In a shocking move, Sonakshi Sinha has been replaced by Malaika Arora on Nach Baliye 8. Yes, the Noor actress is no longer a judge on the show and Malaika will start shooting for her first episode soon. In fact, Nach Baliye was Malaika’s first show as a judge, so she is very excited to join it once again. However, the makers have a really good reason to replace Sona!
Sonakshi apparently has a few prior commitments over the next few weeks, which will keep her away from Nach Baliye 8. The actress was travelling for an International Tour,The Da-Bangg Tour along with Salman Khan since April 16. Now that it has ended, she will travel to South Africa and join Hrithik Roshan for another tour that she has committed to perform at already. This left the makers of Nach Baliye with no choice but to look for a replacement.
In her absence, glamorous Malaika Arora has taken her place, and shot for an upcoming episode. She looked absolutely ethereal in a gorgeous off shoulder, figure-hugging dress as she posed with the rest of the judges and the cast of Half Girlfriend – Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
Malaika has also been a part of Nach Baliye for the first two seasons and seen in other reality shows such as Zara Nachke Dikha, Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa and India’s Got Talent.
Meanwhile, Sonakshi will continue touring for her shows with South Africa as one of the destinations.
Season 8 of Nach Baliye has managed to keep the viewers hooked, thanks to popular faces of TV participating this year in the reality show. Siddharth Jadhav and wife Tripti are the latest couple who were eliminated this week.
Besides Malaika, director Mohit Suri and choreographer Terence Lewis are seen as judges, while Upasana Singh and Karan Tacker are the hosts.
