The channel has decided to keep the identity of the 12th contestant as a surprise, that will be unveiled when the show goes on air next week, Sony officials said at a press conference in Mumbai on Tuesday night. "They were persuading me for two years. Finally, they took me to Los Angeles to see the American format of the 'Dancing with Stars' show," Madhuri said.
"The show was impressive and that is when the Sony officials said they were planning to replicate the same in India. That is when I decided that it was the right time to come in. Besides, dance is close to my heart," she added.
Madhuri said her preparations as a judge included understanding the different dance formats and styles. "I would be judging the personality of the contestants, their comfort level and their expressions and what they bring on stage," she added.
Madhuri said she was in India just for the show and has no plans to do movies. "But you never know what future has in store for me," she added.
