Why you will NOT see Pooja Bedi in Bigg Boss 5 finale

January 04, 2012 17:23 IST

Pooja BediThe grand finale of Bigg Boss Season 5 will see all the housemates re-unite on stageĀ -- everyone except Pooja Bedi!

Bedi has been asked to refrain from attending the finale even though she was a contestant on the show.

"Channel officials contacted me four days back and asked me to perform a medley act on the finale. Later, suddenly, they changed their minds," Bedi says.

"After two days, I get a call from them to inform me that I am not to attend the finale despite it being compulsory in my contract," she adds. "What changed in those two days? I really have no idea and there is no proper communication at all."

Bedi claims that the Colors channel officials informed her that the show's production house, Endemol, decided to shelve her act.

"But when I talked to Endemol, they shifted the blame on the channel," Bedi laughs.

The trouble for Bedi all started apparently when she accused the show's host Salman Khan for favouring housemate Mahek Chahal, and telling off the other housemates especially Sidharth Bharadwaj.

She had even claimed that Khan was misusing his position as host.

When Bedi contacted Salman to find out if he had anything to do with her ouster, he texted her back stating: "Endemol is the production house, channel is Colors and Sanjay (Dutt) is host! And that I should ask them," she paraphrased.

So what does she plan to do during the finale? "I will watch the finale with my family at home. I want my best friends Juhi Parmar or Sky to win because they were entertaining, colourful and added value to the show," she says.

According to unconfirmed sources, Pooja Missra may also be ousted from the finale, thanks to her outburst to the media.
