Actress Rhea Chakraborty was rumoured to join Salman Khan’s upcoming popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss 15’, which will have its grand premier this weekend. The buzz around her appearance on the reality show gained momentum after Rhea was spotted at the same studio as BB15’s confirmed contestant Tejasswi Prakash and Bigg Boss 13’s Dalljiet Kaur. It had also been reported that Rhea was offered a whopping amount of Rs 35 lakh per week for her stay. However, amidst these reports, there had been no confirmation regarding this.
Now, as per the latest report in Bollywoodlife.com, Rhea Chakraborty's legal issues are spoiling and dampening her chances of appearing on the reality show. For the uninitiated, the actress was arrested by NCB as part of a probe into supply of drugs to her boyfriend, the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
The report also stated that the makers of Bigg Boss 15 were keen to approach Rhea, who is now managed by Salman Khan's talent agency and thus, is quite close to some members of his family. But it looks like that due to the pending legal issues, Rhea might not be seen in the show - as the NCB is still investigating the matter.
Coming back to Bigg Boss 15, the new season will be based on the 'Sankat In Jungle' theme and will see the contestants having quite a tough time to survive against all odds in the jungle.
The contestants who will be locked inside the house this season are - Tejasswi Prakash, Karan Kundrra, Simba Nagpal, singer Akasa Singh, singer Afsana Khan, Umar Riaz and Donal Bisht. Three contestants from ‘Bigg Boss OTT’ - Shamita Shetty, Nishant Bhatt and Pratik Sehajpal - will also be a part of Bigg Boss 15.
A few surprise entries will be announced by host Salman Khan on the premiere night. ALSO READ: Also Read: Bigg Boss 15: Confirmed Contestant Afsana Khan Will Not Enter The Reality Show, Leaves The City After Panic Attacks- EXCLUSIVE
