"Nach Baliye 7" is slowly picking up viewership for its changed concept and interesting formats. Now that it is a few weeks old, makers have begun introducing wild-card contestants.

After "Kaanta Laga" item girl Shefali Jariwala and husband Parag Tyagi, the unit is now considering cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and his wife Ayesha.

"We are in talks with Shikhar Dhawan to make a special wild-card entry to the show. It will shake things up and it will be good to see him perform on the stage with us," Tellychakkar quoted a source as saying.

However, since there hasn't been any official announcement on the development yet, this can be counted as a speculation.

In other news, Shefali-Parag have been on the show earlier, and will surely give the current lot a tough time. Popular choreographer Mayuresh Wadkar and girlfriend Ajisha Shah will also join the dance reality show.

"Parag and Shefali had been a very popular contestant and the makers wanted to add some zing with their comeback. As for Mayuresh, the good looking choreographer has a great fan following and with his girlfriend also a dancer, they will act as a tough competition to the contestants," another source informed the popular web portal.

Meanwhile, the contestants are reportedly irked with Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel's tantrums. After being accused of resorting to unfair means for completing tasks, the two have shown complete disinterest in them.

Apparently, the "Grand Masti" actress snuggled in her bed refusing to participate in one of the compatibility tests, while the model-turned-actor chose not to show up.
