However, the show is still all over social media. Many celebrities were approached for the show earlier and many have even rejected the show. One such celebrity who was approached was Anupamaa actor Sagar Parekh. Sagar was in the news as his death sequence in Anupamaa was getting all the attention. He played Samar’s role in the show. Fans were not happy with the death scene shown in the Rupali Ganguly starrer.

Post Sagar’s journey ended in Anupamaa, he got a lot of offers. The actor revealed that he was offered Bigg Boss 17, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 11 and many more shows. This was a big story in Entertainment news. Speaking to Etimes, Sagar revealed the reason why he did not do Bigg Boss 17. He said that he was keen on participating in the show.
