Salman ropes in supermodel Asif Azim on ‘Bigg Boss 7’

With the ratio of male members getting a little skewed in the house of ‘Bigg Boss 7’, makers of the show have decided to balance the number of males and females by roping in a male supermodel Asif Azim.

In the first weekend itself, Hazel Keech was eliminated and only 14 contestants remain in the house. Each year ‘Bigg Boss’ throws surprise elements by sending in a couple of new contestants in the house. They are known to make an entry through wild card. They are sent in between the entire span of the show. This year the surprise package is a Bangladeshi origin super model Asif Azim.

29 years old model Asif is a known face in the fashion world. He has participated in a number of domestic and international fashion shows. Asif said, “ ‘Bigg Boss’ is my attempt to connect with masses because it is one of the highly watched reality shows on TV in India and across the world. People get to know you and it's a challenge for a contestant to be calm in some really difficult situations.”

Asif was born in Bangladesh. He started his modeling career in Bangladesh. While modeling on one of the shows, Asif was discovered by International model scouts. Gradually he was known in International fashion circuits. Recently, his name was shown in the top 5 fittest male supermodels in India. Asif has walked the ramp for famous designers like Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra and Rohit Bal.

As the house of ‘Bigg Boss’ is divided into hell and heaven, Asif is seemingly unperturbed as to which side he gets. He said, “I am not at all bothered by the comforts or discomforts in the house. Being born in a middle class family and now leading a lavish life, I have seen both the best and worst parts of a life. When I was in Bangladesh, I had lived my life like the hell segment of the house.”

Asif has been religiously following the show. He said, “Bigg Boss is the biggest show on Indian television and I am really excited to be a part of it. I have been watching the episodes for the past week. The contestants this season have varied personalities and I am sure that I will befriend most of them. I believe that ‘Your work should speak for yourself’ and I am certain that my good deeds inside the house will earn me enough votes from audiences to make me a winner!”
