Nach Baliye has been one of the most popular dance reality shows on television. With season 9 all set to premiere on July 19th, fans are super psyched to see the celebrity jodis shredding the dance floor. This season has an exciting theme - the show will have a mix of ex-couples and current couples fighting for the coveted trophy. It’s gonna get spicy. Are y’all ready?
Produced by Salman Khan, the show will have celebrity jodis like wrestler Geeta Phogata with Pawan Kumar, the TV Naagin AKA Anita Hassanandani with hubby Rohit Reddy and the iconic vamp Urvashi Dholakia with Anuj Sachdeva. With all the buzz around the upcoming season, we have another scintillating news for all the fans. Can you guess who is the highest paid celebrity on the show?
Featuring as the hottest bahu in all Ekta Kapoor serials, Anita Hassanandani is reportedly the highest paid celeb in the competition this year.
According to a report in a leading daily, a source said, “Anita was approached even in the earlier seasons, however, due to some reason or the other, she didn't end up signing the show. This year, the makers have offered her a meaty amount to participate in the show, which she couldn't refuse.”
(umm… who would?)
Anita was last seen in supernatural drama Naagin 3 and she also portrayed the character of Shagun on Star Plus’ Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. The actress recently revealed that she always wanted to be a part of Nach Baliye: “I love to dance and I always wanted to be a part of Nach Baliye but couldn't take it up earlier owing to prior commitments. Now that I have more time on hand with fewer commitments, I can focus entirely on the show and do justice to all the performances.”
When she was asked about how she’s gearing up for the show, Anita said, “I am dancing after a long time, so I am right now working on myself and warming up my body. I'm trying to give my best in everything my choreographers are teaching me.”
Anita will be seen on the show with her husband Rohit Reddy, who’s a successful businessman and entrepreneur from Goa. From undertaking joint business ventures to going for scenic vacations together, this couple, who’s been married for nine years, has the cutest love story!
According to the grapevine, Manish Paul will be the host of Nach Baliye season nine, while actress Raveena Tandon and choreographer Ganesh Acharya will be a part of the judging panel.
