Manish Paul, the handsome/funny host is back on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa by replacing Drashti Dhami. The Colors reality show which was previously hosted by Kapil Sharma along with him is back to having Manish on board.
In a recent interview to a leading website, the Mickey Virus actor, Manish mentioned about how Drashti took the news about him replacing her. As Drashti is a dear friend to him, when he informed her about replacing her on Jhalak, she graciously accepted it and there wasn't any problem.
Manish was the host of the show previously and due to undisclosed reasons he had refused to host the show this season. In fact, he hosted Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6 with his good friend and competitor comedian, Kapil Sharma. When both Kapil and Manish refused to host the current season, the channel opted to have Drashti Dhami and Ranvir Singh.
Unfortunately when Drashti's hosting talents were not as good as her acting or dancing, she was asked to leave and that was when Manish entered the scene. When asked what exactly happened between the channel and Drashti, Manish declined of knowing anything about this issue.
Meanwhile, there were rumours that said Ranvir Shorey too is asked to quit the show. But the rumours are rubbished by the officials as well as Ranvir himself. The talk is that Manish and Ranvir are making a hit pair at hosting the dance reality show.
