Popular TV actor Shakti Arora is in talks to feature on the ninth season of the dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa”. The actor, best known for playing the role of Ranveer on “Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi”, says he is yet to sign the contract to appear on the celebrity reality show.
“I am right now only in talks with the makers of the show. I haven’t signed any contract yet. The show will start sometime in July so there is still time for that. We will see how it turns out,” Shakti told PTI. The 29-year-old actor says he is interested in doing only dance-based reality shows as of now.
“I would love to do only dance based reality shows as of now. I am really interested in those because I am not a good dancer, so that would be something.” Shakti is currently hosting the second season of the mythological series “Mann Mein Vishwaas Hai” airing on Sony.
The “Pavitra Rishta” actor initially wanted to take a break after wrapping up “Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi”, but came on board for the series as it portrays real life incidents related to God, faith, and miracles.
“The concept really fascinated me. It is amazing and something I have never been a part of. I wanted to go on a break after ‘Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi’ but the opportunity to anchor the show was really exciting.”
Shakti says for hosting the current series, he has to stick to the script and not try be more impromptu unlike his previous hosting stints on shows like “Gyaan Guru” and “Science with BrainCafe”.
“There was no worry factor for hosting the show except for the fact that I didn’t have to improvise on the script and stick to the written material because the Hindi used on the show is very pure and I had to maintain that,” he said.
