Shahid Kapoor will replace veteran actress Madhuri Dixit as a judge on the upcoming eighth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Colors channel CEO Raj Nayak took to Twitter on Monday to announce Shahid’s entry. “Colors welcomes the King of dance and actor par excellence @shahidkapoor to #JhalakDikhlaJaa Coming soon #YouthIcon,” he tweeted.

The 34-year-old actor, who has starred in films like Jab We Met, Kaminey and RRajkumar, started his career as a student of  choreographer Shiamak Davar. He has shown his dancing skills on different stages - both in India and abroad. This will be the first time the actor will be seen as a judge on a reality show. The names of his co-judges are yet to be announced.

Earlier, Madhuri, who was associated with the show for last three seasons, announced her departure in a statement saying she opted out of the show “to concentrate on another project” with the channel. “I have been on Jhalak... for three years now and I am taking a break to focus on other projects. I will be back shortly with probably something even more exciting. I wish Jhalak... the very best for a spectacular season,” she said.

The upcoming eighth season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is expected to go on air in July. IANS
