From the cricket pitch, Brett Lee is apparently set to catapult himself into the Bigg Boss house. Insiders say Lee is currently in talks with the makers of the show to be a part of its seventh season.
Last year too there was buzz about the Aussie joining the rest of the contestants on the show but things didn’t work out.
A source says, “This year they have approached him again and are currently deciding on his fees. If things fall into place then he will arrive in India soon and will join the other 13 celebrities. The cricketer has expressed his interest and is likely to take up the offer.”
Insiders say last year, he had been offered a Rs 25 lakh per episode deal and this time the amount is expected to be bigger than this.
In the fifth season of the show, Australian batsman Andrew Symonds entered the house as a wild card entrant and was paid a whopping amount.
The spokesperson of the channel remained unavailable for comment.
