Allegedly Vishwas was even offered Rs 5 crore for the show, which is likely to be aired in the month of September. On asking Vishwas he did confirm that he was approached by the makers of Big Boss but he refused to divulge in any more details.
This is however not the first time that a politician has been on the show. Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam too was a part of the show in 2008 but was eliminated after a short stint.
If Vishwas has agreed to do the show, there are good chances that the public may get to see his poetic side. Vishwas is a poet who has done many stage shows and has also penned down some songs for the Hindi film industry.
Vishwas contested the Lok Sabha elections this year from Amethi against BJP's Smriti Irani and Congress' Rahul Gandhi. Though he claimed that he would defeat Rahul Gandhi with a huge vote margin, it was Vishwas who got a taste of his own medicine.
Vishwas has earlier been into many controversies one involving a jibe that he made at nurses from Kerala.
