Mumbai: If all goes well, in the upcoming season of Indian reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ we will be able to see boxer Mike Tyson as one of the contestants. For the fifth season of the show which will be hosted by Bollywood heavyweights Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, the producers plan to bring the real ‘heavyweight’ champ to India.
The boxer is expected to grab ample attention just like Pamela Anderson did in the last season. Tyson who is all kicked about participating in the reality show, is likely to be in India in and around October, when the shoot for ‘Bigg Boss 5’ is slated to begin.
A source from the unit said, “Tyson is an international celebrity, who will attract lot of male audience and kids to see the show. The channel is currently trying to work out the modalities.”
Tyson is known as the bad boy of the boxing world. Convicted of raping a woman, Tyson has spent 3 years in prison. But despite controversies, he enjoys a massive fan following.
‘Bigg Boss 5’ is infamous for choosing controversial contestants in its show. Earlier they managed to rope in Rahul Mahajan and Veena Malik and for the current season they have set their eyes on Maria Susairaj and Poonam Pandey.
But Mike Tyson would be the real trump card in the lot.
