‘Visa Issue:’ India Blocks Kim Kardashian From Entering Country

Kim Kardashian West was blocked from entering India this coming weekend amid what their government described as a “visa issue,” although they refused to disclose the exact reason behind the visa cancellation. 

The India trip was part of Kardashian’s tour to promote her new fragrance “Fleur Fatale.” It was to include a planned guest appearance on a show deemed the Indian version of Big Brother, called Bigg Boss, scheduled for Saturday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The announcement of her canceled appearance came days after Kardashian posed nude, baring it all for a spread that featured her famous backside for Paper magazine.

Kardashian would have arrived in India by way of Australia before heading over to Dubai, where she is at the moment. News of Kardashian’s visit spread throughout India, and  upon her decision to cancel and postpone the trip to a later date, she issued the following message to her fans over Twitter:

The show Bigg Boss, currently in its eighth season, is hosted by Bollywood star Salman Khan; the actor-turned host touts a 25-year acting career which includes his heavy involvement in philanthropic endeavors, including his very own Being Human Foundation

Kardashian was reportedly offered $800,000 for the appearance on the show and would have appeared wearing a traditional Indian Sari, according to Time. Pamela Anderson appeared on Big Boss in 2010, and Indian porn star-turned Bollywood actress Sunny Leone has also appeared on the show.
