Nach Baliye Season 8 marks its beginning with shooting the first episode with celebrity contestants and judges
Shooting for the much awaited celebrity reality show Nach Baliye Season 8 finally commenced on March 25, 2017. The first episode of the show was shot in Mumbai with the celebrity couples performing in front of the judges amidst great fun! This season the celebrity judges include, Sonakshi Sinha, Terence Lewis and Mohit Suri!
From shaking a leg with ‘Monalisa-Vikrant’ on Bhojpuri songs, to dancing to Pritam’s kids tunes, from loving the romance between Divyanka-Vivek to laughing to bits with Bharti Singh-Harsh’s act, the Judges were in love with the 10 celebrity couples on board this season.
Hosted by Karan Tacker and Upasana Singh, this time the show’s theme is Romance-Wala Dance. All the celebrity couples are expected to showcase their hidden side, which comes out when a person is in love.
While talking about being a judge on the reality show, Sonakshi shared, “We had a gala time on the first episode itself. I was always been excited about the show as my mom used to watch it closely. Getting the opportunity to judge now and watching the love and romance between the jodis is enthralling and interesting. I’m a complete romantic person at heart and I’m looking forward to having a rocking season of Nach. Let the power of Nach Begin!”
Earlier reports had claimed that Preity Zinta would be on the judge’s panel but later then Parineeti Chopra was approached. However, things didn’t pan out well for either due to unavailability of dates and finally, show makers managed to rope in Sonakshi Sinha.
Here’s what all the celebrity couples competing on Nach Baliye Season 8 did for the show’s opening episode –
