The list of Bigg Boss 9 probables that was circulated some days ago is self-destructing with alarming speed. Controversial godwoman Radhe Maa is the latest to publicly deny she’s appearing on the next season of the reality show.
An image of a notice from her lawyer cautioning the public to ignore the reports in which the ‘unscrupulous and atheists have falsely alleged’ that the self-styled godwoman will be on Bigg Boss.
Radhe Maa has barely been out of the headlines ever since a picture of her in a red miniskirt surfaced on social media. Since then, she’s been implicated in a dowry harassment case, accused of driving a family of farmers to suicide and is now named in a First Information Report or FIR in which former devotee and Bigg Boss alumnus Dolly Bindra accuses her of “intimidation, sexual harassment and voyeurism”.
Just like Radhe Maa, several others named in news reports as Bigg Boss hopefuls have used their social media accounts to deny they are participating in the show.
Makdee actress Shweta Basu Prasad, who was arrested for prostitution last year, said in a Facebook post: “No not participating in Bigg Boss. Please don’t believe the pseudo news that’s doing the rounds.”
Producer Uday Chopra and model-actress Mandana Karimi tweeted rumour busters: Comedian Gaurav Gera told in an interview, “Yes, I was approached for the show, but I am not going for it. I am a fan of the show, but I love to only watch it.”
However, the fast diminishing list of possible participants is balanced by the presence of Salman Khan who returns to host and has promised ‘double trouble’ in the show’s first promo.
He might, however, be preaching to an empty house at the rate the rumoured participants are dropping out.
