However, organizers of 'Bigg Boss' confirmed to the BBC that "visa issues" were to blame for her not appearing on the reality show, but no other details behind the exact reason of her cancellation were released.

Kim also took to Instagram on Friday (Nov 21st) to announce that she will be a no-show on Saturday, but once again didn't specify what the actual problem was.

"To all my wonderful fans in India, I'm so disappointed I wasn't able to come to India as planned," she wrote. "When the opportunity presented itself to make the trip, there was a short window to coordinate all the elements necessary to make it happen."
