first_imgRajpal YadavTwitterSalman Khan’s Bigg Boss 13 is set to hit screens soon and the makers have already started approaching celebrities to participate in the controversial reality show. Unlike the last couple of seasons where commoners were also part of the show, the 13th season will only see well-known celebrities competing against each other.While several popular names have surfaced as of now, the latest buzz is that Bollywood comedian Rajpal Yadav has been offered the show. Rajpal made news for serving jail term over non-payment of loan and given the format of the show, the comedian-actor would be a perfect personality to be locked inside the madhouse.A source told PinkVilla, “Given that the format of the show involves having at least one controversial celebrity in the glass-walled house, makers deemed Rajpal to be a great fit. The actor-comedian is known for being controversial and has recently served a jail term as well which makes him an interesting personality for the viewers. To top it all, his one-liners can add the right amount of entertainment value to the show.”Meanwhile, International Business Times, India, had learnt that Dayanand Shetty, popularly known as Daya of CID fame, was likely to enter the show. Not just that, popular film and TV actress Meghna Malik aka Ammaji of Na Aana Is Des Laado and actor Karan Vohra were also considered for Bigg Boss 13.Popular actresses Ankita Lokhande and Devoleena Bhattacharjee have also been approached, although nothing has been confirmed yet.While it was said that the format of having commoners on the show was not working out for the makers in terms of TRPs, a source had told IBT India that “no Bollywood celebrity is interested to share screen space and test their patience on camera and even the same response comes when we approach big names from the television industry.” Rajpal Yadav with his daughters and wife Radha.Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgRohingya refugee camp in Cox`s Bazar. File PhotoMyanmar is sending a high-level delegation soon to camps in Bangladesh to explain to hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims how they can return home, Myanmar’s UN ambassador said Monday.Some 740,000 Rohingya fled a crackdown by Myanmar’s military in 2017 in Rakhine state and are living in camps in Cox’s Bazar. Many refugees have been traumatized, providing accounts of rape, mass killings and razing of villages.Myanmar’s ambassador Hau Do Suan told a General Assembly meeting that his government will “dispatch a high level delegation to Cox’s Bazar very soon, by the end of July, to explain to the displaced people the arrangements made for the repatriation and resettlement.”He said some 30,000 Rohingya had requested to return, of whom about 13,200 have been verified as former residents and “can return to Rakhine anytime”.Myanmar has faced international pressure to allow the Rohingya to return to Rakhine and grant them citizenship rights.The United Nations has complained that progress to address the refugee crisis has been far too slow.”The only viable solution for the refugees is the safe, voluntary and dignified repatriation to Myanmar,” said UN envoy to Myanmar Christine Schraner-Burgener.”And the key responsibility for creating conducive conditions in Rakhine lies with Myanmar.”She said that a “first step” to addressing the Rakhine crisis would be to halt the heavy fighting with the Arakan Army (AA), a group pushing for more autonomy for the state’s ethnic Buddhists.The United Nations has described as “ethnic cleansing” the mass expulsion of the Rohingya, but Myanmar’s army insists the campaign was justified to root out Rohingya insurgents who staged deadly raids on border posts in August 2017.last_img
