Bigg Boss 8 has not been creating much of a buzz this year. Be it the relatively unknonwn faces or a lack of interest altogether in the show, it is yet to reach the crazy level it does every year.
The makers of the show have several wild card entries every season and the house of Bigg Boss 8 is set to open doors for the first wildcard contestant of this season for Dubai-based singer-actor Ali Quli Mirza.
Mirza is best known for his Arabic songs in Dubai, Britain and other parts of the Indian sub-continent and he will soon be making his Bollywood debut with Kamal Sadanah's movie Roar.

He is nervous about his entry into the house that has Sonali Raut, Karishma Tanna, Upen Patel, Soni Singh, Arya Babbar, Diandra Soares, Sushant Divgikar, Gautam Gulati, Praneet Bhat, Natasa Stankovic, Minissha Lamba, Puneet Issar and Pritam Singh as inmates. "Bigg Boss, this year, has been really unexpected and so I am nervous about how it will work out for me. While it is true that I am familiar with some of the contestants, they have an edge over me since they have already been living in the house for over three weeks now," Mirza said in a statement.
"I am only going inside with the hope of making some new friends. Let's see how it works out," he added.
The reality show airs on Colors.
