Fans are super excited about Nach Baliye 8 that would soon be aired on Star Plus. The dance reality show has roped in some of the popular couples and the viewers just can’t wait to see them groove together. And now there is good news for all Karan Tacker fans. The handsome hunk has been finalized to host the show! Earlier it was rumoured that actress Bipasha Basu and her hubby Karan Singh Grover would be hosting the show but now a leading tabloid has confirmed that Karan Tacker would host the eighth season.

As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu refused to host Nach Baliye 8 due to creative differences. About hosting the dance reality show Karan Tacker told the tabloid, “This is the first time I will see it, that too live. The format is being altered slightly, it’ll be a little more straight-jacketed but fun.” Mr. Tacker has earlier hosted shows like Halla Bol and the The Voice. Karan was also part of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 7 and even emerged as the first runner up. Many expected that he and his rumoured girlfriend Krystle D’Souza would be participating in Nach Baliye 8. But he shared with Mirror that he’s single and hence cannot be part of the show.
