Now, The Great Khali in
Inmates in the
house will soon have a tall problem at their hands. On Saturday night, WWE champ Dalip Singh Rana, better known as The Great Khali, will enter the
show as the 12th inmate.
The channel confirmed that Khali is the wildcard entrant in the house. “He is known for his strength in the wrestling ring but, with this show, his fans will get to see a part of his life as they watch him eat, sleep, laugh and interact with the other contestants,” said Andrew Whitaker, Executive VP, WWE International.
A special bed has been arranged for the 7’3” tall wrestler, but no extra food arrangements have been made. Interestingly, the limited food supply in the house has already led to several arguments among the contestants, and it remains to be seen how they deal with the 190 kg, 38-year-old wrestler.
While sources from the channel maintain that he will have to fight for food like everyone else, actor Aryan Vaid, who participated in the show’s first season, says, “It takes a lot of food to maintain a body like that. I am sure they won’t starve him; they must’ve made adequate arrangements.”
This is not Khali’s first attempt at entertainment. The giant has worked in the upcoming film,
Rama- The Saviour
, as well as in some Hollywood films.
