I Am Not Doing Bigg Boss - Sooraj Pancholi 814154

It’s okay to weave fantasy stories about public figures as long as they do not hurt anyone. But why make up damaging stories about those who are vulnerable ?

The talented Sooraj Pancholi, who after ten years of legal battle has been acquitted of all abetment-to-suicide charges in the Jiah Khan case, is now working on reconstructing his life and career.

In the midst of Sooraj’s war-like efforts to find and start the right film projects, there comes the report on a news portal that Sooraj is doing Bigg Boss on host Salman Khan’s recommendation.

Sooraj is aghast. “I don’t where that came from. I am certainly not doing Bigg Boss, even for the sake of Salman Sir whom I respect a lot. Reality shows, be it Bigg Boss or anything else, are not my cup of tea. It is not part of my nature to go on television and talk about myself. I am a very shy and private person. For the past ten years my life was discussed publicly for no fault of mine. At least now I can value my own privacy.”

Elaborating more on the damaging news report Sooraj says, “To publish such a report at this stage of my career is not cool. I am now meeting prominent film producers. Four or five projects are being discussed. At least one or two of them will be finalized very shortly. Then I will make my announcement. But Bigg Boss? Thanks, but no thanks.”
