According to our source, "The production house tried all ways possible to get Madhuri in. But it could not happen, and it was then that they approached Rani Mukherjee as judge. Rani has a bigger reason to be part of the show, as her latest film on which she had high hopes, Dil Bole Hadippa fared miserably at the box office. Rani now feels that DPL is the best way to stay in the limelight".
Mohammad Morani of Cineyug told us, "Madhuri is not doing the show. Rani is almost finalized, and her chance of making it as judge is 80:20".
We tried calling Danish Khan, Marketing Head, Sony but he remained unavailable.
DPL goes on air on October 9th, and will air every Friday and Saturday at the 8 PM slot.
