Devender Singh The shocking shenanigans of conman Devender Singh, alias Bunty, on the new season of Bigg Boss, comes as no shock to director Dibakar Banerjee who has made a film based on Bunty’s life.

Dibakar feels something was not quite right with Bunty. “I met him in jail for the film very briefly. I couldn’t make head or tail of his behaviour. Later, the jail authorities told me he had a problem with authority.”

Dibakar wonders if the whole thing with Bunty is a publicity stunt. However, a reliable source from the channel confirms that Bunty has been sent packing for good. “There’s no question of his coming back. He has abused and violated the basic rules of the show. He abused the girls and broke the mike and camera. We had to persuade him out of the Bigg Boss house. We offered to send him back home to Delhi. But he refused to take our offer. As far as we are concerned, he’s out of show for good.”

The other school of thought is that Bunty was brought into the Bigg Boss’ house as in-house counterpart to the host Salman Khan.
