Kim Kardashian confirms entry into Bigg Boss house in India

Business mogul and part-time nudist Kim Kardashian is bringing her all famous assets to India when she makes a guest appearance on the reality show Bigg Boss.

After attempting to break the Internet last week with a series of racy pictures that instantly became the stuff of meme legend, Mrs. Kardashian West is heading East to cash in on the glaring international spotlight as she promotes her latest fragrance Fleur Fatale.

The 34-year-old television personality is expected to enter the Bigg Boss house on November 22, although the duration of her stay has not been confirmed. She’ll join current house guests Upen Patel, Puneet Issar and Karishma Tanna among others before flying in to Dubai shortly after. It will mark her second appearance in the emirate after helping to launch Millions of Milkshakes at The Dubai Mall in 2011.

Now in its eighth season, Bigg Boss is currently being hosted by Bollywood heavyweight Salman Khan although rumours that the Dabangg star will be replaced by fellow actor Ranveer Singh for the next season of the show have been circulating of late. Kim’s appearance will mark the second time an American sex symbol makes her way into the house following former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson’s memorable stay in 2010.

Viewers should take note that the attention-seeking Kardashian is likely to keep things tame during her debut tour of India. As an undisputed master of public relations, she’ll likely play up her fondness for local traditional fashion and attempt to plug as many of her business ventures to the millions of fans expected to tune into the show.

Kardashian and her ‘klan’ - including sisters Khloe, Kourtney and ‘momager’ Kris Jenner- have made countless millions through their hit reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians as well as fashion lines, phone apps and other product endorsements. The self-proclaimed ‘Selfie Queen’ is even releasing a book - appropriately titled Selfish - of her favourite snaps. With 25 million Twitter followers she continues to generate extraordinary public interest even in the face of controversy, including a 72-day union to basketball star Kris Humphries. Her marriage to rapper Kanye West was seen by many as the perfect union of two of the entertainment world’s biggest egos.

The Big Boss broadcast channel Colors shared a statement from Kardashian - written in Hindi - ahead of her arrival: “Namaste India…main Kim Kardashian aa rahi hoon…Bigg Boss ke ghar mein (I, Kim Kardashian, am coming to the Bigg Boss house).”
