Earlier during the shooting of the show's Filmy Masala episode, where the contestants had to incorporate a genre based act into their performances, Shahid and Malaika were seen munching on a few snacks in between breaks together.
Shahid brought an entire box of snacks, which the two judges were found sharing with each other.
"Over the few weeks since Malaika has joined 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa', the two judges have become very close during shoots. They have shared munchies with each other on numerous occasions and both of them always get healthy snacks especially for the show," said a source from the show.
Malaika replaced filmmaker Karan Johar as a judge on the Colors show.
Apart from Shahid and Malaika, the show also features Ganesh Hegde and Lauren Gottlieb as judges.
