According to recent sources, Colors TV has roped in actor
Shorey to host Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7,
replacing the very popular Manish Paul. It was already confirmed that
Comedy Nights' Kapil Sharma is too busy to be a part of
this season either as host or participant, but this news comes as
quite a surprise to the die-hard Manish Paul fans, as earlier
reports had suggested that Manish will be retained by the channel
as the host of JDJ7.
Ranvir Shorey is currently a participant in Khatron Ke
Khiladi 5. His USP on the show is the ease with which he
performs the given challenges, peppered with his signature wit that
leaves the audience and his fellow participants in splits. The
actor has previously hosted successful shows like Ranvir Vinay
Aur Kaun? and The Great Indian Comedy Show, which
aired on Star One.
It will now be interesting to see how strong the chemistry
between Ranvir Shorey and his Jhalak co-host will be, but
the hilarious jodi of Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma will undoubtedly
be missed. In all probablility, comedian Bharti Singh
is expected to be his hosting partner. She has not confirmed
anything, but says she would be more than happy if the opportunity
comes her way. Bharti had participated on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa
5, but withdrew after reaching the top five.
With the end of Manish Paul's Mad In India, the reason for the
change of the host of JDJ 7 is believed to be the films
that he has in the pipeline. After the success of his recently
released film Mickey Virus, Manish is currently shooting for Tere
Bin Laaden 2 along with Ali Zafar and Sikander Kher.
