The names of the 13 contestants are also revealed by the organizers.

Drashti has not yet met Ranvir Shorey.

"I guess we?re both very busy with our careers. I am yet to meet Ranvir. But I know he's fantastic with his quips and repartees whereas it is the first time as a host for me. So yeah, I am nervous. We need to establish a comfort level between us before the show begins," she said.

Earlier it was reported that stand-up comedian Bharti Singh will co-host the show with Ranvir.

The 13 celebrity contestants of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ are VJ Andy, Bollywood actors Purab Kohli and Sophie Choudry, cricketer S Sreesanth, singer Sukhwinder Singh, TV actors Ashish Sharma, Karan Tacker, Kritika Kamra, Puja Banerjee, Mouni Roy, Kiku Sharda, Shakti Mohan and Akshat Singh.

Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and choreographer Remo D?souza will judge the show. The show will go live from June.  

Ranvir who started his career as a VJ will host the seventh season of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, a celebrity dance show aired on Colors channel.

It is expected that Ranvir's great sense of humor will take the show to a new height and give it a new identity. Ranvir is not only excited to host the show but he is highly excited to meet Madhuri Dixit as he is a die-hard fan of the actress. The actor who worked with Madhuri in ‘Aaja Nachle’ is looking forward to meet the dancing diva yet again.

A source close to the show said: "Looking at his fantastic comic timing during stressful situations in Khatron Ke Khiladi, we thought that Ranvir would be the best choice for Jhalak."

"The creative team is certain that he would do absolute justice to the show as an anchor. He shares an excellent camaraderie with all the contestants as well as the judges. When we approached him with the offer, he was equally excited to take up the project and get groovy on the floor. People have known Ranvir for his comic timing, acting prowess. Then he showed his 'khiladi' side to the world. Who knows, now the viewers might get to see him shaking a leg as well."
