Buzz is that 'Just Dance' will wrap up way before schedule
Touted as one of the most expensive show on Indian television, Just Dance was launched amidst much fanfare and huge expectations.
The cost of each episode was said to be between Rs 3.5-4 crore. But, alas, the show has not been able to garner the kind of viewership as was expected.
The main attraction of the show dancing sensation Hrithik Roshan and its celebrity choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant have surprisingly not been able to draw in the fans with their judging skills.
Unable to acquire enough ratings, Just Dance will wrap up by October, supposedly a good three weeks before schedule.
Of course, this could also be due to Hrithik's busy schedule he is shooting for Agneepath and has not been able to give Just Dance enough of his time.
Interestingly, the channel has tried its level best to make the show popular. Celebrity judges like Katrina Kaif and Govinda were roped in to push the TRPs.
The next episode will see TV actors Sushant Singh Rajput, Neha Marda, Sayantani Ghosh, Mouni Roy and Shaleen Bhanot promoting the top six contestants.
Buzz is the show will be replaced by Survivor India, a reality show. Shot mostly in Phillipines, it will have 11 celebrities competing with an equal number of commoners.
The one who maintains his/her grit will be announced the ultimate survivor and win the finale.
The celebrities in the show include Aditya Redij, Payal Rohatgi, JD Majethia, Karan Patel, Karishma Tanna and Munisha Khatwani amongst others.
Star Plus spokesperson Parull Sharma rubbished the rumours. "This is completely false. The show is doing fine and is on schedule. I wonder who is spreading these stories, which I suspect is done with a wrong purpose."
