The show manages to create news day after day. And the launch date is still to be announced. It has been reported that one the nine celeb participants was Sachin Pilgaonkar. But news now has it that Varun Badola who is currently seen in Ek Chabi Hai Pados Mein has replaced Sachin. After exercising his vocal his chords in Jhoom India the actor is now all set to show his jalwa in Yeh Hai Jalwa.
Speaking about why he backed out of the show, Sachin says, â€œI had to opt out of the show, Yeh Hai Jalwa, because of my film. The post production work has started and dubbing will start on the 5th of March.â€ Elaborating further, he says, â€œThe film is slated for release on the 11th of March. And this film is like my baby and requires me more than anything else as it is directed, produced and distributed by me and I am acting in it too. I am disappointed that I will not be able to do this show, as dance is one of my passions, but I will be under constant stress with my film. If it was judging I would have gladly done it but with the pressure of my film I will not be able to do justice to my performances in the show.â€
Even earlier I did get offers but refused for this same reason. Now the post- production work has begun. The movie has been made under my banner and Iâ€™m also acting in it. As I am involved in many aspects it gives me little time to take up any other project,â€ he avers.
Varun will be heading Sachinâ€™s team known as â€˜Gurukulâ€™ which consists of senior citizens.
This one is surely worth a dekko.
Who then will be replacing Sachin in the show? Sources reveal that Varun Badola has been approached to fill in the spot vacated by Sachin. When contacted, Varun said, â€œI havenâ€™t made a decision as yet. Talks are still going on and nothing is finalized as yet.â€ But are you interested in doing another reality show after all the controversies associated with your previous show? Varun replies, â€œI do not have aversion towards reality show. Itâ€™s just that the schedule gets very hectic. And I want to understand the whole concept of the show before I make a decision.â€
9Xâ€™s new reality show, Yeh Hai Jalwa, has some of the most popular faces of the industry participating in it, right from Prachi Desai to Rakhi Sawant and Shweta Tiwari and Ronit Roy, Rohit Roy, Sharad Malhotra to Hussain Kuwajerwala. But rumor has it that one of the stalwarts of the industry, Sachin Pilgaonkar who was to participate in the celebrity dance show, has backed out due to date issues. The Telly Buzz team got in touch with Sachin to find out if itâ€™s the truth and also got to know whoâ€™ll be stepping in his shows.
Although Varun says he hasnâ€™t made a decision as yet, our reliable source confirms that he has taken up the offer. Well, Varun sure made a name in singing, now it remains to be seen if he can conquer the hearts of the audience yet again, after Nach Baliye with his dancing skills.
