The channel Colors, has dismissed speculation about Maria Monica Susairaj's participation on Bigg Boss season 5. This Kannada actress, who walked out of jail after serving more than three years for the Neeraj Grover murder case was rumoured to be an inmate in the fifth season of the reality show.
"There are numerous speculative stories on Maria Susairaj's participation in Bigg Boss 5. But we'd like to clarify that we have neither approached Maria nor will be doing so in future," said a spokesperson of Colors, which has aired four seasons of Bigg Boss.
Neither Susairaj, nor her lawyer Sharif Sheikh were available for comment. Recently, Susairaj claimed that she was innocent and the conviction was a "stigma" on her life. "I know I am innocent and my God knows I am innocent," she had told a chaotic press conference marked by protests by a group of people led by filmmaker Ashok Pandit.
"I desperately sympathise (with Neeraj's family) losing somebody. The whole scenario is sad," she had said. On Neeraj's family blaming her for the crime, she had said, "I don't want to say anything about him or his family." Click to know more on Maria Susairaj
