MUMBAI, Oct. 30 -- After giving the show a family-oriented twist this season, the makers of Bigg Boss are now gearing up to add one international name to the mix.
The channel, Colors, has approached seven global celebrities, one of whom will appear on the show for a few days.
An insider reveals, "There are seven celebrities who have been approached, including Paris Hilton and actor Julia Roberts. The other names are actor Jackie Chan, boxer Mike Tyson, television host Padma Lakshmi, retired Australian cricketer Shane Warne and his fiancee, actor Liz Hurley."
Apparently, some Pakistani celebrities were approached too. "But the channel wants to play it safe. Also, two other Indian personalities will also enter the house in early November. One of the international names will be finalised as per their availability and fee. The production house and channel hope to lock the name in two weeks and bring the celebrity to India by the end of November," says the insider.
In the previous two seasons, Baywatch actor Pamela Anderson, former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds and sumo wrestler Yamamotoyama have appeared on the show. They stayed in the house for three and seven days and one day respectively. Earlier, in season two, late Jade Goody - infamous for her racial slurs against Shilpa Shetty on the UK's Big Brother show - had stayed on.
