If sources are to believed, Sangeeta Bijlani has been approached to be a part of Bigg Boss. Interestingly, she is the former girlfriend of Salman Khan, who will host the show.
A source says, “This year, the show is expected to go on air in October instead of September. Accordingly, the show’s production team has just started approaching celebrities for the show. The three people who have been approached are Sangeeta Bijlani, Inder Kumar and Amy Jackson. But they are yet to get back to the team with their answer.”
Although Salman has denied having a say in choosing contestants for the show, it just so happens that every year, people close to him have made it to the Bigg Boss house. Looks like this year will not be an exception either. Sangeeta is believed to share a good rapport with the actor and his family and she is often spotted at their family gatherings. Inder too is friend of Salman and has acted with him in Wanted.
Another source says, “So far, only Karishma Tanna has given her nod to the show and talks are on with other celebrities.”
Inder, however, says that he has not been offered the show so far. When contacted, Deepak Dhar, MD, Endemol India, replied, “I cannot comment on any speculative story at this point of time.” The channel’s spokesperson remained unavailable for comment.
