"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8" is around the corner, and names of prospective contestants have been floating for a while now. According to reports, "Madhubala" fame actor Vivian Dsena might be approached for the show.

"He was approached last year too, but the deal didn't materialise. The makers were keen on having him on board this season. He is one of the expensive participants this season," The Times of India quoted a source as saying.

Meanwhile, there are a bunch of other names doing the rounds, which have been on the radar and are said to have been approached for the dance show.

Kavita Kaushik (Chandramukhi Chautala) of "FIR", "Rangrasiya" star Sanaya Irani, "Balika Vadhu" fame actress Neha Marda and Sargun Mehta are some of the stars who are likely to be flaunting their dancing skills.

Also, Faisal Khan, whose ticket to fame was "Dance India Dance Li'L Masters 2' title, is in talks with the makers.

Dipika Samson aka Simar from hit TV show "Sasural Simar Ka", model Nora Fatehi, Radhika Madan aka Ishani of "Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi", Parth Samthaan and Puneet Issar are some of the other names who are being considered.

In other news, Shilpa Shetty will most likely replace Remo D'Souza as one of the celebrity judges on the show.

"There were numerous reports that both Karan Johar and Madhuri Dixit will be leaving the show. But none of them are. It's Remo who has been ousted from the show by the makers. Instead it's Shilpa who's come on board," a source told DNA, a few days ago.
