Sushant Divgikar, who recently represented India in the Mr Gay World contest, will apparently be a part of the upcoming season of 'Bigg Boss'. A source close to the show says, “This year, the show’s production team wanted to bring in some surprise elements as far as the contestants are concerned.

Accordingly, they have made some changes in the format. The team has been in talks with some members of the LGBT community for quite some time and now it looks like Sushant will be one of the contestants on the show. The team thinks that he is a known face in the industry and will fit right in.”
This apart, buzz also has it that Sonali Raut, who made her debut in 'Xpose'; actors Upen Patel and Arya Babbar; and television actor Gautam Gulati will be a part of the show.
When contacted, Sushant, who was part of Big Switch’s third season, denied the story. “I just returned to India five days ago and I am suddenly getting calls asking me if I am going to feature in Bigg Boss. I just made my country proud but barring a few people, no one else is making note of this achievement,” he said. Deepak Dhar, MD of Endemol India, refused to comment.
