Actress turns down offer for Bigg Boss 15

SpotboyE reported that a source revealed to them, "Mallika was approached to participate in the show for six long weeks and was supposed to stay like a contestant but with special powers. As she will be on a secret task assigned by Bigg Boss. Though the actress was keen on doing the show she didn't want to be a contestant on the show. And hence she turned down the offer again."

Last season, the actress was reportedly supposed to make an entry as the 'Malkin' (landlord) of the Bigg Boss house, however, the opportunity finally landed up in actress Ameesha Patel's kitty as Mallika Sherawat had apparently demanded a whopping amount for her appearance in the show.

Meanwhile, this time Bigg Boss 15 will air on digital space for six weeks before it goes on air on national TV and Bollywood director-producer Karan Johar will be hosting the show on OTT space.

Soon after the announcement, Karan Johar issued a statement saying, "My mom and I are huge 'Bigg Boss' fans and wouldn't miss it for a day. As a viewer, it keeps me hugely entertained with dollops of drama. For decades now, I have always enjoyed hosting shows and now with 'Bigg Boss OTT'... it will surely be over-the-top."

Wait for it!"
