In a surprising turn of events, former Bigg Boss contestant and model Sofia Hayat has become a nun, and goes by the name Mother Sofia now.
A wild card entry on the seventh season of the reality show in 2013, Sofia featured with Candy Brar, Asif Azim, Ajaz Khan and Vivek Mishra, reports Hindustan Times.
Earlier in April, Sofia had posted a message on her Instagram account that indicated a change in heart. “We are beautiful without makeup...hair colour...fashion... We are perfect as we are. I’m sorry I gave you the impression otherwise. I am changed. I love you all. Gaia Sofia Mother.”
The past month also saw a flood of pictures expressing her new-found spirituality.
At one point, Sofia wrote, “When I was 16, I used to admire people with luxuries. Now I admire people with inner peace.” Her other television stints include Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki.
The British model-actor-singer was named the new ‘Curvy Icon’ by Vogue Italia in 2012. She was listed No 81 on FHM’s list of sexiest women in the world in September 2013.
