Actor and now producer Uday Chopra is not only not going to be on Bigg Boss, he's also indicated what manner of reality show he'd like to be on given a chance:
Just to clarify. I'm not going on big boss. It's a great show but I'm not the right person for this. Hell, no PS4, ill die!— Uday Chopra (@udaychopra) September 3, 2015
If there was a reality show I'd love to be a part of...it would be survivor! I think that's hardcore and totally up my alley.— Uday Chopra (@udaychopra) September 3, 2015
Comedian Gaurav Gera, who you've probably seen in digital gags on YouTube and Instagram, told news agency IANS that he was asked to be on the show but refused. "Yes, I was approached for the show, but I am not going for it. I am a fan of the show, butI love to only watch it," Gaurav said.
Iranian model-actress Mandana Karimi has been named as the 'first confirmed Bigg Boss contestant' by ABP News, but she said not in a tweet two days ago:
At this rate, it appears there might be nobody at all on Bigg Boss 9. The only person we know for sure will be on the show is actor Salman Khan, returning as host. (Also Read: Salman Khan Will Reportedly Return to Host Bigg Boss 9)
