Kapil Sharma at loggerheads with Manish Paul

The latest Telly world buzz is that star comedian Kapil Sharma is likely to give the famous celebrity dance show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7’ (JDL) a miss. Reportedly, the reason is nothing other than his co-host Manish Paul.

According to sources, things have not been going too great with the two ‘great friends’, especially after the tremendous success of Kapil’s show ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ and the falling TRP rate of ‘Mad in India’ hosted by Manish.

But reports in the media have been suggesting that Kapil is unable to block time for JDL since he has other professional commitments. The comedian, for example, has been offered a three film deal with Yash Raj Films and that leaves no time for him to co-host the show. He will be juggling between shooting his debut film ‘Bank Chor’ and ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’.

A source was quoted in the media saying, “He has signed up three films and will be shooting simultaneously for Comedy Nights With Kapil and his movie ‘Bank Chor’. Last year, he had found it stressful shooting for ‘Jhalak..’ and ‘Comedy...’ Now with a film also, it will not be possible.”

Reports say that another popular comedian Bharti Singh has been approached by the JDJ team in place of Kapil to co-host the show with Manish Paul. Incidentally, Bharti had earlier participated in the show as a celebrity contestant.

The same source said, “Manish is likely to continue as the host and this time they will be looking for a female co-host. Bharti Singh who had participated in the last Jhalak... is one of the contenders.”

Bharti, who will be seen in the comedy show Gangs Of Hassepur (GOH) said that though she has not yet been approached, she would love to host ‘Jhalak...’

She reportedly said, “My two passions are comedy and dance. If I host ‘Jhalak..’ I will get an opportunity to dance.” As for GOH she would only be appearing as a guest performer for just four episodes, she added.

The judges for the show are once again Bollywood beauty Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar, the Colors dance reality show is again getting ready with a fresh set of celebrities. The only name that has been confirmed for this season till now is that of Purab Kohli. To know the rest of list of contestants viewers have to wait a little longer.
