He caused controversy worldwide after his depiction of India in his cartoons, but now we will be seeing Aseem Trivedi on our TV screens for a different reason.
The cartoonist’s anti-corruption cartoons led to his arrest recently but later the charges were dropped. He is now set to appear as a contestant��in the latest season of ‘Bigg Boss’ which will be hosted by Salman Khan for the third consecutive year.
His father, Ashok, broke the news to a daily and said, ���My son is not glamour-struck, nor does he have any inclination to be a part of the showbiz. He wanted to be on the show so that he can be seen and heard.�
It is believed that Colors TV, the��channel on which the show will air, approached Trivedi soon after his release.
‘Bigg Boss 6’ will hit our screens on 7th October.
