The upcoming season dance reality show Nach Baliye is getting everyone quite anticipated. The ninth season has been in the making since a while now. This year there has been several changes that have been made in the show. Right from the producers getting changed to the concept being tweaked. The ninth edition of the series will be helmed by Salman Khan's production and will also see estranged couples participating and shaking a leg on the show. While the makers are still figuring out the participants BollywoodLife has got an exclusive dope that there's a popular couple that rejected the offer.
A source reveals that TV couple Ashish Sharma and Archana Taide were approached by the makers for the dance reality show. Ashish was last seen in Prithvi Vallabh and has participated in another celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhlajaa. The actor even won the title of the show, which has been discontinued for now. However, a source close to the actor confirms that Ashish declined the offer. "Both Ashish and Archana are quite busy with their work. While Ashish is busy with his film assignments and digital series, Archana is focused on her production house. In fact, the two are even planning to roll out two films in the coming few months under their home production. The couple has been offered the show since four seasons, and they have rejected all of them."
When we contacted the actor who is currently busy with the promotions of his movie Khejdi, he confirmed the development with us. He said, "Doing a show like Nach Baliye requires a lot of time for a stretched period of 3-4 months, every time it came our way we both were busy with some or the other show individually. After doing Jhalak and Rangarasiya both at the same time, Archana and I made a pact to never mix a reality show with other projects as it requires that much commitment. That's why it is not possible for both me and Archana right now as our hands are full with two projects ready to roll under our own banner Rachayita films and we won’t be able to do justice to the format of the show."
As per the latest reports in media, Naamkarann actress Aditi Rathore has also been approached for the show along with her ex-boyfriend, Shreedhan. Ex-couples Madhurima Tuli-Aditya Raj Singh, and Aly Goni-Natasha Stankovic have apparently given a nod to the show. Abhinav Shukla and Rubina Diliak is another couple that has been confirmed for the show.
Coming back to Ashish, earlier in an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, the actor had mentioned how he doesn't mind rejecting work and is not insecure about. He said, "Firstly, I've earned the power to say no. It is more about the belief that I have in myself. Secondly, there's never been a phase where I'm looking for work. I've always been working. I have my production house, so I'm always working on something. I'm never ideal. I have conquered that struggle of getting work long time back. Also, you have to say no to things to do good work."
Well, that explains why Ashish didn't think twice before rejecting the dance reality show fourth time in a row!
