The ninth season of Nach Baliye, the dance reality show, is set to hit the screens beginning July. Produced by Salman Khan, the show will have Jennifer Winget and Sunil Grover as hosts but latest reports suggest the show’s premiere will be hosted by Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya. Divyanka and her husband Vivek Dahiya were the winner of the eighth season. According to a source, the show runners have signed the last season’s winner to host the grand premier of the Nach Baliay 2019.
"The makers have locked Divyanka to host the first episode which is the grand premiere of Nach Baliye,” says the source. “Whether or not Vivek will be a part of it is yet to be known, but the jodis along with the host will mostly be shooting for the premiere episode on July 2 in Mumbai."
Confirming the news to Pinkvilla, Divyanka said, “Vivek and I are doing it together for the pre-launch episode. I always wanted to host with Vivek. I'm very happy that we got this opportunity in Nach which has been a very important part of our life."
Divyanka has previously hosted “The Voice” so the job is not unknown territory to her. The couple is currently in Macau enjoying a mini vacation ahead of their third marriage anniversary.
The season nine of the reality show has an amalgamation of ex-couples coming together for the first time to dance. It will also see married couples. The channel revealed Urvashi Dholakia along with Anuj Sachdeva and Vishal Singh along with Madhurima Tuli to be the first two contestant couples. Other stars participating in this year’s Nach Baliye include Anita Hassanandani, Rohit Reddy, Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla.
