Last year too there was buzz about the Aussie joining the rest of the contestants on the show but things didn’t work out.

A source says, “This year they have approached him again and are currently deciding on his fees. If things fall into place then he will arrive in India soon and will join the other 13 celebrities. The cricketer has expressed his interest and is likely to take up the offer.”

Insiders say last year, he had been offered Rs 25 lakh per episode deal and this time the amount is expected to be bigger than this.

In the fifth season of the show, Australian batsman Andrew Symonds entered the house as a wild card entrant and was paid a whopping amount.

The spokesperson of the channel remained unavailable for comment.
