Jaffer has become so popular on screen that he was chosen for Bigg Boss-3, but was eliminated within no time.

He was considered to be a close associate of controversial former chief executive officer of TV9 and showman V Ravi Prakash.

In fact, Jaffer’s exit is also linked to the sacking of Ravi Prakash and it happened within a couple of months of Ravi Prakash’s exit from TV9.

Jaffer said he had resigned from TV9 because he felt he had lost the emotional connect with the channel.

Soon after his resignation, there was a talk that he might join the new channel being planned by Ravi Prakash or start his own digital news media.

But with Ravi Prakash being thrown behind the bars and the proposed channel’s fate hanging in balance, Jaffer had no option but to look for employment that would fetch him sustained income.

After all, he is not a businessman, but a journalist!
