Mona aka Jassi Singh will be seen matching steps with well-known chef Sanjeev Kapoor on Sony TV's dance show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa that goes on air September 7, right about when STAR One proceeds with part two of Nach Baliye.
Apart from Mona and Sanjeev, other personalities lined up for Jhalak Dikhla Jaa include cricketer Ajay Jadeja, actress Rati Agnihotri, TV actress Sweta Salve, columnist and talk show hostess Pooja Bedi, TV actor Akashdeep Saigal and filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar.
Confirming the list, Sony's Anupama Mandloi told IANS: "The idea is to bring on interesting well-known celebrities who aren't professional dancers. To that extent I think we've managed quite a fair and impressive list."
The teaser trailers with each contestant went on air August 22.
Sony has roped in choreographer-director Farah Khan, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Shilpa Shetty to judge the show.
STAR One's Nach Baliye was hugely successful but Sony seems fearless of the competition.
"Our format and our presentation are totally different. We're very confident of our product," said Mandloi.
