Charles Shobraj's wife Nihita on 'Bigg Boss 5'

Well known serial killer and smuggler Charles Shobraj’s wife Nihita Biswas will be a part of ‘Bigg Boss 5’. Nihita came into limelight when she married Shobraj in a jail in Nepal. Charles Shobraj is serving life imprisonment in Nepal.


Nihita has confirmed her presence on the show and she will be arriving in India by the end of September to shoot for the show.

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` is famous for participation of controversial inmates. In one of the seasons, Monica Bedi wife of dreaded gangster Abu Salem was also a part of the show.

Nihita’s presence on the show will surely raise the TRPs of the show. 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.”
