Reality TV Show "Bigg Boss 8" has already created a lot of controversy. The show's fans were left disappointed when Salman Khan called hosting it a 'hassle' and said he was still 'unsure' about the return.

The latest development, according to reports, is Khan's ex-flame Sangeeta Bijlani has been approached to be a part of the show.

"This year, the show is expected to go on air in October instead of September. Accordingly, the show's production team has just started approaching celebrities for the show. The three people who have been approached are Sangeeta Bijlani, Inder Kumar and Amy Jackson. But they are yet to get back to the team with their answer," Mid-Day quoted a source.

The "Kick" star drew a lot of flak last year owing to his biased opinions about certain inmates. There were even some reports that people close to the superstar eventually make it to the "Big Boss" house. And if Bijlani is finalized for the show, it might just strengthen the claims.

Bijlani is often spotted with Khan's family and apparently shares a healthy equation with him. Kumar too has been the super star's close friend and has worked together in "Tumko Na Bhool Payenge" and "Wanted."

Kumar, however, has denied reports of him being approached for the show. The actor, interestingly, has had a controversial past, who was reportedly accused of raping and molesting a 23-year-old model.

Amid all the speculation, a source close to the production confirmed that only TV actress-model Karishma Tanna has been finalized as one of the contestants on the show so far.

With less than a month left for the show to go on air, speculations such as these will for sure build excitement.
