Navjot Singh Sidhu

You will be deprived of many jokes that would’ve come your way, had former cricketer and commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu lived up to his promise of participating in the reality show Bigg Boss. Sidhu was all set to be a prisoner and had committed to the channel as well as accepted the first installment of his payment, but right on the day the participants enter the House, Sidhu backed out.

Our source revealed, “The channel wanted a good mix of people in the House and there was buzz about Manoj Prabhakar and Ajay Jadeja participating, but it was finally Sidhu who was zeroed in on. Sidhu was explained the concept of the show and what it would take to participate a month ago. Sidhu was keen to contest and hence, after further discussions, the deal was finalised. Only the contract remained to be signed, as all participants do it just before they actually enter the House.”

“Unaware of any change in plans from Sidhu’s side, the channel sent a chartered plane to the Chandigarh airport to fly Sidhu to Mumbai. But Sidhu refused to come to the airport and told the channel that he didn’t want to be a part of Bigg Boss anymore,” the source added.

Refusing to comment on the story, the spokesperson of the channel said, “No comments.”

The channel is now looking for a replacement, but it will not be a cricketer.

We gave you a low-down on the to-be members of the House yesterday, (The Bigg Boss Team), and here are three more who you will see fighting it out to win. Music director Ismail Darbar, comedian Raju Shrivastav and actor Puneet Issar are the other participants.
