Bollywood actress Preity Zinta has denied rumours that she is opting out of the current season of dance reality show Nach Baliye. Zinta, 40, who is one of the judges on the show's seventh season, is "surprised" to hear the rumours.
"To be honest, I am quite surprised to hear rumours that I am quitting the show and not there on time when I am always first one to arrive. Strange na," she posted on her Twitter page.
There were reports that the Veer Zaara star was getting replaced after she was missing from an episode, which was judged by choreographer- director Remo D'Souza along with show's regular mentors Marzi Pastonji and Chetan Bhagat.
Preity also tweeted that she is back on the show. "In the sets of Nach Baliye," she wrote alongside a picture of herself with Marzi. The reality show took off with 11 celebrity couples and is now left with seven pairs of TV stars.
Ekta Kapoor the producer of the show recently had denied all the rumours that there are no plans of replacing Preity as a judge of the Star Plus show. "Preity has been our choice for the showNach Baliye right from the start and news about her leaving the show is absolutely rubbish. These are complete rumours and have no truth."
"We have a judging panel with varied views, but that's exactly what brings different lens towards a relationship. Preity had informed us about her absence during one episode of the shoot on account of her grandmother's surgery well in advance so that we could plan the shoot with Remo (D'Souza)," Ekta had added.
