Putting all rumours and news stories to rest, Nakshatra Bagwe has finally confirmed that he will not be participating in Big Boss Season 9. The film-maker turned actor put up a post on his Facebook page yesterday clarifying that he will not be taking part in the reality show, but has hinted that he may appear on Television soon.
On his page, he wrote: “Finally, I would like to state that I am NOT going to be a part of Bigg Boss 9. I know many were excited to see me on small screen advocating gay rights and I promise that you will see me on TV soon, doing the same. I am currently occupied with several exciting projects and I shall announce them soon. Thank you for your love and support.”
Gaylaxy, and many other publications, had previously reported that Nakshatra was among one of the confirmed participants for Season 9 of Big Boss. Talks between the actor and the producers of the show were going on, but couldn’t materialise finally. Big Boss has had one LGBT participant usually, and with Nakshatra now out of the list, it remains to be seen who will be the LGBT face this time in the show.
