Mumbai: With the eighth season of Nach Baliye coming soon, the final list of penalists and contestants has been confirmed.
Sonakshi Sinha will be accompanied by Saroj Khan and Terence Lewis in the panelists of Nach Baliye 8. With Nach Baliye 8, Sonakshi Sinha will be making her second appearance on small screen. Earlier, the actress has judged Indian Idol Junior.
She says the audience has grown out of the perception that if a film star works on the small screen, he or she is out of work in Bollywood. Sonakshi last judged the singing reality show, Indian Idol Junior. The actor, who has Noor up for release next month, is currently shooting for the remake of 1969 thriller Ittefaq. According to her, lines between movies and the small screen have blurred today.
Sonakshi said she was actively looking for an opportunity to return to television because she enjoyed her debut a lot.
“I was always looking for something, if not better, but as good as Indian Idol to be a part of. When Nach Baliye came to me, I immediately connected for the dance factor. At this point, I thought this would be the best thing for me to do. It’s not just dance but the show is also about couples and their stories. So, that’s exciting,” she said.
While on Indian Idol, Sonakshi judged common people, Nach Baliye will have celebrity participants. But the change in nature of contestants will not affect her way of measuring the performances.
“I don’t know if I am a cautious person per say because I am real and honest. If I like or dislike, it shows on my face. That’s something people like and relate with. But I also know how to put my thoughts in a nice way so that no one is offended,” Sonakshi said while answering if she will be careful with her words considering the participants are famous people.
