Nakshatra Bagwe to participate as LGBT contestant in the show?facebook

Controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss' has featured some popular LGBT contestants until now. The reality show has featured at least one LGBT contestant every year and this year too will be no different.

And keeping up with the tradition, the makers have approached award winning filmmaker Nakshatra Bagwe for 'Bigg Boss 9'.

"Nakshatra Bagwe has been approached for "Bigg Boss 9" by the makers, but nothing has been finalised yet," a source told  IBTimes India.

Bagwe is an LGBT rights activist and has organised Gujarat's first ever pride march. 

He has won KASHISH, Mumbai International Queer Film Festival award, in 2012 for his film Logging Out, which was later screened at Queens Museum of Arts in New York and The Old Cinema in London.

He will soon be making his Indian feature film debut with "My Son is Gay" movie and international film debut with "Hearts".

If Bagwe signs the dotted line then he will be the eighth LBGT contestant of the reality show. Earlier, Bobby Darling, Rohit Verma, Ali Saleem, Laxmi Tripathi, Imam Siddiqui, VJ Andy and Sushant Divgikar participated in the show.
