The starlet will compete in the American show’s desi version which will go on air from next month
If you really thought the new year would give you a break from reality shows, then don’t read this. You’ll only be more disappointed. Star Plus wants to start the new year with a new reality show – Survivor India. The adventure reality show is a hit in 48 countries and it seems the channelwallahs are hoping this one will give them a much-needed ratings boost. They’ve even roped in 22 celebrity participants to live on a remote, otherwise uninhabited island of the Phillippines. Those who claim they are up for the challenge include Shilpa Agnihotri, JD Majethia, Sangram Singh, Abhinav Shukla, Karan Patel, Timmy Narang, Sylvester Rodgers, Priyanka Bassi, Rajesh Khera and Munisha Khatwani. Surprisingly, Payal Rohatgi will also be contesting on the show. The starlet was recently in the news for claiming that Bigg Boss 5 was rigged (she had participated in Bigg Boss 2). Does that mean Survivor India won’t be rigged? Or will Payal end up as the winner just so that she won’t make any such claims again? We will know once the show starts airing on January 6.
