Indian television actor Devoleena Bhattacharjee was forced to quit the last edition of the controversial reality show Bigg Boss. Known for playing an ideal daughter-in-law in the TV soap Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, she had to leave the show as she had suffered a serious back injury. To fill the vacant space in the show, the makers had roped in producer Vikas Gupta who had quit Bigg Boss 12 due to ill health.
As for the ongoing season, if reports from close sources are to be believed, Devoleena is set to enter the house as Vikas’ proxy. Vikas was a part of the challengers team in the current season but had to leave the house owing to ill health. According to Times Of India, Devoleena is under quarantine and once the period is over, she is likely to enter the main house.
A source was quoted as saying: “We approached Devoleena after Vikas’ exit and she was happy to come on board. As of now, the plan is to divide her quarantine time between the hotel and the secret room. A few days later, she will be moved to the secret room inside the house, where she will be able to watch all the other participants and understand their game from close quarters before making an entry herself. She could enter the secret room on Monday. Everything was finalised in a jiffy and we are looking forward to her stint on the show.”
Devoleena has always been very vocal about those who have targeted Vikas in the house and had called them as insensitive. She has always opined Rakhi Sawant as the real entertainment of the house.
