According to Mid Day, the star has agreed to appear on the Indian version of Dancing With The Stars, retitled Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
The actress revealed: "Since dance is my passion and this show is associated with that, I thought of taking it up. It took me some time to say yes."
The 43-year old actress, who earned a reputation as one of the most prolific dancers in the film industry, has been largely absent from the screen in recent years.
Dixit was last seen in the Yash Raj Films production Aaja Nachle, which under-performed at the box office.
This season of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa will air from December 13.
