Nach Baliye Shriman v/s Shrimati is an extension of the‘Nach Baliye’ series, and ran in April 2012. In Shriman vs Shrimati, the jodis (celebrity couples) will not dance together – but instead will be competing against each other. The essence of Nach Baliye is as much about dance as it is to showcase the chemistry, the comfortable bond and the understanding between the couple on stage. Nach Baliye Shriman v/s Shrimati will be taking ahead this thought to put together an opposite but yet an exciting display of the true strength of a couple.
