Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan to enter Nach Baliye 7 as a wild card entry?
Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and his wife Ayesha have been reportedly approached to enter celebrity dance-based reality show Nach Baliye 7 as a wild card entry.
“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,” a source close to the makers said.
The Star Plus show saw a twist in the current season, being produced by Ekta Kapoor.
In the seventh season of the show, the contestants are staying in a house and the audience voting system has been scrapped.
The seventh season of Nach Baliye is judged by Preity Zinta, author Chetan Bhagat and choreographer Marzi Pestonji. We also hear that eliminated contestants Sana Saeed and Dipesh Patel will be making an entry again in the show!
As per reports previously, the makers were also keen to rope in cricketer Shahid Afridi for Nach Baliye 7. They were close to finalising the signing amount when the batsman suddenly developed cold-feet. The reason being that it finally struck him that the show’s format involves couples rocking the dance floor. A source was quoted in the report as saying that, “Shahid was ready for a solo act but when told that his wife and he would have to groove together, he was taken aback. He categorically told us that he doesn’t want the whole world to see his wife dancing. He turned down the offer saying, `Biwi ko nahin nachana hai!’ Nobody could argue with that as it’s a personal call.”
