Bakthiyaar and Tanaaz Irani have been reality show celebs who have appeared on shows like Bigg Boss and Nach Baliye. But now, it looks like it’s their son Zeus’s turn. The five-year-old might be participating in the upcoming dance show, India’s Dancing Stars.

When asked if they are going to let Zeus take part in the show, Tanaaz says, “We are yet to decide on that, although 14 kids from our dance institute T &B (in Dubai) will definitely take part in the show.”

Star Plus approached the couple after they saw Zeus dance to Psy’s ‘Gangnam style’ on Nach Baliye. The channel probably felt that having a celebrity kid on the show would be an added attraction.

Being a mom and having done reality shows herself, Tanaaz is aware of the pressures that come with the job. “I am  against exposing kids to all this at such a young age. But if we can work it out in such a way that it does not hinder his studies, I will be fine with it,” she says.

The auditions of India’s Dancing Stars are currently taking place in Guwahati. The Mumbai chapter will begin mid March. The show will replace Nach Baliye towards March end.
