With her debut film set to release in a few days, Elli Avram shocks her director and producer with her being part of 'Bigg Boss'

Even before they settle down comfortably inside the Bigg Boss house, looks like some of this year’s inmates have already started shocking those around them.

The makers of an upcoming film were in for a huge surprise when just a few days away from releasing Mickey Virus, they realised their lead actress, Elli Avram was headed for Salman Khan’s reality show. Apparently the clause that makes the inmates swear to not reveal their Bigg Boss plans to the outside world is what forces Elli to keep mum till the last minute. The producers and the director of her film have a tough task now of promoting the film without her but are said to be happy for the actress.

A source close to the makers says, “They just got to know very late about Elli’s plans. However, they took a mutual decision to let her continue on the show. They think it is a big platform to promote the film.” Director Saurabh Varma says, “Elli is a through professional. She was not allowed to talk about it. But before entering the house, she did ask us and we mutually agreed to let her go in. It might work in the interest of the movie. We wish her the best.” Well they say, any publicity is good publicity.
