He came in with a bang, but may soon leave with a whimper. And, it may all have been pre-planned! The Great Khali, who entered the reality TV show, Bigg Boss 4, last week, will leave the show soon, suggest sources, who say the wrestler’s exit was scripted from the day he entered the house.
“He signed an agreement with the channel to be on the show for 10-12 days. After that, he’ll exit the show so he can fulfil his other commitments in India,” says a source close to the wrestler. Besides the show, he is also here to promote his upcoming film, Rama The Saviour. “As per his itinerary, he is supposed to be in Delhi on November 1 to promote the film,” adds the source on condition of anonymity.
The film’s director, Hadi Ali Abrar, is optimistic that Khali will be part of the film’s promotion. “Khali is an integral part of the film, and will surely be promoting the film across India. The film’s promotions start from November 1,” he said. Khali is reportedly charging R20 lakh per day to promote the film. That is four times the amount he is charging per day in the Bigg Boss house.
When contacted, the spokesperson of the host channel, Colors, said, “The news about Khali leaving the house is not true.”
Former contestants, however, support the theory that the show may be rigged. “We all knew that Khali was going only for a few days. I was part of the first season, so we didn’t know what was going to happen. Now, things have changed because the channel knows what to show. The contestants who add spice are kept on the show while others are evicted,” says Bobby Darling. “They will do anything to gain attention, which isn’t a bad thing,” says season two participant, Sambhavna Seth.
