After hosting Bigg Boss 2 and judging the reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Shilpa Shetty Kundra takes on another reality show — IPL Rockstars — as celebrity judge. The actress is being paid a whopper for it.
Says Shilpa, "I can only say that I am judging a reality show (and no more) at this point."
The weekend show began last week on Colors and the actress joins as celebrity judge this week. She will judge the contestants for their stage presence and ability to shine as a true rockstar.
Says a source, "IPL Rockstar required a star connected to the Indian Premier League and Shilpa signed on."
Sukhwinder Singh and Kailash Kher are the other two judges on IPL Rockstar with Hard Kaur as host. Its contestants include participants of music reality shows like Sandeep Acharya and Rahul Saxena (Indian Idol), Yashita Yashpal Sharma (Sa Re Ga Ma Pa) besides others.
The channel aims to blend the nation’s biggest passions — cricket along with music by having 12 talented singers competing to be the IPL Rockstar 2010.
