Celebrity dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" is gearing up for its ninth season. While the show is still in its initial stage, a few names of possible contestants have surfaced online.

According to a report in India Forums, television actor Shakti Arora of "Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi" fame has been approached to participate on the show.

"Bigg Boss 8" contestant Sonali Raut has also been approached to participate on the reality show. "There has been a verbal agreement. We are discussing monies now," Sonali had told the Times of India.

In other news, Shakti will soon be seen hosting the second season of cult television show "Man Mein Hai Visshwas." The show will feature different real-life incidents of people based on their beliefs. The first season of the show, hosted by TV actor Nitish Bharadwaj, was aired eight years ago.
