Fans of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8", also called "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded", must be wondering who will be eliminated in the coming weekend. Well, we have the name of the evicted contestant. It is none other than Raftaar.

According to a report in Bollywood Life, Raftaar, who has been in the danger zone for the past few weeks, failed to live up to the judges' expectations this time, resulting in his elimination.

The episode was shot recently and the rapper is said to have scored less than Scarlet Wilson, who was also in the danger zone.

Besides the elimination, the next episode of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded" will see Malaika Arora Khan as the new judge replacing Karan Johar, who bid a tearful adieu last week.

The producer-director had to leave as he wanted to focus on his next directorial project "Ae Dil Hai Muskil", which has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles.

With Raftaar's elimination, the remaining contestants -- Sanaya Irani, Shamita Shetty, Scarlett Wilson, Faisal Khan and Mohit Malik -- will compete against each other to win the coveted trophy.

Further, rumours have been doing the rounds that a bunch of wild card contestants will soon enter the show.

While no confirmation has been made by the makers, it is speculated that TV actresses Neha Marda, Roopal Tyagi and "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actress Anita Hassanandani will be entering the show in the coming week.
