Pakistan cricketer Zulqarnain Haider seeks asylum in Big Boss reality show
The true reason behind Pakistan cricketer Zulqarnain Haider, fleeing to London has now emerged. Humor Unplugged, India’s favorite blog, has learnt that the former Pakistan wicket keeper wanted to gain entry into the house of Big Boss as a participant and that was the reason behind him enacting the whole death threat drama. Big Boss is a reality TV programme broadcast in India and follows the Big Brother format.
Haider, according to close sources, will make a formal appeal for asylum in the house of Big Boss this week and his appeal in all likelihood will be accepted. Big Boss sources have told Humor Unplugged that the show, which has a TRP of 0.1 is desperate to infuse a new twist in the plot to attract viewers. The show however is quite popular in Pakistan, where many see it as an ultimate chance to earn some quick bucks without being a suicide bomber or a gun\drugs runner.

A Pakistani TV channel is also planning to launch its own version of Big Boss. Tentatively christened Big Mullah, this show will have contestants locked up in a cave in NWFP where they will have to pursue a 'religious life' complete with grenades, rocket launchers, ISI agents and threats to the democracies of the freeworld.
