Latest rumours were hinting that Bollywood comedic actor Rajpal Yadav could be a housemate in Bigg Boss 13.
Speaking about this remark, a source told an Indian tabloid:
“Given that the format of the show involves having at least one controversial celebrity in the glass-walled house, makers deemed Rajpal to be a great fit.
The actor-comedian is known for being controversial and has recently served a jail term as well which makes him an interesting personality for the viewers.
To top it all, his one-liners can add the right amount of entertainment value to the show.”
However, he has denied being part of the show. In a report published on ETimes, the actor comments:
“Like every year, this year too I have been offered the show, but due to prior film commitments, I won’t be able to do the show.
I love watching the show and the format is also quite entertaining. But I am not doing this season.
My best wishes to the people who will be a part of it.”
Yadav was in news for serving a jail term of three months for failing to repay the loan of Rs 5 crore that he had taken for his film Ata Pata Laapata in 2010.
Earlier, actresses Rashami Desai and Sandhya Mridul also negated being a part of the series.
Though popular rumoured celebs who are thought to be a part of the show are Karan Patel, Dayanand Shetty, Karan Vohra, Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Manikarnika actor Ankita Lokhande.
Yadav was last seen in Total Dhamaal which released in February this year.
