The television show ‘Bigg Boss’ hosted by Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, seems to be taking the show to a whole new level. After roping in 2 of the biggest Bollywood stars as the hosts, now they are planning on roping in even bigger names as contestants.

It’s already known that they have approached the likes of Mike Tyson, Lady Gaga, Barbara Mori and Ekta Kapoor to be part of the show.

But now Endemol and Colors have approached none other than Madhuri Dixit to be a contestant in the show as she announced that she is moving back to India.

“Madhuri will be paid equivalent to international boxer Mike Tyson while actor Barbara Mori's remuneration is still being worked out," a source told Daily Bhaskar.

Mike Tyson has apparently already given a nod to the show. Ekta Kapoor will also be a part of the show even though it will be just a cameo to promote her movie ‘The Dirty Picture’. Charles Shobhraj's wife Nihita Biswas, 22, has also confirmed her presence on Colors' controversial reality show.

Barbara Mori who was approached for the previous season itself has been approached again. The last time the deal fell through as Barbara quoted a very high price. This time though the actress was open for negotiations.

When asked about the contestants Ashvini Yardi, head of programming, Colors, says, “As a company policy, we don’t comment on the speculations around the contestants or the contents of the Bigg Boss house before the show goes on air. We’d like the audience to wait and watch out because we’ll bring an exciting season this time too.”
