Buzz is that former cricketer and commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu is being roped in to participate in Big Boss 5. Sidhu has been offered a whopping sum of Rs 5 crore.
“The makers have already approached Sidhu with an offer that he cannot refuse. The huge sum is for him to spend five weeks inside the Bigg Boss house with the other contestants. They are aware that his ‘Sidhuisms’ are a great hit with the viewers and are keen to rope him,” a source said, adding, “The channel has already started penciling in the contestants for the next outing. The show is slated to go on air around October,” added the source.
Sidhu was approached two years ago also but he withdrew at the last moment and designer Rohit Verma filled his spot.
