MUMBAI - Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant will contest against her ex-boyfriend Abhishek Avasthi in an upcoming celebrity dance reality show “Zara Nachke Dikha”, to be aired on STAR Plus soon.
Rakhi, however, declined to comment on the issue.
“I am a performer. Whoever comes and performs, be it Abhishek (Avasthi), Shah Rukh or Aamir Khan, I am going to fight equally. I don’t care for anyone. I am not scared of any one. The girls team will win for sure,” Rakhi told reporters at a press conference Thursday.
Abhishek too did not dwell on it, saying: “Whoever does well will win.”
The programme would showcase a battle between sexes on the dance floor for over nine weeks. The selected female television artistes teamed up for the contest include Rakhi, Aditi Gupta, Hazel Crowney, Kritika Kamra, Mukti Mohan, Rashmi Desai, Sangeeta Ghosh, Sanjeeda Sheikh and Saparsh Kanchandani among others.
The male team comprises Aamir Ali, Avishek Avasthi, Angad Hasija, Karan Kundra, Karan Singh Grover, Aksshat Seluja, Siddhesh Pai, Sushant Rajput and Ayush Khedekar among others.
Monika Shergill, senior creative director of STAR Plus, said: ” ‘Zara Nachke Dikha’ would be aired across 40 countries on the same day, allowing viewers across the world to experience the glitz and glamour of the show in real time.”
The judges, hosts and the show timing are yet to be decided.
