Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Season 3 is going in for a major change. From the coming episode, Rohit Roy will take over as anchor replacing Shiv Pandit, while Shweta Tiwari will continue to co-host the show. 

The platform of Jhalak is not new to Rohit, as he was the anchor along with Mona Singh last year.

Rohit Roy confirmed this news and said, "It's great to be back on the most classy dance reality show. I am not only saying this as an anchor but as a viewer as well".

When asked about the reason for Shiv's abrupt exit from the show, Rohit stated, "I know him quite well and its not that he was not up to the mark; its just that few things just don't connect. It was a matter of great pride when Juhi remarked that my entry had taken the show up quite a few notches".

However, as per our khabroo, "Shiv left the show as he has to head for his movie project, and the schedules were clashing. There was another factor too which was his hosting, which was not up to the mark. Now, Rohit will be the permanent host of the show".

Another high point of this week's episode will be that Mona Singh will join in to host the show with Rohit Roy. "She is hosting the show for one episode only. Shweta will get back from Saturday's episode", quips our source.

Shiv Pandit on his part dismissed all allegations that he was dropped from Jhalak. "I had always been contracted for a particular number of episodes. I have had problems with Jhalak dates right from day one; anyways now that my contract is over I have moved on".  He got a bit defensive when pushed on the above allegation and said "I don't have time for such nonsense. Why should I believe anybody else when I know that everything between all the concerned parties is over.. Sony has been very good to me, both my big ticket anchoring shows ( Jhalak and IPL Season 1) have been with them", he ends.

When asked Monica Bedi about the new host, she quips, "I am glad that he is back in the show. His personality will surely add value to Jhalak. Audience will enjoy the show more now".

Rohit expressed his happiness at the level of performers the show has this season. "It is much more severe than the first two seasons. All the six contestants who remain are exceptional; also the remaining six who will fight it out in the Wild card round are perfect. My personal favorite in the round was Gauhar, as she was mind-boggling".

He finds the grace with which Ram Kapoor">Ram Kapoor dances despite his 90/100 kilos to be perfect. "Agreed he is more entertainment than dance, but Jhalak was never meant to be only dance. Hard Kaur is phenomenal and Karan Singh Grower is there to add the oomph element", he concludes.

Fans of Rohit will be delighted to see him host Jhalak…

Wow!! Mona and Rohit hosting together, even for one episode, will be a treat! I wish Mona would take up the show permanently, i might be tempted to watch then! :)
