It seems that Star Plus is not having a very good time with it's reality band of late. After a not so successful Nach Baliye 4 and the premature ending of Arre Deewano Mujhe Pehchano comes the news that Jo Jeeta Wohi Dancing Star which was scheduled to air very soon, has now been pushed back to June.

Dancing Star postponed till June?
The latter show which includes winners and contestants of earlier reality competitions is a continuation of last year's Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star, which will pit the Champions V/s Challengers. But this time, the only difference is that the singers will be  replaced by dancers. Some of the names being discussed are Rajeshwari-Varun Badola of Nach Baliye1, Aamir-Sanjida( winner Nach Baliye 3), and many more. The latter duo who had also partially anchored Nach 4 confirmed that they had heard that the show had indeed been pushed back. About their participation, Aamir says "I want to do realty show in 2009 and may be Dancing Star could be my choice".

Kashmira Shah and Krushna who won Kabhi Kabhi Pyaar Kabhi Kabhi Yaar who are approached for the show say the main reason for delay is the IPL. "During this time the whole country only wants to watch cricket", says Kash. But a source who did not want to be named added that besides IPL, one more reason could be that the channel could not find the correct combination of dancers. Our khabru questioned the choice of Shama SikanderVinod Kambli of Ek Khiladi EK Haseena.

Rakhi Sawant who won Yeh Hai Jalwa and finished runner up in Nach Baliye 3 has also been approached, but she is adamant on not dancing with ex beau Abhishek. "How can I dance with him? He is not my partner anymore. I have told the channel that, I will dance with my choreographer and we will rock the dance floor", says Rakhi. This assertion coming from the item girl queen is not working well with some of the other possible jodis. One of whom quipped    "Rakhi and Abhishek fights and patch-up are common. You never know, may be they will again come together for  Jo Jeeta".

Further, the possible choice of Karishma Tanna and Mouni Roy from Zaraa Nachke Dikha teaming up as Champions has not gone down well with team mate, Ashita Dhawan. "Its surprising that the channel did not choose me, for it was my contest with Bhaktiyaar which ensured our girls' side the win in this Star One show. Ironically Bhaktiyaar has made the cut along with Chaitanya Chaudhary for the same show.

As of now, the teasers of the show that was on air has also been withdrawn, and viewers will have to wait longer to see this battle between the Champion Dancers and Challengers..
