Television heartthrob, Karan Tacker has been confirmed as host of Star Plus’ upcoming show ‘Nach Baliye 8’.
For a number of weeks, it was reported that Karan Singh Grover was to host the series but the deal, which was signed over the weekend, will actually see Tacker front the popular show, according to Mumbai Mirror.
Tacker, who previously hosted ‘The Voice India’ on &TV, told the publication, “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.”
He added, “You can jump from one show to another once the season ends. Whereas in a series you’ve to stick to the same character graph for a couple of years. I’ve hosted The Voice before and had participated in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. I was terrified of dancing and was pathetic at it. My schooling happened on the show and I went on to be one of the runners up. Now I love dancing, and I’m sure I’ll have a couple of performances on Nach Baliye too.”
