Ex-lovers Gaurav, Narayani to take part on ‘Bigg Boss 8’

The eight season of the popular reality show, ‘Bigg Boss’ is about to roll and the names of probable contestants are doing the rounds. It is heard that telly actors Gaurav Chopra and Narayani Shastri have been approached by Colors. The interesting fact about the duo is that Gaurav and Narayani are ex-couple.

Though separated they are in talking terms. Says a source, "It would be interesting to see the two locked up inside the same house. While Gaurav is keen on participating, he fears that Narayani would decline the project if he is going inside the house."

This is not the first time any exes are approached for the show. In the earlier season, Delnaaz Irani-Rajev Paul and Karishma Kotak-Niketan Madhok also took part.

Gaurav and Narayani recently spotted at a suburban mall and upon realising lot of prying eyes, they looked a bit uncomfortable. Gaurav is seen playing Raghuvendra Pratap Rathore in ‘Uttaran’.

Says a source, "Onlookers were surprised to see them. Even though Narayani chopped her long tresses last year, she was recognised."

When asked about Narayani, Gaurav says, "Please don't disrespect the friendship I have with her. I will not comment further."

After separation, Gaurav was linked with TV actress Mouni Roy but he separated with Mouni last year.
