Vidya Balan turns down Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa!

Vidya Balan turns down Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa!

The Dirty Picture diva was offered to judge the dance reality show, which she turned down due to health reasons

With more and more actors juggling films and TV shows, most actors get approached either to host, judge or act in television, Vidya Balan too was approached to judge a dance reality show, but Bobby Jasoos star turned it down because of health reasons. A source from the TV industry says, “She was approached for the current season of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. Madhuri Dixit Nene has judged one season, and this time the channel was looking for a change.” Vidya is known for her spunk and would make for a spirited and brutally honest judge.

When asked if she has been approached to host or judge shows. Vidya says, “It’s interesting that you asked because I came close to doing that very recently, just at the time that I wasn’t feeling well, which is why I had to decide against that, but there was a very interesting show idea that had come my way to host-cum-judge a reality show.”

When asked what kind of stuff would interest her on TV — a soap? Vidya laughs, “No! The only thing that would interest me would be something to do with films or acting. It could maybe be a show, which discovers new talent but the format would have to be something that I am comfortable with.”

    This is definitely a cooked up story. First of all Madhuri did the show 3 times not once. JDJ’s TRP skyrocketed only after Madhuri joined in JDJ4. It is a very well known fact, she is the highest paid female Bollywood actor on TV, this is also a fact. JDJ makers were trying to get her on board since JDJ3 and finally they convinced her to do the show. JDJ cannot even dream of having the show without her. I think you are trying make an analogy of KBC, where Amitabh was replaced by SRK at one point.

    Secondly, even Vidya did not hear this, She was offered a show but not Jhalak as understand from her supposed “answer”.

    Nice try to cook up a story, but failed massively.

    “Madhuri Dixit Nene has judged one season, and this time the channel was looking for a change…” There you go. EXAMPLE OF A COMPLETE RUBBISH STORY. Why do you write such stuff and make yourselves look stupid and ignorant?!!!
    This is the 4th season of Jhalak that Madhuri is judging. Madhuri is the heart of the show and will always remain so.
    PLEASE DO SOME RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM. Such sick mentality among Indian journalists.
