step into Remo D’Souza’s shoes, with Karan Johar being the only familiar face from last year.
What’s interesting about this panel is that this will be the first time the show will have a all-male judging panel.
Will be interesting to see how it pans out.
