Mumbai, Sept 4 IBNS | 2 years ago

Model-turned-actress Poonam Pandey, who made her debut in Bollywood with the film Nasha, has reportedly turned down popular celebrity reality show 'Bigg Boss 7' for monetary reasons.

"For this season of 'Bigg Boss' Poonam was approached as well. She had asked Rs 3 crore, but they (officials of the show) agreed for Rs 2-2.5 crore. But she is not doing the show primarily due to monetary reasons," sources said.

Poonam is known for posting racy pictures on social networking sites.

Meanwhile, actor, anchor and casting director Imam Siddique is set to grab eyeballs yet again in Bigg Boss.

After being in the news for all the wrong reasons in the last season of the controversial show, Imam will once again become a part of Bigg Boss.

According to the sources, Imam will be a part of Bigg Boss this year but from the outside.

Tollywood actress Sandhya Sharma is likely to be a part in Bigg Boss 7.

Confirming the news, Sandhya said, "Yes I was approached by a casting agent from the production house Endemol for Bigg Boss 7. My manager Rajesh Singh is in touch with them."

"I cannot comment on the status and cannot confirm or deny anything either way. It is for the media to write what they want to," she said.
