Gautam can go easy with those calisthenics…American Reality TV star Kim Kardashian may not, after all, be heading to the Bigg Boss 8 house.
Kardashian, 34, was set to make an appearance in the house during her first ever visit to India later this month but the much-anticipated tour has been scuppered over what one newspaper described was a “visa issue”.
Kardashian has been on a global tour promoting her new fragrance, ‘Fleur Fatale’, in recent weeks and India was one of the stops on her jaunt.
The Hindustan Times quoted a “source” as saying: “The reason is not clear but all we know is that there was some visa issue which she could not fulfill and the trip has been cancelled”.
One diplomatic source told the UKAsian that Kardashian may have been denied a visa over concerns about her “risque reputation” which some see as “harmful” to Indian culture.
Last week, the…erm…generously proportioned star attempted to “break the internet” by baring her famous derrier on the cover of a New York magazine.
The World Wide Web – thankfully – survived that attempt on its life but the image caused numerous Social Media storms around the world.
Prior to winning global fame with her reality show ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ and her high-profile marriage to rapper Kanye West, Kardashian had entered the spotlight after the “accidental” leaking of a sex tape featuring her and former boyfriend Raj J.
Producers of the Colors TV show had been hoping Kardashian will infuse some much-needed excitement into the Bigg Boss house which has lacked some sparkle this season: there’s been a distinct lack of romance and confrontations which have made previous editions that much more ‘compelling’.
Salman Khan may now breathe easy.
