After Kishwer Merchant expressed her desire to be part of the eighth season of dance reality show Nach Baliye, it has emerged that Bigg Boss 9 finalist Mandana Karimi too has been approached for the show.
“The association between Mandana Karimi and Ekta Kapoor (who is producing Nach Baliye) goes long way. The actress was not only seen in Ekta’s latest film Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 but has also been spotted at various parties of Ekta Kapoor. The makers of Nach Baliye approached Mandana and although she has not signed the dotted line the actress is taking keen interest to star in the show,” a source told.
Kishwer Merchant some weeks back had said she was keen to do Nach Baliye with beau Suyyash Rai.
“Bigg Boss was a life changing experience for the good and I certainly want to continue doing more reality shows. So why not Nach Baliye with Suyyash Rai, as it will be a chance for our fans to see us together on screen again,” Kishwer had said in an interview.
If Mandana and Gaurav are finalised for the show, and Kishwer-Suyyash too sign on the dotted line, it will fulfill both Kishwer and Mandana’s desire to know each other better.
“I have said since the beginning that Mandana is fake on the show. She herself said once that this is not her true behaviour and she is very different in real life. So, you never know Mandana and I might become best of friends once we meet outside. I look forward to knowing her,” Kishwar had told.
Mandana too in her live chat after Bigg Boss finale had said she was very fond of Kishwer and would like to meet her outside the house.
So you never know; after participating in Nach Baliye 8, Mandana and Kishwer might become best friends.
Another Bigg Boss couple Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira were approached for Nach Baliye, but they couldn’t take it up as the dance based show was apparently being delayed.
