IndiaNewsNetwork.IN Bureau | 19th Sept 2015: As widely reported by the media in India, firebrand model Arshi Khan has been approached by the channel Colors – the makers of Bigg Boss to participate in the very popular reality show Bigg Boss season 9. Arshi Khan who has done a few south movies including the recently shot Telugu film Love Success starring Chandrababu, is known for two main reasons: one for taking on Radhe Maa and her associates and two for her dare bare statements, including the by now widely reported “Yes I slept with Afridi, so what”.
A reliable source at Endemol tells us that when Salman Khan came to know about this reported “long-distance love affair” he decided to have a chat with the makers of the show and add his expert advice. It is a well-known fact that at least 2-3 participants in each season of Bigg Boss are recommended or suggested or ‘inserted’ by Salman Khan. This year, Salman Khan decided to play Cupid and while Arshi Khan may be either a normal contestant or a wild card entry, Sallu bhai decided to give her a super surprise.
Our source tell us that Salman and Afridi are ‘good friends’ and Salman decided to talk to Afridi about making a guest appearance on the show. We are not sure if Afridi has said yes yet, given the border tensions and the upcoming cricket series, not to forget India’s love-hate relationship with Pakistani artistes and performers. However, it my be possible that Salman Khan may have prevailed upon Shahid Khan Afridi to ‘drop in’ on his show and give Arshi Khan the surprise of her life. It may also turn out that, Afridi may not be able to make it. Wait and watch and see what happens….
