Whoa! Ranbir Kapoor to host Nach Baliye 8?

RK fans have got a reason to rejoice. Latest reports have it that Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has been approached to host the inaugural episode of dance reality show Nach Baliye season eight. The news has come as a big surprise for everyone as this is the first time when Ranbir will be doing some thing like this. Although we have seen him host award functions and promote his movies on reality shows, Nach Baliye 8 will mark the actor’s official debut on the small screen.

“Ranbir Kapoor will be perfect for the grand opening episode of Nach Baliye 8. We are very excited and have our fingers crossed to see Ranbir Kapoor set the stage on fire with his dance and stage presence as host! Ranbir is a natural dancer and he will surely set a benchmark for the 10 jodis and prep them up for the entire season. If things go as planned, we might be shooting later this week,” a source close to the production team told PinkVilla. If everything falls in place then Ranbir will be shooting the episode on Saturday, March 25. The episode will premiere on April 2 on Star Plus.

Initially, actor Karan Singh Grover and popular comedienne Upasana Singh were approached to host the dance reality show. Bipasha Basu was said to accompany husband Karan for the first episode. Karan and Upasana had even begun rehearsing. Upasana had infact declared the news in several interviews. But later a news broke-out that things aren’t working out between KSG and the makers. Yeh Hai Mohabbatein male lead Karan Patel was then brought into the picture. After many speculations, Karan Tacker‘s name got confirmed. His co-host is yet to be finalised.
