Madhuri to judge Deepika Padukone's dance moves

Bollywood dancing diva Madhuri Dixit may soon be judging the dance moves of Deepika Padukone this December on a popular dance reality show.
The producers of 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' are in talks with the Madhuri and Deepika for the fourth season of the Sony TV show, a production house source said.
Madhuri, who ruled Bollywood in the late 1980s and 1990s, left the limelight after her marriage in 1999.
Fondly remembered for popular dancing numbers like 'Ek Do Teen', 'Choli Ke Peechhe', 'Dhak Dhak', the actress is considering the small screen offer seriously.
Actor Sonu Sood, who has become a hot property in Bollywood after playing the bad guy in the superhit 'Dabanng', is also being considered as a contestant.
Adding a twist to the show would be political leaders, who would try their hand at dancing, creating an eclectic mix of participants and judges.
"We are also trying to rope in wives of some popular politicians," the source added.
Being produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' follows the same format as the international program 'Dancing with the Stars', which has become a global phenomenon.
The Danish Prime Minister's wife had taken part in series five of the Danish version of the show, while Italy's fifth season saw royalty take part for the first time in dancing history when Prince of Venice Emmanuel Filiberto won the series.
"The fourth season promises to be bigger and bolder than the successful seasons before it. We are working closely with Sony to bring some extremely popular Bollywood, TV and other celebrities to the new series and we have a fabulous\ response," Myleeta Aga, general manager and creative head of BBC Worldwide Productions India, said.
Footballer Baichung Bhutia won the last season of 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'.
