Video Jockey turned actor Purab Kohli is likely to participate in the dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" this season.

The 35-year-old actor who was recently seen in the mixed reviewed film "Jal" is slated to be one of the contestants of the reality show, which has celebrities trying to master their dancing qualities.

The actor is said to have given his nod to the Colors show recently, reported Bollywood Hungama. In the actor's absence, sources close to him asserted that the actor signed the agreement with the channel earlier this week.

Apart from Kohli, celebrities like Shobhaa De, Yuvraj Singh, Atif Aslam, Jeeva Singh and Daksha Sheth's names are also doing rounds as the show's participants. Recently, reports had also carried that singer Yo Yo Honey Singh is in talks to be featured on the show.

Reports of former "Bigg Boss 7"contestant VJ Andy and television actor Karan Tacker of "Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai" fame participating in "JDJ 7" have also surfaced. 

The celeb trio Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and choreographer Remo D'Souza, who had helmed the judges' seat during the previous season are expected to return this season as well.

But the bigger question is whether previous season's hosts Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma will return to the show as the funny duo is presently tied up with their respective Bollywood careers and there is lesser chance of the them taking up their hosting role again.

Sharma has his hands full with his hit comedy show "Comedy Nights with Kapil" and his debut film "Bank Chor" under YRF. Meanwhile, Paul recently quit "Mad in India," reportedly due a number of film offers.
