Model Poonam Pandey, who rose to fame after she said she’d strip for the Indian cricket team if they won the World Cup (but didn’t live up to her word), says she is shocked by reports that the makers of Bigg Boss 5 plan to pay her Rs. 2 crore to strip on the reality TV show. “I am really shocked; this is very less … they have not asked me yet though I’ve heard they want to. I don’t have a specific amount in mind, but Rs. 2 crore is too less.”

But, doesn’t she have apprehensions about stripping on national television? “Well, no, not really. That is not a problem at all. I am a bold person,” says the 20-year-old. Pandey also says that she is currently concentrating on Bollywood. “I have signed a film with the number one production house as the lead. I cannot reveal more about it right now.”
