Mandana Karimi

Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar needs no introduction. The publicist has handled the media for some of the best actors including Hrithik Roshan, Shilpa Shetty, Priyanka Chopra, Govinda, Randeep Hooda, Shiney Ahuja, Vivek Oberoi and movies like the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Don and Farhan Akhtar starrer Rock On!!

But around this time of the year, the public relations expert is more in demand in the media and social media for his crisis management for Bigg Boss celebrities. The PR specialist who handled the hype and hoopla for Shilpa Shetty through the thick and thin of her international racism controversy in Big Brother earlier, has completed handling a full 20 clients for the reality show's Indian version Bigg Boss.

He has handled the publicity for almost each and every controversial contestant from Rakhi Sawant, Sambhavna Seth, Kashmera Shah, Vindu Dara Singh, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Ashmit Patel, Amar Upadhyay, Sonali Raut, Aman Verma and Rahul Mahajan.

Even Pakistani starlet Veena Malik received an offer to enter Bigg Boss due to a controversy with his PR client, actress Neetu Chandra, which Dale propelled in national media. But we tracked the publicist down this month not to speak about these, as much to reveal about his latest and 20th client in Bigg Boss... the firebrand Mandana Karimi.

Yes! The Iran-born actress who is now appearing in Ekta Kapoor's 'Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3' with Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani, is making all the right noises on the show. Dale Bhagwagar is reported to have thoroughly guided her before she entered.

Mandana Karimi

As the Bigg Boss Season 9 Grand Finale nears, he has given a revealing interview to Phegency magazine which quizzed and grilled him about Mandana, till he spilled some beans. Read on to know more...
