"He was approached last year too, but the deal didn't materialise. The makers were keen on having him on board this season. He is one of the expensive participants this season," TOI quoted a source close to the show.
Vivian has not confirmed nor rejected the news and just refused to comment says the report. The actor was last seen in Madhubala.. starring Drashti Dhami opposite him and the show saw peaking heights when it hit the small screen and terrible lows as the end of it, which had the makers pull the plug in the end.
The actor who has been away from any shows for the last 10 months says he is getting a number of offers but are not exciting enough to take up. There is absolutely no desperation to make a hurried return. I want to be back with a performance-oriented role," the actor said TOI recently.
While Vivian's participation is pending for confirmation, there are other names such as Ashish Choudhary, Faisal Khan, Shamita Shetty, Radhika Madan, Kavita Kaushik, Sanaya Irani and few other names making rounds to be confirmed. Jhalak.. this season is said to be hosted by Bigg Boss 8 contestant Preetam Singh and Manisha Paul.
