Canadian model and former "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson will appear in reality television show "Bigg Boss," the Indian version of "Big Brother."

Anderson, 43, was set to arrive in Mumbai late Monday and enter the live studio near the city Tuesday, a spokesman for the Colors television channel said.

The actress, who appeared nude in Playboy magazine earlier this year, will join other contestants on the show, including a former bandit and the Great Khali, a popular World Wrestling Entertainment performer.

"Bigg Boss," which is in its fourth series, ran into controversy in the first week of this year's edition when activists from the Hindu nationalist Shiv Sena party protested against two Pakistani artists appearing on the show.

The show, hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, included Pakistanis Veena Malik and Ali Saleem. Indian police arrested 25 people at the protest.
