Ekta Kapoor has denied rumours that there are plans of replacing Preity as a judge of the Star Plus show.
“Preity has been our choice for the show right from the start and news about her leaving the show is absolutely rubbish. These are complete rumours and have no truth.
“We have a judging panel with varied views, but that’s exactly what brings different lens towards a relationship. Preity had informed us about her absence during one episode of the shoot on account of her grandmother’s surgery well in advance so that we could plan the shoot with Remo (D’Souza),” Kapoor said in a statement.
Slamming the “Soldier” actress’ erratic behaviour, Kapoor said: “It’s completely untrue and anyone in the ‘Nach Baliye’ family will vouch for the same. Our judges panel is very much on board till the finale and there is no trouble in this paradise.”
Featuring celebrity contestants in a slightly changed format, the reality show also has author Chetan Bhagat and choreographer Marzi Pestonji as judges.
