Buzz is makers are looking to replace Shahid Kapoor as the celebrity judge
Rumours are rife that Shahid Kapoor might get replaced as the judge for Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9. Shooting for the new season will start post June and makers are busy looking at options. It seems Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh are being considered strongly as top contenders for the hot seat. Both these actors have a mass appeal and a youth connect. They are known for their dancing skills as well. Last year, the ratings of the show weren't too encouraging and makers are looking for a revamp.
Karan Johar will be retained while Jacqueline Fernandez is likely to step into Malaika Arora Khan's shoes. Plus, they will have two choreographers as last season.
It should be noted that last year Shahid Kapoor reportedly had a tiff with anchor Manish Paul. There were stories of how he had a cold war going with Malaika as well. We guess that too might have prompted the makers to do a re-think.
When we got in touch with the channel, the official spokesperson said they would not like to comment on speculations.
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has a good line-up of actors this year with Arjun Bijlani, Siddharth Nigam, Mandana Karimi, Nora Fatehi, Shakti Arora, Yuvika Choudhary being some of the names roped in for the show. With the star power being quite high, the makers are now looking at a kickass Bollywood quotient.
