MUMBAI: After Drashti Dhami’s departure as an anchor on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, rumours of Ranvir Shorey also being persuaded to quit as co-anchor have been doing the rounds.
However Ranvir completely trashes these rumours .When asked if he was quitting Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Ranvir replied, “False news.As usual.”
While Ranvir had no more to say on the issue a source close to the show said, “Drashti’s departure left everyone on the show including the judges Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and Remo d’Souza very surprised. We had no clue why she was asked to leave so suddenly. Ranvir, we thought , would also go. Somehow his sense of humour is found to be too dry for the show. But he stays. We’ve been very clearly told Ranvir is not leaving.”
However Ranveer’s anchoring, we are told, leaves many hankering for a broader humour.
“Expect a lot of guests to come to liven up the show,” says the source from the show.
