The celebrity dance based reality show Nach Baliye which promises to be ‘too much’ this season is gearing up to include some wild card entries to spice up the show. It is reported that cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and his wife Ayesha Mukherji have been approached to get them on the stage as a wild card entry.

“We are in talks with Shikhar Dhawan to make a special wild card entry to the show. It will shake things up and it will be good to see him perform on the stage with us,” according to sources related to the show.

Meanwhile dancer-choreographer Mayuresh Wadkar and his girlfriend Ajisha Shah and Shefali Jariwala and her husband Parag Tyagi hve been chosen as wild card entries. While Mayuresh excused himself from another dance reality show where he was a mentor, to participate in Nach Baliye 7, ‘Kaanta Laga’ girl Shefali Jariwal a and Parag had already participated in the fifth season of the show.  

The show being aired on Star Plus is produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji telefilms and is being judged by actress Preity Zinta, celebrity author Chetan Bhagat and choreographer Marzi Pestonji.

The format of the show has undergone some changes this year. The participating couples are staying separately from their partners and certain activities are held throughout the week to measure the depth of their relationship. The audience voting system has also been scrapped.

Meanwhile, cricketers Krishnamachari Srikant and S Sreesanth have also participated in another dance show. Sreesanth had been banned from playing cricket following a spotfixing scandal.

It will be interesting to see how Shikhar Dhawan will perform in the show.
