Nach Baliye season 5: Sania Mirza, Karan Singh Grover, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Anas Rashid on the list!

The fifth season of the dance celebrity reality show is all set to kickstart on Star Plus. So what’s in store?

Last heard, the producers of Nach Baliye were trying to rope in tennis player Sania Mirza and her Pakistani cricketer husband Shoaib Malik for the fifth season of the show. And guess what, the mission’s accomplished! Birdies also chirp that apart from Sania and Shoaib, this season will feature wrestler Khali and his wife Harminder, television actors Karan Singh Grover (of Qubool Hai) with biwi Jennifer Winget (of Teri Meri Love Stories), Kanchi Kaul (of Ek Ladki Anjaani Si) with Shabbir Ahluwalia (of Laagi Tujhse Lagan), Karan Mehra (of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai) and fiance Nisha Rawal (of Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki) and Anas Rashid (of Diyaa Aur Baati) with Rati Pandey (of Hitler Didi).

What’s more, if the shoot is on schedule, the fifth season will hit the small screen by December 2012-January 2013. Well, we feel the excitement building up in the fans as this reality show, unlike the others, will be back on TV after four long years. The fourth season of Nach Baliye was aired in October 2008 and it ended when Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Sheikh won the competition.

But this buzz gives way to another question in our minds: Who will judge the fifth season of Nach BaliyeRekha, Farhan Akhtar, Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh, as rumoured? While these are the names that have been popping up in the discussions, guess it’s time to wait and watch who finally makes it to the show. Teehee!
