The show might have worked wonders for her ‘comeback’ to limelight, but Madhuri Dixit might have to bid goodbye to her role of a celebrity judge on the dance reality series.
Having signed on as the brand ambassador of a newly launched competitor entertainment channel has posed a problem for Mads’ contract with the dance reality show.
According to a source close to the new channel, “The next season of the dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa will begin post IPL. However, the channel is now in two minds about Madhuri’s participation in the show.”
In fact, the channel even held a meeting to decide whether to carry on with Mads or rope in a new celebrity judge for the next season of the show. “Madhuri has signed on as the brand ambassador of a competitive channel. This is a cause of concern for the broadcasters,” added our source. Interestingly, the new channel doesn’t have a problem in letting go of their brand ambassador to judge a reality show in a competitor channel.
A source close to the actress said that the Jhalak broadcasters had even discussed the possibility of continuing the next season of the show with the actress some time last week.
