Celebrity dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" is gearing up for its ninth season. While several names of possible contestants have surfaced online, speculations regarding the judges of the new season have also been doing the rounds.

According to a SpotboyE report, Bollywood beauty Jacqueline Fernandez is likely to judge "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9." If the reports are to be believed, the "Kick" actress will become the latest Bollywood beauty to make her small screen debut. She will reportedly replace Malaika Arora Khan, who judged the previous season of the show. 

Madhuri Dixit Nene and Shilpa Shetty had also been a part of the judges' panel in the previous seasons of the dance reality show. The Bollywood actresses had raised the glamour quotient on the show with their presence.

As for the possible contestants of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9," Shakti Arora aka Ranveer of "Meri Aashqui Tumse Hi" has been approached to participate on the show. There were also reports that Ruhanika Dhawan, who plays the role of Ruhi in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" and Siddharth Nigam, who portrays the role of Ashoka in "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat," will also be a part of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9." "Bigg Boss 8" contestant Sonali Raut has also been approached to participate on the reality show.

The last season of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" had Shahid Kapoor, Ganesh Hegde, Malaika and Lauren Gottlieb on the judges' seat. Manish Paul hosted the show and engaged in a lot of humour and fun throughout the season.

In other news, Jacqueline is currently shooting for "Dishoom," along with Varun Dhawan and John Abraham. The actress is also busy with "A Flying Jatt," which has Tiger Shroff in lead role.
