Nakuul Mehta backs out of Nach Baliye 6, wife injured

TV actor Nakuul Mehta who was one of the participants of ‘Nach Baliye 6’ backed out of the show due to wife Jankee’s knee injury. Jankee suffered injury when she was returning from Hong Kong after attending a show, she slipped and fell on the escalator. She suffered knee injury and doctors have advised her eight weeks bed rest.

When enquired, production house confirmed that the couple is not going to participate on the show.

“The doctors have asked her to rest for eight more weeks. We are hoping that she would recuperate in three weeks but that looks unlikely now. Nakuul who was highly excited about the show disappointed that they will miss out on the show. “We tried to work things out till last night, but we cannot take a chance with the injury,” says Nakuul.

Nakuul added, “She was very excited about the show and we were practising everyday. But the injury which she had sustained during one of her concerts (Jankee is a singer) played up during the rehearsals. Initially, Janki ignored it but the pain became unbearable.

When the doctors checked it they said it’s a knee cartilage issue and the only cure is rest. So, yesterday we had to take a call about NB6 and we decided not to go ahead with it.” 

“Now instead of rehearsing every night, we will be watching it,” jests Nakuul,

Other celebrity couples, taking part on the show, are Gurmeet Chaudhary-Debina Bannerjee, Kanika Maheshwari-Ankur Ghai, Amrapali Gupta-Yash Sinha, Raju Srivastav-Shikha, Kiku Sharda-Priyanka, Ripudaman Handa-Shivangi, Ridhi Dogra-Raqesh Bapat and Rithvik Dhanjani-Asha Negi.

The three judges Shilpa Shetty, Terence Lewis and Sajid Khan will be back as the three judges of the show and like earlier seasons Karan Wahi and Gautam Rode will once again entertain the audience with their dostana act.
