Nach Baliye 8 is currently airing on Star Plus. And the names which comprise the judges’ panel this year are Mohit Suri, Terence Lewis, and Sonakshi Sinha. However, as per the crawling media reports, Sonakshi has taken a break and Malaika Arora Khan will¬†replace her on the show.

Speculations are rife that Sona is currently busy with her prior work commitments and is also travelling a lot. Due to this, the Noor actress is not being able to shoot a few episodes of the celebrity dance reality TV show. For Malaika, this seems like life has come to a full circle as she started her judging stint on TV with Nach Baliye in 2005-2006.

While there’s no official confirmation, Sonakshi’s busy schedule with Salman Khan’s Da-Bangg Tour and her association with the upcoming Justin Bieber live concert are the said reasons.
