Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9: Varun or Ranveer to replace Shahid Kapoor


Shahid Kapoor, who debuted on television last year as a judge of the dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’, may not be a part of the show in the upcoming season.

News has it that the channel had to face a lot of issues during the shooting because of him. Therefore, the makers are not so eager to continue with him this year and are looking for a suitable replacement.

According to reports, the new season will start in June and the makers are considering to rope in either Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh as the replacement. Both the actors have huge mass appeal and connect well with the youth. They have amazing dancing skills too.

The ratings of the show last season weren’t impressive either. Besides, there were reports of the ‘Haider’ actor having a tiff with host Manish Paul, and about his cold war with co-judge Malaika Arora. All these might have prompted the makers to replace Shahid and do a revamp this season.

Buzz is that Karan Johar, who left mid-way last season to direct his upcoming film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, will continue to judge this season. Jacqueline Fernandez is likely to replace Malika Arora Khan and there will be two additional choreographers, just like the previous season.
