Vikas Gupta is known as the Mastermind of Bigg Boss. The producer-director emerged as the second runner-up in Bigg Boss 11, and since then has been closely associated with the show. He has appeared numerous time as a guest in the controversial reality show.
However, this year Vikas Gupta’s name has been removed by the makers from the ‘special guest’ list of Bigg Boss 14.
According to the latest report on the Times of India, Vikas will not be entering the BB 14 house. Reportedly, Vikas was to enter with Sidharth Shukla, Hina Khan, and Gauahar Khan. The stage was also set for his secret entry. Vikas was informed about the same and was ready to make things happening in Bigg Boss 14.
A source revealed to TOI that Vikas’ name was cancelled at more or less at the last minute, and it is still a mystery why it was done. ‘One wonders who did this to him and why. It was not in good taste, especially if you consider that his presence in the last 3 seasons- Season 11, 12, and 13- garnered good TRPs,’ said the source.
The report also states that apparently, Vikas had kept some of his projects on hold for Bigg Boss 14. He had accommodated and blocked his dates for BB 14.
When TOI reached out to Vikas regarding the same, he admitted the news. Vikas revealed that he was approached for Bigg Boss 14, and was all ready for it. But now, he will not be seen on the show. ‘Yes, I was approached for Bigg Boss 14 and I was game for it. It seems, they changed their mind. I am not going now. But it is okay, Vikas was quoted saying.
Meanwhile, the new promos of Bigg Boss 14 feature Sidharth Shukla, Gauahar Khan, and Hina Khan. Bigg Boss 14 goes on floors from October 3, 2020.
