"Shahid is taking his small screen job seriously. He likes to go
through all scripts and oversee arrangements personally. While
shooting earlier this week, he was asked by the creative team to
host the show all of a sudden. He was simply handed the script and
told that it was for a surprise gig. However, he was sporting
enough to go ahead with their plan," a leading website quoted a
source close to the show.
However, Shahid will not be hosting throughout the season of
Jhalak.. and will be doing so just for an episode. It is said that
the episode will have Manish Paul getting kidnapped and so Shahid
will take over his place. The fun stint is expected to get a good
response from the viewers.
Shahid has replaced Madhuri Dixit as the judge of Jhalak
Dikhhla Jaa Season 8 and going by the response the newly-wed
actor is receiving, it is clear that he has won hearts with his
charm and wit. Hosting the show will not be a big deal for the
actor who is known for his spontaneity and witty one-liners.
