Actor Devoleena Bhattacharjee aka Gopi Bahu of TV series Saath Nibhaana Saathiya was recently in news for being approached for the upcoming season of the reality show Bigg Boss. Putting all discussions to rest, the actor has confirmed that she was offered the show, and adds that she has refused the offer. Devoleena, however, expressed her desire to work with Salman Khan, who is the host of Bigg Boss 11.
In a statement released by Devoleena, it’s mentioned: “I want to work with superstar Salman Khan (the host of Bigg Boss). But I can’t do Bigg Boss right now. I was approached for the show. I respect the channel and the production house for considering me. But I always wanted to do a dance-based reality show or, may be, try a show like Khatron Ke Khiladi.”
Debolina is currently holidaying with her mother, and her Instagram account is full of special moments between the mother and daughter. “I am in Udaipur and enjoying time with my mother. It’s her birth month. I’m only concerned about giving her all the happiness,” she was quoted.
