Drashti Dhami’s recent exit from celebrity reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa came as a shock to her fans. And now, buzz is that her co-host Ranvir Shorey is on his way out as well. Sources claim that VJ Andy might replace him.

An insider says, "Discussions are on at the channel. The makers were not getting the desired results from Ranvir and Drashti in comparison to last seasons’ hosts, Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma. But their decision to let Drashti go was surprising as it was Ranvir who was getting more flak on social networking sites."

Now that Manish has been roped in, buzz around Ranvir’s possible exit is heating up.

"Andy’s name is being speculated since he has a long association with the channel. Though he was part of the same celebrity dance reality and was voted out recently, he might be a good option," says the insider.

Andy and Ranvir remained unavailable for comment while the channel did not wish to comment.
