The quintessential diva of Bollywood has been approached to judge the dance reality show. Will Rekha follow in the footsteps of Amitabh Bachchan and make her television debut?
Amitabh Bachchan did it, Shahrukh Khan did it and so did Salman Khan.Why then should the most glamorous lady of B-town lag in showcasing her real side to the world, especially in a time when television has become such a huge draw? A little birdie tells us that Rekha has been approached to judge Nach Baliye – the reality dance show where celebrity couples shake a leg to clinch the coveted title.
After four long years off the air Nach Baliye is coming back and the channelwallah’s are leaving no stone unturned to make a big shoo-sha about the show. And just imagine the kind of popularity (and TRPs, of course) the show will generate, if Rekha is on it! The legendary actor has been approached in the past too for innumerable TV appearances, but Rekha always turned down those offers…politely, of course.
But given Madame Re’s love for dance and the show’s huge prospect of making the diva the biggest judge ever on any reality show – besides the unimaginable moolah the star would have been offered – she could be tempted this time. We certainly hope so!
We also hear that Farhan Akhtar and newlyweds Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh have also been approached to be judges on Nach Baliye.
It’s an open secret that A-list celebs are craving to get their fair share of fame on television. Big B made KBC popular on the small screen, and the Khan boys Salman, Aamir and Shahrukh followed in his footsteps. And now it’s time for THE lady herself, the moment for Rekha to bask in the glory of the glamorous small screen. Right, BollywoodLifers?
