Nach Baliye 8: Yuvraj-Hazel to contest as wild card entrants?

Popular celebrity couples are all set to raise temperatures in soon-to-be-aired dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye 8’. And if reports are to be believed, then newly married couple, cricketer Yuvraj Singh and his actress wife Hazel Keech, will also be matching their steps on the show.

The makers have approached Yuvraj and Hazel to participate in the show, and if everything goes according to plan, the audience will get to see the lovely couple setting the stage ablaze. However, Yuvraj and Hazel will not join the show at the outset, rather, they might enter as wild card contestants.

A popular entertainment portal quoted a source as saying, “Yuvraj will be busy with the IPL for the next two months but the channel is keen to have Hazel and him on board as wild-card entries, as the cricket league will be over by that time. They have been in talks for a while now and the channel is hoping that they sign up in the coming weeks."

Yuvraj and Hazel have previously sizzled the dance floor on their wedding sangeet and reception last year. The cricketer has also showed off his moves when he appeared as a celebrity guest at another dance reality show.

Meanwhile, the eighth season of ‘Nach Baliye’ will feature celebrity couples Divyanka Tripathi-Vivek Dahiya, Dipika Kakar-Shoaib Ibrahim, Mona Lisa-Vikrant Singh Rajpoot, Vikkas Manaktala-Gunjan Walia, Bharti Singh-Harsh Limbachiyaa among others.

Sonakshi Sinha, Mohit Suri and Terence Lewis will be the judges, while Karan Tacker and Karan Patel will turn hosts. There were also reports that Ranbir Kapoor will make his small screen debut as the host of the show for its premiere episode.

‘Nach Baliye 8’ is set to go on air on April 2 on Star Plus and will telecast every Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm.
