Bigg Boss offered Navjot Singh Sidhu Rs 5 crore

Like the earlier season, the fifth season of Bigg Boss is also going to be spicier and controversial.  Bigg Boss has roped in ex cricketer and commentator Navjot Singh Sindhu with a whopping amount of Rs 5 crore.

"The makers have already approached Sidhu with an offer that he cannot refuse. The huge sum is for him to spend five weeks inside the Bigg Boss house with the other contestants. They are aware that his 'Sidhuisms' are a great hit with the viewers and are keen to rope him," a source told Mid Day.

"The channel has already started penciling in the contestants for the next outing. The show is slated to go on air around October," added the source.

This is not the first time that Sidhu was approached by the makers. Two years back also he was asked to participate on the show but his last minute rejection made way for designer Rohit Verma.
