Pritam Singh of ‘Bigg Boss 8’ to co-host ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 8’

Celebrity dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhala Jaa’ season 8 will not only have two new judges, but a new host as well.

RJ (Radio Jockey) Pritam Singh of Red FM, who became a known face after his stint in ‘Bigg Boss season 8’, has been roped in to co-host the show along with the popular and favourite Manish Paul.

Pritam, affectionately called Pritam Pyaare was only a familiar voice until he participated in the last edition of ‘Bigg Boss’ where he went on to become a finalist. The RJ came across as a very sensible person in the reality show. He is known for his wits and comic timing which he is sure to bring on the stage of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.

The voice behind ‘Gyarah Se Do Bhabhi Ka Show’ was an uncontroversial and decent guy on a  show like ‘Bigg Boss’ known for bickering and arguments among the house mates. Before the show which made him a house-hold name, Pritam was also cast in a Bollywood movie. He appeared in a small role of a villain in the 2003 film ‘Escape from Taliban’ starring Manisha Koirala.

He had also participated in and won the first season of another reality show ‘Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki’ in 2013.

Meanwhile, the show which has confirmed actor Shahid Kappor and choreographer Ganesh Hegde as replacement of Madhuri Dixit Nene and Remo D’Souza respectively, is gearing up to go on floors on June 29. The show will begin airing from July 11 on Colours television.
