Manish Raisinghan, who has been charming his fans with the role of Siddhanth on "Sasural Simar Ka," is likely to showcase his dancing skills on dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9." According to recent reports, the makers of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" have approached Manish to participate in the ninth season; however, the deal between the makers and the actor is yet to be sealed. Last season, "Sasural Simar Ka" lead actress Dipika Kakar aka Simar had participated on the show.

"The channel is trying to bring in all major faces of their shows on board for Jhalak. The last season of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa saw Dipika Kakar a.k.a Simar making her foray into the world of reality television. And this season too, makers are looking for a renowned face from the show and chances of Manish Raisinghan doing Jhalak this year are bright," a source told India Forums.

Besides Manish, several other celebrities are likely to be a part of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9." Gautam Gulati, who was last seen on "Azhar," is apparently in talks with the makers of the dance reality show to participate on the show.

Other possible contestants of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9" are West Indies cricket team's popular players Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, Adaa Khan, Surveen Chawla, Arjun Bijlani, Shakti Arora, Mandana Karimi, Nora Fatehi, Karishma Tanna, Sonali Raut, Ruhaanika Dhawan, Spandan Chaturvedi and Siddharth Nigam.

In other news, Manish recently made headlines when he along with his former "Sasural Simar Ka" co-star Avika Gor made an appearance at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival for the screening of their short film "Ankahee Baatein" in the Short Film Corner section. "Ankahee Baatein" stars Manish and Barkha Bisht, while Avika is the creative director of the film.
