Kim Kardashian to join Indian Bigg Boss house
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is set to make an appearance on the Indian version of Big Brother, a spokesperson for the channel airing the show says.
Kardashian will join the remaining 12 participants on the programme, known as Bigg Boss, in Mumbai on Saturday.
Kardashian is a household name in the UK and the US, best known for reality shows and a leaked sex tape.
Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and late reality TV star Jade Goody have also appeared on Bigg Boss.
The 34-year-old Kardashian, who is visiting India this week for the first time, will appear in Bigg Boss as a "guest to interact with the contestants", a statement by the Colors channel said.
"Namaste India... main Kim Kardashian aa rahi hoon India... Bigg Boss ke ghar mein [Hello India, I am Kim Kardashian and I am coming to the Bigg Boss house]," the statement quoted Kardashian as saying.
The eighth season of the programme started in October.
Among the Indian participants in the house this year are a number of models and TV actors. The show is hosted by Bollywood star Salman Khan.
Last week, 34-year-old Kardashian appeared nude on the latest cover of Paper magazine with the caption 'Break the Internet'.
Hundreds of thousands discussed Kardashian's body and she was the butt of many jokes as parody images circulated online.
