The show goes on air from December 13 on Sony Entertainment Television. It’s heard that the channel was trying to woo Madhuri to join the show for the last two years. Madhuri says, “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.”
