Pornhub queen Mia Khalifa has been rumoured to appear in Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Celebrity Big Brother (UK). The Lebanese-born porn star has been apparently approached to make an entry into the ninth season of the controversial reality TV show.

"The channels have approached a lot of people this time. Mia also is one of them. Talks are on with her and she too has shown interest. The modalities need to be worked out first," a source told DNA India.

"That also needs to be planned. If she says yes, she might be roped in immediately. If not, she might make a grand wild card entry as the show proceeds," the insider added.

Khalifa, who moved to the US as a teenager, sparked outrage in the Middle East after making her porn debut in October 2014. Khalifa's parents had issued a statement claiming that they have cut ties with their daughter, after discovering she is a pornstar.

"We are probably paying the price of living away from our homeland; our kids had to adapt to societies that don't resemble our culture, traditions and values," the statement read. "Hence, we emphasize that we disassociate ourselves from her actions which do not reflect her family beliefs, her upbringing or her true Lebanese roots. We hope that she comes back to her senses as her image does not honor her family or her homeland -- Lebanon."

Meanwhile, former Indo-Canadian adult film star Sunny Leone shot to fame in India after appearing on the fifth season of the reality show. Following that, the 34-year-old actress started her career in Bollywood. Salman Khan will be back as the host of Bigg Boss 9.
