Shamita Shetty to take part in ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’

Onetime judge Shamita Shetty will now participate on the dance based show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. The actress who is out of the limelight for quite a long time has been reportedly approached for the show.

"Discussions are on over the monies and Shamita may sign on the dotted line soon," says a source. When contacted, Shamita neither accepted nor denied the news. "If at all that happens, the channel will make an announcement. Can't say anything more," she said.

‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, a celebrity dance show is being judged by filmmaker Karan Johar, talented Madhuri Dixit and ace choreographer Remo D’Souza’. Karan who has judged the three seasons of the dance opted out of the show for some unknown reasons.

A source says, "Initially, the plan was to bring in a fourth judge on the panel. The makers were in talks with a few celebrities and Shilpa Shetty had agreed to come on board. However, Karan has now opted out due to work commitments. So, the show will have three judges like before."

The source adds, "Last year, Karan gave a break to Jhalak contestant Siddharth Shukla in 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya'. His next venture also features Siddharth and is expected to go on floors around June, but that is around the same time that the show kick starts. He will be busy with outdoor shoots and therefore, won't be able to give time to the show."
