Aam Admi Party leader and poet Kumar Vishwas will not be a part of the reality show Bigg Boss 8, after reports that the channel rejected his demand of Rs 21 crores, which he had claimed to donate for the war widow fund.
Kumar Vishwas had on Tuesday posted on his Facebook page that he had reservations about appearing on ‘Bigg Boss’.
“I am what I am, because of all you friends. What I speak, is an echo of what I hear from you. I had my reservations about Big Boss. Attached is the letter that I wrote to the producers of the show. I was not made for Big Boss. The biggest Boss is Almighty. If there is any other ‘boss’ for me, it is India. I chose to serve Big Boss’ home in order to serve those who are serving the motherland. Anyways, No worries and no hurries. I will keep serving the nation in my way. Jai Hind!,” he wrote in his Facebook post.
He also attached the letter, which is written in Hindi, for his followers on Facebook.
Other names doing the rounds in the list of ‘Bigg Boss 8’ contestants include Raj Babbar’s son Arya Babbar, Salman Khan’s former girlfriend and Romanian model Iulia Vantur, Alok Nath, Sunil Grover aka Gutthi, TV actors Gaurav Chopra, Mona Singh of Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin to name a few.
