On asked about the surprising pairing of Rakhi-Abhishek even after they have split, our source informs us, "The channel wants to rope them in as Jodi for the show, and it looks like both are considering taking part in it".
We talked to Sachin, who categorically said, "I was approached, but my commitments do not give me any time for the show".
When asked Kiran Sutwane, winner of Aajaa Mahi Vay, the girl said, "We have been approached for the show. But I am doing Zee's Dance India Dance too. So I don't think I can do this show".
Mini Mathur says, "I would love to put on my dancing shoes again. But I don't know whether it will work out. Let's see".
According to our source, "Farah Khan has been approached as judge in the second season too. But nothing is finalized yet". Last year saw Farah Khan, Vishal and Shekar as judges to select the Superstar..
We tried calling Deepak Dhar, MD, Endemol, but he was unavailable for comments.
Well, let's wait and watch to see who goes out and who comes in, when it comes to the final list!!
