PeepingMoon, in an exclusive piece dated September 6, informed its readers that Malaika Arora has tested positive for Coronavirus. The Bollywood actress who is currently seen as the judge of Sony TV's India's Best Dancer with Geeta Kapur and Terence Lewis is home-quarantined. Now, in the latest development, Nora Fatehi has been roped in as the 'Special Guest Judge' to fill Malaika's shoes until she recovers. The actress, model and dancer par excellence had come on India's Best Dancer a few weeks ago but as a special guest.
Confirming the development, the producer of India's Best Dancer told a leading daily that Nora will begin shooting on Thursday or Friday. "Earlier, we felt that there was not much time left to rope in another special judge on such short notice. But, thankfully, Nora who had come as a special guest for an earlier episode, will step in again this week as a special judge. I am thankful that she has agreed. Malaika will come back on the show after she recovers from COVID-19," he told.
