Probably the most quirky and spontaneous anchor of the small screen, Manish Paul is once again gearing up to host the new season of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
While Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has joined the judge's panel this year, the makers are sticking to their ever-trusted Manish Paul, who will anchor the show for the fifth time in a row.
What is interesting about his association with the show this time is his fee.
As per the buzz, the Micky Virus actor will charge a hefty amount of Rs 2.5 crore for the show's season nine. This makes him the highest paid non-Bollywood actor host on the small screen.
The contestants' list of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 includes:
- Shakti Arora
- Shantanu Maheshwari
- Arjun Bijlani
- Karishma Tanna
- Helly Shah
- Surveen Chawla
- Nora Fatehi
- Gaurav Gera
- Priyanka and Poonam Shah
- Harpal Singh Sokhi
