Here’s what the writer wrote on his Facebook handle-

Hi All,
Happy to share that I shall be one of the judges for the new season of Nach Baliye on StarPlus.

Well, I am no dance expert! However, the show format has changed and apart from dance, there will be a lot of emphasis on couple chemistry, compatibility and team work. I will be focusing more on the latter parts. Also, as a motivation speaker, I hope I will be able to inspire the participants as well.

The main reason for me to do this was to reach deeper into India, as one of my goals is to touch as many Indians as possible in my lifetime. The more people I reach, the more people I can influence towards positive change. As one of the biggest shows on Indian television, Nach Baliye provided that opportunity.

Apart from that, I am also more involved in films now, where apart from storytelling, song and dance forms a big part. Being familiar with those forms will only help me get better as far as films are concerned. Finally, the show is a lot of fun and it is about time I took myself less seriously.

Yes, it is a risk. It could really work or I could end up making a fool of myself. And that is a little scary. However, in almost all my talks, I tell people to take risks. If I don’t do the same myself, I won’t be being true to my word.

Of course, like always, I will need and count on your support.

So, keep getting inspired, keep taking risks and yes, keep dancing!

Chetan Bhagat.

It is both funny and shocking that people could decide upon offering a writer to judge a reality dance show. We wonder how things will shape up on the show.
