The search is on for the host of "The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", an upcoming reality series. If sources are to be believed, its makers have approached actors Ayub Khan and Sameer Soni to take it up.
Ayub, who is currently seen in "Uttaran" as Jogi Thakur, has reportedly refused to do the show because he is facing severe time constraints as his track in the show has picked up. The actor has even refused to various movie roles, it is said.
Sameer too is said to have been approached with the offer around a week ago.
Confirming the same, he said: "Yes, I have been approached. But nothing has been finalised as of yet. Talks are on."
Earlier, rumours were rife that the show's producers, SOL Production Pvt. Ltd., had even offered the anchor's space to "Vicky Donor" star Ayushmann Khurrana.
"The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", which will go on air on Life OK, is a spin-off from US reality dating show "The Bachelor".
The reality show will feature actress Mallika Sherawat as the eligible "bachelorette", while contestants will be competing to be her beau. Based in Rajasthan, the show will showcase Mallika's journey towards finding a companion for herself.
The show is likely to be launched in August.
