While the popular reality dance show "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa" is gearing up for the next season, there is speculation that previous season's judge Madhuri Dixit Nene is being replaced by another actress.
For the past four seasons, Madhuri's presence has been adding glamour to the show, but reports now suggest that in the upcoming season, the gorgeous actress won't be judging the contestants.
"As of now, Madhuri is definitely not doing Jhalak," a source told DNA.
However, it seems the actress and the makers are planning a surprise for viewers.
When asked about her plans to return to the dance reality show, the "Devdas" actress told the daily, "I don't want to spoil the surprise. Sometimes, suspense is good."
While it is still not known if the actress will join the team or not, a source close to the actress hinted at her presence on "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 8".
"For the last four seasons, people have tuned in to watch Madhuri on Jhalak. She has become the face of the show and has become synonymous with Jhalak. Colors and Madhuri share a great work relationship and if things work out, Madhuri will take the judge's seat yet again." the source told DNA.
There were also reports that the channel is willing to replace not just Madhuri but also celebrity judges Karan and Remo D'souza with some fresh faces from Bollywood.
Rumours indicate that Shilpa Shetty, who judged few seasons of another celebrity dance show "Nach Baliye", was approached to join the panel of judges for the upcoming season of "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa".
It now remains to be seen whether Madhuri surprises viewers by appearing once again on "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 8" or is replaced by another Bollywood beauty.
