Nach Baliye: Geeta Phogat and Pawan Kumar to join show as contestants?
Nach Baliye in its ninth season unlike its previous ones will have multiple changes in its format. As the name of couple approached for the show started making noise, Salman decided to rope in former couples to spice up the show and add some much needed drama apart from the breath-taking dance performances that it offers every year.
Amidst rumours of Vishal Aditya Singh and Madhurima Tuli, Urvashi Dholakia and Anuj Sachdev, Parth Samthaan and Erica Jennifer Fernandes joining the show, Telly Chakkar has reported that wrestler couple Geeta Phogat and Pawan Kumar has also been approached for the show.
A source close to the project said, 'Geeta and Pawan were offered the previous season of Nach Baliye, but they couldn’t do it. However, this time around, they are seeming to be interested and there are high possibilities of them participating in the show.'
Geeta however, refused to divulge any details about the same when approached.
Nach Baliye 9 will be hosted by Jennifer Winget and comedian Sunil Grover.
Judges: There are reports that Raveena Tandon has been approached for the show. Salman Khan might be joining Raveena as a co-judge on the show. However, nothing has been finalized with the actress.
The dance-based reality show is expected to go on air in mid-July.
