New Delhi: A day after celebrity couple dance reality show Nach Baliye 8 started airing on television, producer Ekta Kapoor took no time to decide on her favourite jodi. No brownie points for guessing Ekta's pick. The Yeh Hai Mohabbatein producer wants the stars of her show Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya and Vivek Dahiya to win Nach Baliye 8. Posting a picture of the couple, Ekta wrote, "Saw these two dance?!!! televisions most loved couple...they are LOVE itself!!! Waiting to see them win nachbaliye8 (sic)." Divyanka plays the lead opposite Karan Patel in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein while Vivek also features in a pivotal role. He was also the star of one of Ekta's top-rated show Kavach...Kaali Shaktiyon Se. Divyanka Tripathi, 32, and Vivek Dahiya, 32, married in July last year.
