"Shanti too deserves a chance. How do we know what kind of person she is in real life?"
Rumour has it that for 2014, the producers of Bigg Boss 8 have a dynamite up their sleeve waiting to explode inside the house.
Relax! This dynamite is none other than their next wild card entry, the sultry Shanti Dynamite.
Popular British adult star Shanti, whose real name is Sofia Vasileiadou, is half Sikh and half Greek. Born in Uganda and raised in the UK, she is considered one of Britain’s sexiest Asian women.
Shanti recently made her move to India and has been rapidly growing in popularity. She will soon be making her Bollywood debut opposite 2013’s Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan.
Shanti even has her own production company which shoots Indian adult music videos, AIDS awareness programs and sex education material in India.
While the current contestants of Bigg Boss 8 are busy being each other’s brother, sister, daughter, father inside the house, making it more like a family drama than a reality show, it will be exciting to see how they (especially the males) will react to Shanti’s entry.
Despite the show, Bigg Boss, having a worldwide following, the continuous drop in the television ratings this season has forced the makers to introduce some controversial players in the show to appeal to audiences.
Recently, when the contestants, drama and fights inside the house were not helping ratings, the Bigg Boss team introduced a wild card entry in the form of Ali Quli Mirza. However his shot at saving the show has failed and so, the makers have thought of introducing a twist by roping in a porn star.
In previous seasons of Bigg Boss, controversial celebrities like Pamela Anderson were invited on the show to grab attention. In 2011, porn star Sunny Leone‘s grand entrance into the Bigg Boss house caused immense excitement both inside and outside, visibly boosting the show’s ratings.
But not everyone is keen on this obvious attempt to raise viewing numbers. Recently evicted Bigg Boss contestant, Soni Singh said in an interview:
“We all know it is not correct to promote porn stars. Why do we encourage them? There are so many talented people who are waiting for that one chance to prove their potential.”
She further added: “As long as she [Shanti] doesn’t promote pornography in the show, it is fine. If we get to know about the life she lives and the kind of person she is in real life, it is okay.
“I have played negative roles in family shows, but that doesn’t make me the same person in real life. So I think Shanti too deserves a chance. How do we know what kind of person she is in real life?”
Shanti has already caused much controversy outside in India by going head to head with the popular Sunny Leone who has successfully established herself into Bollywood.
Shanti also made headlines after proclaiming herself to be the first Indian Playboy girl and further rubbishing Sherlyn Chopra’s statement claiming the same.
Now only time will tell if Shanti’s entry will be as fiery as allegedly claimed! It will also be interesting to see how she gets along with the hot male contestant, Upen Patel, who comes from Britain as well.
What is guaranteed is the rise in TRP’s, more controversies in the house and Gautam Gulati’s brand new, self-composed song for Shanti Dynamite!
