Malaika Arora Khan replaces Karan Johar to judge ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’

Malaika Arora Khan will replace filmmaker Karan Johar to judge the dance celebrity show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’. The channel has been roped in Malaika to judge the show after Karan Johar opted out. "Talks were on with her for some time, but Malaika had date issues. Now, everything is sorted and she has given her nod to the show," adds a source.

Karan Johar, who judged the four seasons of ‘Jhalak...’ has walked out to concentration on his next directional venture, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

Malaika will be joining Shahid Kapoor, Ganesh Hegde and Lauren Gottlieb. Malaika is a noted item girl and has many successful item songs under her credits from Chaiyya to Munni Badnaam. This is not Malaika first stint in television. She has also judged celebrity dance reality shows like Nach Baliye and Zara Nachke Dikha.

Karan Johar gave an emotional good-bye to the show. He tweeted, Was a hugely emotional day for me on the sets of #JhalakReloaded yesterday...thank you to the entire team for making me feel so special....

It was also reported that Farah Khan would be replacing Karan but the news turned out to be false.

"I have been reading a lot of news as well. I don't know why people suddenly are asking me this. The truth is, I have not even been approached to be a part of any show. Neither Jhalak nor Bigg Boss yet," Farah told.
