Pehredaar Piya Ki lead actress Tejasswi Prakash was reportedly approached by the makers of controversial reality show Bigg Boss for participation in the upcoming season. Speaking to India Forums, the 25-year-old actress said: “Yes I have been approached for the show, but I am not too sure about it.” Tejasswi returned to the small screen with Pehredaar Piya Ki(after Swaragini), which was taken off air prematurely due to its controversial content, where an 18-year-old woman (played by Tejasswi) marries a 10-year-old boy (Afaan Khan).
Sony TV, which aired the show, released a statement shortly after the show ended, in which they said the creative team is working on a new story with the same star cast. Tejasswi cited the new show as the reason why she may not be able to participate in Bigg Boss 11. “With a new show being reworked for Sony TV already, I don’t think I’ll be really available for the show,” she told India Forums.
Tejasswi’s probable entry in Bigg Boss generated quite a buzz on Twitter. Some users said that they want to see the Swaragini actress on the small screen again but not on Bigg Boss others don’t care which show she chooses for her comeback.
