Star Plus, the leading Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC), is bringing back its popular celebrity couple dance reality show, Nach Baliye, in its sixth season.

Starting November 9, the celebrity dance reality show will be aired every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm. Produced by Frames Productions, the new season of Nach Baliye aims to give couples a chance to rekindle their romance and deepen their bond through dance.

Talking about how different this season will be from the earlier one, Gaurav Banerjee, executive vice-president, content strategy, STAR India, says, "It's a show that has always done very well and when you are coming up with a new season of a classic, the basic ingredient is not changed. This year we want to explore the passionate side of love. The chemistry between the couples and romance will set the stage on fire, making it a must watch! Each act is being conceived to show a vibrant and exciting expression of love. There is nothing subtle about this season."

The judges' panel includes actor Shilpa Shetty, choreographer Terrence Lewis and director Sajid Khan.

Hemant Ruprell, producer, Frames Productions, says, "We are extremely delighted to present another season of the most enjoyed celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye. Our endeavour is to sustain this legacy of success achieved so far and bring viewers much closer to their favourite stars. We are happy to partner with Star Plus in their vision for Nach Baliye and take it to the next level."

Ashish Golwalkar, senior vice-president, programming, STAR India, says, "The first week of the show, people come to watch the celebrities and the judges. Last year, we realised that it's not just about celebrities but the uniqueness and reason for them to participate in the show. There will be a lot of packaging change, the campaign line 'Hadd se badhega romance, hoga is baar aisa dance' but the basic essence and soul of the show will remain the same."

Nach Baliye 6 will run for 26 episodes and be hosted by Gautam Rode and Karan Wahi. It brings together 11 celebrity pairs that include Raju and Shikha Shrivastava, Raqesh Vashisht and Ridhi Dogra, Kanika Maheshwari Ghai and Ankur Ghai, Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee, Ripu Daman Handa and Shivangi Verma, Yash Sinha and Amrapali Gupta, Kiku and Priyanka Sharda, Bruna Abdalah and Omar Farooque, Sanjeev and Lataa Seth, Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi, and Vinod and Raksha Thankur.
