In a chat with the IANS, Sushil Kumar confirmed the news about the Bigg Boss 5 offer. He said, "I was approached by the officials of Endemol India and offered a place in Big Boss, but I refused. More than anything, my image is important for me. I don't want to do anything that affects my image."
However, Sushil Kumar, who is a native of Motihari in Bihar, has recently shifted his base to Delhi after he won five crores on KBC 5. Now, he is seriously preparing for his UPSC competitive exams. He says, "If I joined Big Boss and stayed there for some days, it would have changed my mindset and diverted me from my goal."
