Not only judges, but the makers have also decided to rope in new actors as the hosts of dance show "Nach Baliye 7".

Reportedly, Karan Patel of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" and Rithvik Dhanjani will host the seventh season of the dance reality show.

Karan Wahi and Gautam Rode hosted the previous two seasons of "Nach Baliye", but according to reports Wahi will now host "Dance India Dance".

BollywoodLife.com reports that the makers have moved to Karan Patel, who plays the role of Raman Bhalla in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein", to host the show.

Karan, who is said to be Ekta Kapoor's new favourite boy, has also replaced Karanvir Bohra as the new host of Balaji Telefilms' "Gumrah 5". And now the actor will be a part of the dance show.

His manager confirmed the news to BollywoodLife.com. "Karan has been roped in as the new host."

Karan will be joined by another television heartthrob Rithvik Dhanjani on stage. Initially, last year's winners Rithvik and his girlfriend Asha Negi were supposed to hosts the show.

But it looks like Ekta wants his blue-eyed boy to be a part of the dance show.

Meanwhile, this season Preity Zinta, Chetan Bhagat and choreographer Marzi Pestonji will reportedly judge "Nach Baliye 7".

"The show will see a change in the format as well as the judging panel. Talks are on with Preity, Chetan and Marzi and they are more or less confirmed as judges," a source told The Times of India.
