Mumbai: Famous smuggler and serial killer, Charles Shobraj’s wife Nihita Biswas is reportedly going to be an inmate on ‘Big Boss 5’. Nihita Biswas came into limelight last year when she married Shobraj, who is serving life imprisonment in Nepal.

A daily has claimed that Nihita has already confirmed her presence on the show which is known for its controversial content. Nihita will be arriving in India by the end of September to shoot for the show.

Speaking to the daily, a source said, “The show depicts the lives of a handful of celebrities put together under one roof. Their stay at the house is captured on camera. Nihita, who is the wife of one of the most dreaded serial killers in the world will obviously add to the show’s attraction. The channel got in touch with her last week and she has signed on for the show.”

`Big Boss` has in the past had controversial inmates. In one of the seasons, Monica Bedi who was the girlfriend of dreaded gangster Abu Salem was also a part of show. In fact, Monica had also claimed on the show that this was her process of leaving the past behind and moving on. Monica also got a lot of film offers post her stint inside the house.

Likewise, Nihita will perhaps grab equal amount of eye balls while she is part of the show. Her marriage to a much older Shobraj last year had garnered lot of media attention.

A source revealed, “Charles was arrested in Nepal and was serving a sentence for killing a Canadian tourist in Kathmandu in 1975. Nihita had come to meet him and his interpreter. Charles and Nihita fell in love. He married her in October 2008 on the occasion of Bada Dashami in jail. The following day, Nepalese jail authorities dismissed all claims of their marriage. However, both Charles and Nihita claimed that they are married.”

Meanwhile Ashvini Yardi, the programming head of the channel refused to confirm Nihita’s presence in the show and said, “We’re in the process of finalising contestants. And do not comment on speculations.”
