There were rumours of Farah Khan replacing the Karan Johar as judge on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8. But according to the reports, it is gorgeous Malaika Arora Khan to step into the shoes of Karan.
The dancing diva, who is known for her dance numbers ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya', ‘Munni Badnaam Hui' and ‘Fashion Khatam Mujhpe', will be joining the judges panal consisting of Shahid Kapoor, Lauren Gottlieb and Ganesh Hegde.
One of the fan clubs of Malaika Arora Khan tweeted, "It's Official: Malaika Arora Khan is one of the judges of #JhalakReloaded ! Who's excited? ♥ #malaikaarorakhan."
Malika had previously judged dance reality reality shows - Nach Baliye Season 1 and 2, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4 and Zara Nachke Dikha. Malika was also seen with Karan judging India's Got Talent 5 and 6.

I have sampled some awesome performances on this season of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' and not to mention, some great entertainment by Karan and Shahid. The contestants are truly terrific. Hope to have a gala time on the show from here on."
