With the auditions of Zee TV
's upcoming show DID Doubles getting underway, the channel has finalized the three Masters who will be in charge!!
TellyBuzz had earlier reported that Rajeev Surti, Shiamak Davar
and Geeta Kapoor might get on board as judges, but there is a slight change to it now!!
Our source tells us, "The channel wanted young blood as judge for the show, once their brand names Remo D'Souza and Terrence Lewis refused to be part of DID Doubles. That is one reason why they roped in Rajeev Surti. When the channel expressed its desire to Shiamak Davar
, he readily gave them an option to choose one of his assistants from his dancing troupe".
We hear that Marzi Pestonji, a budding choreographer in Bollywood has been chosen by the channel as the third judge. Marzi has been part of Shiamak Davar
's Institute for the Performing Arts for the past 14 years. Shiamak was more than happy to give away his place to his famous assistant.
"Jay Bhanushali has been confirmed as host for the show. Saumya Tandon will not be part of the show; the channel had approached Manish Paul but a decision on this has not been taken yet", states our source.
When contacted, Ashish Golwalkar, Non Fiction Head, Zee TV
confirmed our news stating, "The three masters for DID Doubles will be Geeta Kapoor, Rajeev Surti and Marzi. Jay Bhanushali will be hosting the show, but the co-host has not been finalized yet".
We hear that Marzi will be looking after the contemporary and jazz form of dance styles in the show.. Reporter and Author: Srividya Rajesh
