After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, another glamourous actress has declined the offer to judge dance reality show "Nach Baliye 7".

Balaji Telefilms, reportedly approached Kareena Kapoor Khan to become the fourth judge of the dance show. However, the actress declined the offer saying that she had no plans to make her small screen debut.

Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms has changed the format of the show this year and thus wants a glamourous fourth judge for the show. And for that she wanted to rope in "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actress Kareena.

But Kareena's team replied that she wants to focus on movies as of now.

"Kareena's team got back saying that currently she wants to focus on films and she doesn't want to do TV at this point of time in her career," a source said, according to IANS.

Earlier there were reports of actresses Vidya Balan, Preity Zinta, Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra being approached with the same offer.

However, Priyanka and Aishwarya didn't give their nod to the reality show. Priyanka is busy with movies and international projects, while Aishwarya Rai has three back-to-back films, endorsements and daughter Aaradhya to take care of. 

"TV takes a lot of time and Ash doesn't want to leave her three-year-old daughter Aaradhya alone for long periods of time," BollywoodLife.com quoted a source as saying.

Meanwhile, author Chetan Bhagat has been confirmed as one of the judges of the reality show. The author confirmed the report on Facebook and also explained why he took up the project.

"The main reason for me to do this was to reach deeper into India, as one of my goals is to touch as many Indians as possible in my lifetime. The more people I reach, the more people I can influence towards positive change. As one of the biggest shows on Indian television, Nach Baliye provided that opportunity," he said.
