Bappi Lahiri is on everyone's list of people they want to see on celebrity reality show ‘Bigg Boss’. The roly-poly music composer has been offered the show twice, but he has turned it down on both occasions.
One of the reasons for saying "no" is his girth.
It is learnt that the Bappida needs help to dress in the morning, and for other normal activities that most people manage to do themselves. The singer has a boy 24X7 at home to assist him. And since he cannot take a helper to the show, he will never be seen on it.
In the Bigg Boss house, every inmate has to do their own work and Bappi isn't used to doing anything for himself, so he is not keen to be on the show.
The producers of the reality show are eager to have Bappida on board as he would be highly entertaining with his jewellery, flamboyant costumes and his 'Bengali' Hindi.
Lahiri who is currently away in Dubai for a show, says, "Not doing the show has nothing to do with my weight. I have lost a lot of weight now. I am not like stars who need their boys to put on their shoes and tie their laces! I can dress myself."
