Rithvik Dhanjani preferred to host
Nach Baliye along with Ye Hai Mohabbatein's
Patel, rather than Indian Idol Junior along with his
Negi. Karan will be seen hosting for the first time.
The reason for refusing to co-host with Asha is said to be Ekta.
Rithvik and Asha, who got appreciation for their pairing in Ekta's
Pavitra Rishta, couldn't say no,
when Ekta asked him to host her show.
According to reports, Rithvik had auditioned for Nach
Baliye first, when went fine. But the makers took time to
finalise as they were looking out for other option. When Rithvik
didn't get a call, he auditioned for Indian Idol Junior and gave a
nod to co-host with Asha. But later when Ekta finalised and wanted
him on her show, the actor couldn't say no to her.
Though Rithvik and Asha's fans will be disappointed not to see
their favourite couple hosting together, the good news is that the
duo will be seen performing in the inaugural ceremony of
Nach Baliye 7. The couple had been
winner in the previous season.
Rithvik and Asha started dating during their Pavitra
Rishta shoot. They portrayed the role of Arjun and Purvi in
the show. Recently, the makers of Yeh Hai Aashiqui had
approached them for a special episode on their love story. Asha who
is seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi 6, hurt her nose and Rithvik
came all the way to the Cape Town to see her. The couple along with
other participants had been for a dinner.
